The Ladder is brillant, a true testament to how after 30 plus years they can all be so creative. Few people can work at something that long and still sound as fresh as day one. Listen to YES first album and them listen to The Ladder and think of all the years in between, just amazing they can do that. And Bruce did a great job, he went out at the peak of his skills.

A damn strong effort!!!!

Postby Mr. Stout » Thu Jun 28, 2007 5:22 pm

I might have reviewed this somewhere else, but Ill gladly offer my take on this again. This was a solid album, and while it may not rival the classic Yes albums of the seventies, this effort has a lot going for it. A strong producer like Bruce Fairburn who knocked heads together certainly helped.(He probaly locked them all in a back room and beat the shit out of them is what probaly happned). But all kidding aside, the album consists of good songwriting and melodies that are catchy. The days of making epics such as Awaken and Gates of Delrium were far over. Now it may not have been progressive or `cutting edge' like their seventies work, the album still showed for me that Yes were still a viable band.
It was so refreshing to hear Chris Squire rock out on the bass again, especially on `New Language', `Face to face' and `Lightning Strikes'. His bass playing had become rudimentary and sparse on previous albums for the most part.

I'll always love The Ladder. It was the first Yes album I listened to straight through. Now that I know a lot more of their music and what they're all about, I love it even more.
While I do think that Bruce Fairburn deserves a lot of credit for this album being so great, I need to say that I think Igor Khorchev deserves more. This one would have been a flop without him. He sounded more like early Wakeman than Rick does now.

I think it was a shame Bruce died before the production was finished - it might have been even better! Yeh, I thought as a player Igor was terrific & could see that with Billy & he on board the band would go on to great things - between them they seem to put a new energy into the band.

Billy's just posted some interesting comments on the songwriting process around OYE/The Ladder on Yesfans (under the Circa vs Conspiracy thread) - worth a butchers!

When "The Ladder" came out I really thought that the commercial sound of the songs could've opened a new door to radio airplay and attention from a wider audience - and it did enjoy some airplay in ther New York area...I still feel that, among the later releases, this is one of the finest...on the other hand I have NEVER found anything listenable on "Talk". I review it every few years and still just have not ever found anything of value to that LP...it is the ONLY Yes effort that I've ever felt that way about.
