3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult - maybe for dedicated aficionados?, 11 May 2011
This review is from: Union (Live) (MP3 Download)
I purchased the special CD/DVD set as I am a aficionado and love the twists and turns in the history of this legendary band.
This is the BIG Yes - Anderson, Howe, Squire, White and Wakeman with Trevor Rabin, Tony Kaye and the excellent Bill Bruford.
It's another "collection" but with a different edge as we have two drummers, two guitarists and two keyboard players. Just one bass and Mr Anderson's voice; although others obviously do BVox and occasional Rabin takes a lead.
It is quite a big sound and, in the main, it works. It gets a bit messy in places but they just about onto it.
I've not found easy to rate because being an aficionado, I acknowledge that some might find it all too much.
It was an interesting experiment but very short lived.
Of course you have many "classics" worked on here with a few extra throw in like Rabin's impressive guitar workout on "Solly's Beard"
It certainly is NOT a good 'start' to Yes but I would imagine this will be purchased by people like myself.
I think 3 stars is balanced as the performances vary.
It's a tough one this because virtually all of it has been heard before - many times!!!! It's Yes - again!
You pays yer money . . . . . . ?
