This concert film captures the classic line-up of the prog-rock band Yes performing together again in 1996. The band presents a dozen songs including "I've Seen All Good People," &Close to the Edge," "Roundabout," and "Turn of the Century." ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
Easily the best sounding Yes concert DVD I've heard, but it was obvious that there was some offstage augmentation of the performance. It almost gets a little too heavy-handed, at times. Wakeman and Squire were on their game for this one, although I thought Howe was a bit shoft of his usual greatness. Anderson sounded better than live, but it was apparent that he was getting some help from Mr. mixing board.
I fail to understand the need to superimpose all the special effects *over* the natural stage show. I'm paying to watch Yes in concert, not watch some special effects being generated by a video toaster while Yes plays in the background!
The production also fails to capture the scene. It almost seems like Yes is playing on a stage, with a false front being presented for the audience. There's no sense of the event given here.
This recording is getting older, like us all. This is the core band members with Rick Wakeman at keyboards. Excellent footage of him playing the different keyboards. Starship Trooper reeeaaalllly ROCKS! This is the best I have ever seen them perform this song in thirty years. We love when they play! The do the first side of Topographic Oceans too, which is a real treat!
