House of Yes: Live From House of Blues

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Gary Hill
Released as a companion CD soundtrack to a live DVD/VHS offering, this two-disc set captures the group's Las Vegas show at the House of Blues. Including a nearly complete set from The Ladder tour seems to be a double-edged blade. This creates for a definite completeness as a concert recording. However, many of the tracks on this set have already shown up on other live Yes sets. Followers of the band will find an appeal to this disc that goes beyond the music. The CD represents a live chronicle of The Ladder/Open Your Eyes lineup of the band.

All Music Guide - Gary Hill
Released as a companion CD soundtrack to a live DVD/VHS offering, this two-disc set captures the group's Las Vegas show at the House of Blues. Including a nearly complete set from The Ladder tour seems to be a double-edged blade. This creates for a definite completeness as a concert recording. However, many of the tracks on this set have already shown up on other live Yes sets. Followers of the band will find an appeal to this disc that goes beyond the music. The CD represents a live chronicle of The Ladder/Open Your Eyes lineup of the band. By the time House of Yes was released, Billy Sherwood had already become a "former member" and Igor Khoroshev was to follow late in 2000, making this a bit of an end of a chapter. It includes many standout moments, and some that don't shine quite so brightly. Sitting among the great side are Steve Howe's extended guitar solo in the opening track "Yours Is No Disgrace," a rendition of The Ladder's epic "Homeworld," and the inclusion of both "Lightning Strikes" and "Face to Face" from that same album. Probably one of the more subtle but interesting things this disc offers is a short improvised bit whose chorus is "Yes is in the House of Blues." Among the down sides, in many ways it is unfortunate, but probably unavoidable, that the group felt compelled to include the overplayed "Roundabout" and "Owner of a Lonely Heart." That said, the particular rendition of "Owner" is very inspired and includes a fine performance of the "Cinema" instrumental cut as its introduction. The other central complaint is that in many places the CD feels very over-produced, losing much of its live texture.

    The greatest live album of Yes!

    This album was recorded live during their tour of their 1999 release of "The Ladder". Any generation of Yes fans will really love this album.

    YES Captured LIVE!!!

    A top-notch recording of a recent tour! I saw this show in Seattle and the this live version recorded a few days earlier in Las Vegas, captures ''the moment'' perfectly!
