||so much distant|
If you consider the team that made "Union", the result is very faaaaaaaaaar from things like "Fragile" or "Anderson Bruford Wakeman and Howe". Itīs a big deception, the worst album of the band together with "Tales from topographic oceans".

||This is why they're Still Alive....|
Heres the proof...Buy it, stick in the player, Put on headphones, lay down, close your eyes and hear, no....feel track 9 "The more you Live" penetrate your life. Its an experience even more when you realize a bass player wrote this tune. Stupid me, it took 3 times for me to get it. (The answer is Let Go.) The potential for a single superbly written, arranged and performed piece of music to bring you to tears of sadness and joy, simultaneously, earns the title masterpiece. This collection has several. The "union" of 2 bands caused the pinnacle of each of these creative individuals to become finally and vividly exposed. Although separate songs of Yeswest and ABWH made this project, if you read up on the process, they selectively added further layers of each performers independant style only where it fit and impacted the song farther. Hear the alternating reggae/12 bar blues arrangement of "Saving my heart" and youll be convinced that these guys came together for a higher purpose on this one. The combined harmonics of Rabin and Anderson vocally steals my ears.(Its hard at times to distinguish which one was singing on what tune) This one has it all...including the "answer"

||Regard it as a "Collection" album|
Things I have read on this release prompt me to add a word of advice. As Union is essentially two sets of music from two separate lineups, it would not be fair to expect it to flow as, say, "Talk" or "Close to the Edge". Rather, think of it as a collection of the best of ABWH and YES-West on the same disk--much like Yesstory or Best of Yes. This album must be listened to for the individual songs themselves--not the flow (which isn't there). If you prefer, do what I do: program your CD player for the ABWH tracks one day and the YES-West tacks another day. Then a fair amount of consistency can be created.

||Disjointed, not the best one from Yes|
There were a few highlights on this album for me: 'Take the Water to the Mountain', 'Lift me up', 'Saving my Heart', 'The More you Live', and 'Miracle of Life'. But the mix of the two Yes styles just didn't work for me. I guess I like my Yes segregated. Not a bad album, but not 'Highly Rated'.

||A Union of Excellence|
When I first heard of this release I attributed it to "wishful thinking". Eight members of Yes together on one album? Couldn't be. When I first saw it in the bins I expected more of the 80's Yes in line with 90125, so that I didn't dare buy it till I checked it out at the Chicago PUblic Library. But surprise--I loved it! Being essentially a collection of two separate Yes lineups, I found the ABWH tracks powerful (with Levin/Bruford rhythm section from King Crimson's recent period) and yet fully captivating in the traditionally Yes genre. Not that it tried to turn back the clock, but rather it recaptured the "spirit" of the 70's innovation in an undeniably 90's context. The Rabin-Yes tracks were also good--having matured from 90125 through Big Generator, there is a maturity developing which was to peak in "Talk". The tight musicianship, fat vocals--even the catchy tunes--make this one of the most satisfying Yes collections since the 70's. It sparked my interest to go back and complete my collection which I had given up after 9012Live...
