In the City of Angels is the 5th solo album by Yes lead singer Jon Anderson, released in 1988.

Unlike most of Anderson's previous solo works, this album contains many additional songwriters. Consequently, this is the most straight-ahead commercial pop album in his oeuvre, and sounds closer to a Toto album than his own earlier work—in fact, that band performs on several songs. Jon reciprocated the favor by performing on their album The Seventh One (recorded about the same time as In the City of Angels).
