Yes

Owner of a Lonely Heart (7 inch Vinyl Single)

Review by Gary Hill

Going back and catching up on some vinyl releases, this one should be pretty easy to find online. I’ve reviewed both songs here previously, so for the sake of consistency, those reviews are used as the source material here. I would say that this is kind of “collector’s only” at this point, but I’ve got several alternate copies myself, so it’s worthwhile in that regard.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2016  Volume 1 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Side A

            
Owner of a Lonely Heart
A quick percussion run gives way to the familiar crunch guitar line. While this cut is an understated hard rocking piece, it has been quite influential, in of all music, R & B, in its production. This is not what one would normally think of as "Yes music.” It's not prog and is definitely overplayed. Still, it does have its moments.
Side B
              
Our Song
I've always felt that this cut has some of the most Yesish texture of anything on 90125, but it feels almost more like '80s era Kansas trying to sound like Yes. Still, this is a good rocker.
You'll find concert pics of this artist in the Music Street Journal members area.
