Far and away the longest lasting and the most successful of the '70s progressive rock groups, Yes proved to be one of the lingering success stories from that musical genre. The band, founded in 1968, overcame a generational shift in its audience and the departure of its most visible members at key points in its history to reach the end of the century as the definitive progressive rock ...

5.0 out of 5 stars How on earth do you rate this?? 10 Jan 2007
By John Wyant VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Tricky one, this. I was sorely tempted to give it just 1 star, as it is clearly a cynical marketing ploy to get long-term fans (such as myself) to pay for stuff they've already got, just to get hold of the 'live at Montreux' CD - which they CLAIM will be exclusive to this package.

But then I looked at the price, especially here on Amazon. 17.99 for 5 CDs is an absolute bargain, and not much more than you would have paid for 'live at Montreux' on its own, if it was available as such.

Also, if you're one of the people who believe that Yes stopped making decent music 'round about' 1978 (which I'm definitely NOT, by the way!), then you could be in for a pleasant surprise by allowing yourself to catch up with the more recent stuff.

'Talk' was the last Trevor Rabin-era Yes album. I actually reviewed this over on Amazon.com, if you're interested, but to summarise: this was, for me, a wrongly overlooked album - there are some great songs on here - 'Calling' is a great opener, just as 'Endless Dream' is a fantastic 11-minute epic that shows that Rabin COULD do prog, and do it well. Meanwhile, 'Real Love' must rank as the heaviest song that Yes ever recorded in any line-up (that's not a criticism, by the way, in case you were wondering!).

'Open Your Eyes' is probably the most accessible, dare I say it, 'commercial' album of their carreer ('90125' included). For a start, all the songs are under 6 minutes long! And I know some people have difficulty squaring this with being a Yes album, but if you just approach it with an open mind ('open eyes'?), simply as a music lover, there is some great stuff on here, especially the first 5 tracks and the last one. Think of it as a lost 'Conspiracy' album if you must, but don't dismiss it out of hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Price, Great Set 13 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For someone who missed out on Yes in their youth and just discovered them in there 60s this box set was great, as is the other five CD set offered by Amazon. Ok you don't get the posh detail notes you would get if bought individually and art work, but lets face it you buy for the music. The live CD is worth the money spent alone. Some Yes snobs look down on Yes's later music but times cannot stand still. Lets face it, the 60s-70s are gone. I listen to both rock music and classical and find Yes a bridge between the two. I think if Mozart was alive today he might be a member of Yes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value. 28 Feb 2014
By Victor
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The best element of this product is its value. I was only really after 'Talk' but the price of that alone was about the same as that for 5 cds in this package. The live cd is good, though just a series of extracts from another double cd. Magnification is very good but 'Open Your Eyes' and 'The Ladder' (with the exception of the opening track 'Homeworld' which sits alongside any other Yes classic) disappoint.
However, you can't go wrong with this box set.
