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 excellent box set of yes albums 4 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Without a doubt this is an excellent box set of the main albums by the group YES.
It Includes the albums: 'Yes', 'Time and a Word', 'The Yes Album', 'Fragile', 'Close to the Edge', 'Tale from Topographic Oceans', 'Relayer', 'Going for the One', 'Tormato', 'Drama', '90125' and 'Big Generator'. These are remaster editions with bonus tracks.

If you have collected the Re master editions from 2003 already then this set offers nothing much new since these are those remasters from 2003 with the same bonus tracks except that they are in faithful mock vinyl sleeves and all contained in one box.
However if you only have some of the albums, or a mixture of original CD editions and re masters it may be worth changing to this set.

There are some disadvantages with this set though, First of all the faithful mock vinyl sleeves look just like the original vinyl release. The downside of that is that they do not list the bonus tracks on them (obviously if they are faithful to the original album covers) There isn't even a complete track listing on the outer box.
It would have been useful if there had been a booklet perhaps with information that covers the difficult to read small text on the original album covers (now shrunk down to CD size) and the additional bonus track information.
However the true track listing including the bonus tracks do appear on the CD discs themselves. (But obviously once you have put the disc in the player you cannot see it while you are playing it)
True the original main album tracks are the most important tracks and they have their listing on the original vinyl cover but surely it would be good to know what the other tracks are?

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice box set. Could be improved. 2 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a lovely box. Each album is in a facsimile of its original sleeve and each disc label is a facsimile of the original LP label.
Every disc includes the bonus tracks from the previous Rhino reissues of the albums.
What's missing is any track listing showing the bonus tracks. An additional booklet detailing these would be nice. Also, although the facsimile LP covers are spot on there are none of the booklets, lyric sheets, production credits included.
There us a nice poster of the art work on the box included and overall the box is attractive and well produced. The price is excellent and I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't already own these albums on CD already. For Yes completists (like me) it's worth having, although I would also recommend buying the Steven Wilson remix of Close To The Edge as it is absolutely stunning!
The only thing better than this would be a European release of the High Vibration SACD box at a sensible price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get This In Your Christmas Stocking 2 Dec 2013
By Cornish Deadhead TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Well, what can I say about this box, apart from saying it's marvellous!

The first 12 studio albums in reproduction original cardboard sleeves, just what I like, with bonus tracks to boot with a Roger Dean (fold out) poster. Many of these I still have on first issue vinyl, and from their beginning in 1969, with the album Yes, I knew they were going to be something different and a band to watch (just listen to how they do the Beatles Every Little Thing). The second album was more experimental, and for me better, but then came the Explosion of The Yes Album, followed by a string of amazing albums. I still prefer the earlier albums (up to Going For The One) to the later ones (with the exception of Drama), but all of these are worth having. The box is substantial measuring about 8.5cm (a little over 3") thick, but still saves on space compared to the awful plastic boxes. Bargains can be found for this box as I had mine delivered today, the day of release, for under thirty pounds!

For those of you wishing to replace vinyl, or get a library of this band in a single hit, then get this box. Even if you have purchased Original Album Series (5 Pack) like me, it is worth getting this set and selling the little box in my opinion. Take my advice and write a letter to Santa and have some great music to play on Christmas Day!

Nice box set of Yes. Twelve discs in replica card sleeves. If you know Yes a good package to update your collection. If you don't know yes this is the best set to start with.
