After the delusion for the latest SACD version finally a beautiful and (maybe) definitive version of YES masterpiece.
The remastering is signed by the "Master" Steven Wilson, a specialist of prog remastering (King Crimson, EL&P, Jethro Tull, Hawkwind).
The album is available in two version: CD + DVD Audio or CD + Bluray Audio.
I don't understand why but the two versions have a different package, the first with DVD Audio is similar at King Crimson 40th remasters in a double digipack, the second with Bluray Audio is a beautiful Mini LP replica like Japan editions.

These are the audio options of Bluray Edition:

Disc 1:
audio CD 2013 stereo remix by Steven Wilson

Disc 2 - Bluray audio:
2013 Stereo mixes 24/96 LPCM by Steven Wilson
Original Stereo Mixes 24/192 LPCM from 1972 original master
2013 Surround mixes 5.1 24/96 LPCM e 24/96 DTS HD Master Audio by Steven Wilson
bonus track: "America" with the same audio options
Additional material:
Alternate Album (a different album mix) 24/96 LPCM
Single versions & Edits 24/96 LPCM
Bluray exclusive: 2013 Stereo instrumental mixes 24/96 LPCM (The album instrumental!)
UK vinyl transfer 24/96 LPCM

The DVD Audio contains 2013 Stereo mixes 24/96 loosless by Steven Wilson
Original Stereo Mixes 96/24 loosless from 1972 original master
2013 Surround mixes 5.1 24/96 DTS 96/24

The sound is amazing in all options. I think is very pesonal to define wich is the best... I love DTS-HD 5.1 but the Steven Wilson stereo 192/24 is astonishing.
I also think that is a great experience in sound the loosless 5.1 track on DVD Audio, warm and natural.

Close To The Edge is a favourite of mine in the large catalogue of albums from the band Yes.
What I have always liked about Close To The Edge is the busy drumming by Bill Bruford and the beautiful singing from Jon Anderson, especially during the section of " I Get Up, I Get Down"
It has been an album I have played often over the past 3 or 4 decades.
This 2013 BluRay and CD edition is apparently the first of a series of Yes re-mixes that Steven Wilson has done.
After playing the 5.1 mix I was not completely blown away as i was expecting, the songs sound very different and have a different feel with the vocals and instrumentation spread out over 4 or 5 speakers rather than 2.
Over the past few years I have experienced many great 5.1 mix music and have loved them. This is a great mix in 5.1 but maybe because I am so used to the stereo mix I am finding it hard to appreciate it as much as usual.

What really did impress me this time is the Flat Transfer of the original mix in stereo. It sounds incredible !
The Wilson stereo mix is also great but I am very attached to the original stereo mix in a higher resolution.

The original mix was a testament to the original producers and still holds a lot of power and respect to me on this occasion. I am certain that later albums will be improved by Steven Wilson far more than this album has, Relayer has suffered from poor sound and will benefit from a remix.

I hope the title of this review helps you navigate your way around Amazons decision to merge all reviews across all formats across all ages of this title. Thus making it very difficult for anyone to locate reviews of these 2013 reissues without wading through a sea of historic opinion.
Anyway onto the product, if your specifically targeting this version of Close to the edge then you will almost certainly know the music, what you will want to know is whether or not to reinvest your hard earned money in yet another version of this Classic album.
What I like about this cd/dvd reissue is that it compliments perfectly the king crimson double packs ,with the slip case / double disc gatefold inner cover / 1 x cd & 1 x dvd disc / cd inlay size booklet . (Another reviewer has pointed out that the Blu ray packaging is more of a lp sleeve style cd digi pack.)
The Booklet is superb and contains a very detailed essay by Sid Smith who was also resposible for the essays in the King Crimson re-issues. You also get the famous Roger dean painting across the middle pages and a replication of the albums green background lyric inner sleeve.
As to the Steven Wilson remaster - I really liked the Yes 2003 remasters and by comparison this is slightly warmer and more organic but I think the differances are subtle - Do not buy this expecting some sonic revolution, unlike some of the titles Mr Wilson has worked on, the Yes catalogue does not have a legacy of mastering issues to reinvent. Close to the edge in my opinion has always sounded great.

*** November 2013 'Definitive Edition' Steve Wilson Remasters - CD+DVD-A and CD+BLU RAY Issues ***

It's April 2017 and I'm currently pouring over a rather cool paperback called "Close To The Edge - How Yes's Masterpiece Defined Prog Rock" by author and uber-fan WILL ROMANO. Published by Backbeat Books in early March 2017 (only weeks ago) - across its 304 oversized pages the acclaimed New Yorker and Music Journalist puts up a strong case for "Close To The Edge" being 'the' greatest album of the Prog Genre. I don't know about that personally - how about Genesis and the magnificent "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" double on Charisma in late 1974 or the single LPs "Todd Rundgren's Utopia" on Bearsville (again late 1974) or even Jon Anderson's own solo debut "Olias Of Sunhillow" in July 1976 (and so on)?

You could argue of course what's toppermost of the Proggermost until the Topographic Oceans come home - but what isn't deniable is that the three tracks on this one YES album from September 1972 have spawned four and a half decades of devotion, endless critique and even awe amidst those who rather get a rash on their favourite appendage than listen to Progressive Rock. The multiple layered parts of Yes's "Close To The Edge" has had legs and for many is a pinnacle of many musical sorts. But which issue of CTTE do you buy? I want to concentrate on that...
