Big Generator is the twelfth studio album by Yes, released on 21 September 1987 by Atco Records. Its sessions dragged on for two years, largely due to creative differences. Guitarist Trevor Rabin was aiming to progress beyond 90125, while founding lead vocalist Jon Anderson was beginning to yearn for more traditional Yes music.

The result was an album that was successful commercially and critically, birthing two hits in the process: "Love Will Find A Way" and "Rhythm Of Love" (their last in the US Top 40). But it was not as popular as 90125, and feeling that the band was going in a direction he didn't want to pursue, Jon Anderson began working on other projects at the conclusion of the Big Generator tour in 1988.

The album was reissued in 2009, including bonus tracks, as all previous Atlantic studio releases have been.

Big Generator reached #17 in the UK and #15 is the US during a chart stay of 30 weeks.
