    I like "Here if you Listen" a little bit better than the new one, but I haven't spent enough time with it. It's very good, though, and Crosby's voice is velvety smooth. Really remarkable.

    Nice track. It really misses the soaring harmonies that Chris Squire used to provide and the outro is repetitive. It also seems to be largely in 4/4, so the compound rhythms of old Yes are absent. ...
