Overview

This double disc by Rhino includes 26 tracks from virtually all versions of Yes. While it rightly focuses on the band's singles and well-known album tracks from 1968 to 2001, it leaves off Yes' celebrated -- and reviled -- excess from albums like Tales from Topographic Oceans (which needs to be experienced in full to either love it or hate it). Rhino cross-licensed much of the later material. While it's true that there are many compilations out there, none of them go as far as this one in offering such a complete portrait of a band that has undergone many reunions and personnel changes. All the hits are here: there's a complete "Starship Trooper" and "Yours Is No Disgrace," the "I've Seen All Good People" suite, "Roundabout," "Long Distance Runaround," the "And You and I" suite, and "Siberian Khatru." And more. That said, there is also "Going for the One," "Owner of a Lonely Heart," the single edits of "The Calling" and "Homeworld," and a new edit of "Soon" from Relayer. Put sound and content together and you have a truly definitive collection -- insofar as there can be one. Those who have been longtime fans may want this as a quick best-of. Newbies will dig this as a collection builder and a fantastic introduction to one of the bands that helped change the face of rock -- whether for better or worse will be your opinion.
