Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
One of the pioneering progressive bands during the ‘70s, Yes achieved rock-legend status thanks to its cosmic sound, ambitious orchestration, and occasional knack for the sublime pop hook. With the soaring voice of Jon Anderson as the centerpiece, Yes masterfully incorporated the electrifying guitar sounds of Steve Howe, the driving bass of Chris Squire, and the innovative synthesizer work of Rick Wakeman to create such critically acclaimed and popular albums as "Fragile" and "Close to the Edge." This live, two-disc set, filmed during Yes's Symphonic Live Tour in November, 2001, features Anderson, Howe, Squire, and the band's longtime drummer Alan White, all jamming on over two and half hours of concert footage. Highlights include such Yes classics as "Long Distance Runaround" and "Roundabout," along with the never-before-seen documentary "Dreamtime" and the music video "Don’t Go." Tracks are as follows:
  • Overture
  • Close to the Edge
  • Long Distance Runaround
  • Don't Go
  • In the Presence of
  • Gates of Delirium
  • Steve Howe Guitar Solo
  • Starship Trooper
  • Magnification
  • And You and I
  • Ritual
  • I've Seen All Good People
  • Owner of a Lonely Heart

    The musical performance from Yes is very impressive, specially '' Gates of Delirium ''. I'm always amazed to listen to the voice of J.Anderson, his voice is still so authentic and vivid even after 30 years... Technically, both camera angle and video editing are far of being optimal. Some of the special effects and animation are really cheesy and don't bring anything to the performance. The Stereo mix is quite disturbing sometimes since YES and the Symphonic Orchestra does not always blend very well togheter. I couldn't comment the Surround Mix since I don't have the proper set-up for it. But overall the musical performance goes over the technique and if you' re a Yes fan, this DVD is highly recommended.

    This is a frustrating video to watch for a dedicated Yes fan. Whereas the music is top notch as usual, the video is beyond poor. The camera angles are less then optimum, and the editing is remarkably bad. Oh, it's fun to watch, but thats just because it is Yes, and its always a treat to watch them perform. But this video is frustrating. You'll see. What Yes needs is some maniac/fan to do the editing. Someone with a note for note love affair with the music who can show other fans exactly what is being emphasized at any given moment. This video only gets it once in a while by accident.

    Please ignore any review critising the way this DVD has been shot or put together. As someone who works in TV I've seen a lot of music videos. This is ONE of THE best!!! Unlike other Yes videos this one uses numerous camera angles. The editing and shot changes are fantastic. The band really pushed the boat out of this one. Then there's the Music. Well I wasn't sure if I'd like YES with an orchestera but they sound superb. The whole band is on top form. The orchestra actually makes some of the songs sound even better! (partic. Close to the Edge) A fantastic DVD. A must have for music lovers as well as YES fans.

    I was amazed by the quality of the House of Blues. This one is even better. I just purchased more copies as gifts. I also recently got Peter Gabriel - Secret World. That one is great too.
