Greatest-hits collections from progressive rock acts are by their very nature problematic. The 15-minute track times, unusual crossfades, and lack of obvious singles can keep much of the artist's most notable work from making an appearance, something that Rhino's generic-sounding Greatest Hits compilation from Yes almost manages to avoid.

Overview

Greatest-hits collections from progressive rock acts are by their very nature problematic. The 15-minute track times, unusual crossfades, and lack of obvious singles can keep much of the artist's most notable work from making an appearance, something that Rhino's generic-sounding Greatest Hits compilation from Yes almost manages to avoid. Built chronologically, obvious cuts like "Roundabout," "Owner of a Lonely Heart," "I've Seen All Good People," and "Starship Troopers" are supported by deeper singles such as "Survival," "Soon," and 90125's brilliantly arranged "Leave It," making this scant, 12-track anthology one of the better compact Yes overviews to come out in years.

Highlights: The Very Best of Yes 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Condensing the best of Yes's output onto one disc is basically impossible, since most of their songs are extremely long (in excess of eight minutes). Their three great extended pieces - 'Close to the Edge', 'The Gates of Delirium', and 'Awaken' - are absent. So is the beautiful 'And You And I', my favorite Yes tune. This disc does include the radio staples such as 'Your Move' and 'Roundabout', but there is so much more to the Yes discography.
