    I voted a three. Mainly because it’s not indicated what I’m voting on, so that seems fair.

      2/5 for the first half, 3.75/5 for the second half.

        3 for me as well. I like bits and pieces of the remix, but I’ll stick to the original version for the lead vocals.

            2 stars. Those are for the Suite and Into the Storm, which I really like. Those are the only two songs from the album I still listen to.

              I gave it a 2 for the last three tracks, which are quite good.

                I vote 5 for the original. A 21st century Yes album not based on the classic 70's run. The Drama lineup resurrected. I got my wish for one more Drama album. Return Trip I'll vote 4 or sometimes even a 3.5. As much as I love Trevor Horn's involvement with Yes, I felt some of the musical changes on Return Trip weren't as effective as on the original. I'm glad Horn got to do vocals and that there's an extra Yes song on there (unfortunately sung by Howe), but David's vocals are good on the 2011 version, in some ways more Horn than Horn. Total 5 for the original, on par with most Yes classics.

                  I voted 5. Loved the Benoit era and also got a somewhat of a 2nd Drama album with Return. Both are light years ahead of anything released after.

                    5.

                    This is an astonishin' album.
                    The suite is magnificent.
                    Side 2 songs are beautifully crafted.
                    Superb Dean cover.

                          A solid 4. There are some I prefer Benoit's version, and some Trevor's. Even with it's bumpy rides, I can listen to all of either album. The first since Drama for me.

                          I rediscovered Squackett and found there to be some really great songs on there. The idea that Chris asked Hackett to join Yes could have been very interesting (ducks from tormatos being thrown at me from Howe insanefans lol) . Or at least to have heard a second album from them.

                            I like it a lot, probably got more enjoyment from this album than any Yes have released since Big Generator.
