This was a big hit for the band, courtesy of "Owner of a Lonely Heart" and new guitarist Trevor Rabin. On first listen, it seems that 90125 is a departure from Yes's prog roots, but there are plenty of off-the-wall ideas on this album. There are even a few longer tracks, such as "Changes" and "Hearts." The production might be of the era, but it's still a great, with the trademark Yes musicianship.
This album is quintessentially Summer for me. It's dance music, but the whole album is really warm. Just listen to it and you feel the sun beaming down on your shoulder. It doesn't sound dated, which is incredible, given the time period. New Order once again effortlessly fused dance and rock music on what could be their masterpiece.
wow I had no idea any videogame had been in development for this long...
have you tried the various isometric graphics layers that have been built on top of the core game?
Ah reminds me of all those days playing rogue. Like Zork, these games constantly remind me that the graphics and technology are secondary to great game play.
