...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

Hear a Sample of Yes’ ‘Believe Again’ Single Read More: Hear a Sample of Yes' 'Believe Again' Single



‘Heaven & Earth,’ due July 22 in the U.S., is the 21st studio album in the Yes discography — but it also marks a new beginning, featuring the first recorded collaborations between current singer Jon Davison and the other members of the band. Fans can catch their first glimpse of the new Yes sound with a sample of the album’s leadoff track, ‘Believe Again.’

Of course, as most fans are already aware, the new sound isn’t altogether different from the old one — right down to Davison’s voice, which bears a distinct resemblance to departed singer Jon Anderson‘s. And while Davison’s songwriting contributions injected a fresh compositional element, ‘Heaven & Earth’ is strongly steeped in the stuff Yes has always been known for, including metaphysical lyrics and instrumental virtuosity manifested through lengthy song arrangements. At a mere 90 seconds, the ‘Believe Again’ sample doesn’t offer much of the latter, but it should still give you an idea of where the band is coming from with the new LP.
