4.0 out of 5 stars At Montreux: Yes do Jazz. 11 Dec 2008
By Perry Duke VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
OK: We have Yessongs from the band as Young Turks in the `70s, we have the technical mastery of Keys to Ascension at the turn of the century, we have live Yes barnstorming at the House of Blues, we have Yesshows, and - if you really want it - we have The Word is Live. Do we need Yes at Montreux?

The good:

- Good to great audio quality - miles away from the awful "Word is Live" material
- Quite a few rare live tracks - South Side of the Sky, We Have Heaven
- Loose and different arrangements, and some playfulness. Chris and Alan breaking into "Tempus Fugit" in the middle of "The Fish", and quoting "Silent Wings of Freedom" too. Rick doing a great atmospheric intro to "Don't Kill the Whale".
- a LOT of Fragile. Their best album ;-). Well, a contender, anyway.
- some nice touches of Jon the Ringmaster, with tambourine and some talk between songs.
- Classic Yes - Jon, Chris, Steve, Rick and Alan.

The bad:

- The usual old warhorses - And You and I, Siberian Khatru
- Some imperfect mixing in places, and some experiments that don't quite work along with the ones that do.
- A couple of off-key harmonies from Steve Howe (I think) in places - Don't Kill the Whale and We Have Heaven not least.

The whole is more than these parts. This is a Jazz Festival performance, not grandstand Arena Rock. It's a bit more subtle, and a whole lot more fun. The guys really sound like they're enjoying themselves; the music is sparkling and alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly Good 20 Mar 2007
Format:DVD
Coming out some 3 years after the tour, thought this would be some low budget package.

Essentially it is the whole 2003 tour concert from start to finish, nothing else added, no interviews, fancy graphics, back stage banta, just a good solid Yes show, shot in hi def, with the classic line up doing what they do best.

The liner notes indicate that Mr Howe felt this was one of their best performances and I have to agree all the band appear on form, playing to an appreciative, Montreux Jazz festival crowd. I tend to grade Yes DVD's by how Awaken comes across, and in this case its about the best I've seen/heard, hence a 5 star rating.

Overall, a solid selection of songs, new and old, including a suburb solo rendition of To Be Over, a rocking South Side of the Sky and In the Presence Of benefitting from Rick Wakemans keys.

A worthy addition to the catalogue of Yes concerts and the missing element of the Yes Speak DVD. A must have for all Yes fans and a welcome shot whilst the band are on hiatus

5.0 out of 5 stars ' Well crafted genius........ 22 May 2007
Format:DVD
A wonderful testament to how a band has evolved into an entity over the course of several decades producing the finest and most original music of it's type anywhere. Recorded on the ' Magnification' tour of 2003 at the Montreux Jazz Festival, this great band are at the absolute top of their game. One might argue that the choice of set list lacks ' Close to the Edge', 'Starship Trooper', 'Perpetual Change' and a few other gems( which are all well documented on other Yes concert dvd's anyhow) But the choice of tracks from the 'Magnification' album sit perfectly well among such established Yes classics as 'Siberian Khatru', 'And You And I', 'Roundabout', ' Heart of the Sunrise', and the welcome surprise addition to the set of ' South Side of the Sky'. The musicianship on display here is customarily faultless from all five members of the band with special mention due to Jon Anderson's unique vocal delivery. The man belies his advancing years and continues to nail the range every time. Lacking a little in the sonic department on this dvd, you really have to sit in front of this band to appreciate just how powerful they really are. However, this minor point does not detract from the fact that Yes have once again produced a work of well crafted genius and prove that, on this particular evening in Montreux, they have few, if any, peers...

5.0 out of 5 stars Total Perfection! 1 Mar 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Unlike the instantly forgettable "Songs from Tsongas" DVD, this recording shows what a great live band Yes are. The band's performance is exceptional (even by the group's normally high standards) and all of the guys look as if they are really enjoying themselves. Sonically the disk is perfect - certainly miles better than "Tsongas". The camera work and video editing is simple but incredibly effective and concentrates solely on the band's performance - no showy graphics or scene transition effects and it's all the better for it. The video quality is in HD and really showcases how good blu-ray can be when shot and mastered properly. Finally the play list - well it can't be complained about at all and it covers the band's extensive back-catalogue of music perfectly. Of all the Yes videos I've seen (some very good) this one is the best by a fair margin.

If you are only ever going to own one Yes DVD, then you could do a far worse than getting this one! I cannot recommend this DVD highly enough!

Update - just noticed that my review has found it's way onto a version of the DVD which seems to be standard definition (not Blu-Ray). Obviously this won't affect the band's performance, the great editing/camera work or the sound, but be aware that the video quality obviously won't quite reach the heights obtainable through HD. Still thoroughly recommend this DVD, though!
