Product description

Product description

Our product to treat is a regular product. There is not the imitation. From Japan by the surface mail because is sent out, take it until arrival as 7-14 day. Thank you for you seeing it.

Not so much In a Word but more of a long sentence (no penal pun intended, non-Yes fans), this generously expansive five-CD history of Yes box set--replete, of course, with Roger Dean designed sleeve and a chunky, glossy book crammed with photos, musings, biography, discography and all manner of other "-ographies"--is the final word (well, sentence) on the Yes saga thus far. Of course, it hasn't always been easy being a Yes fan--Jon Anderson's wispy voice and non-sensical lyrics, some regrettable spelling ("Wonderous Stories") and the odd duff record (1974's ridiculously indulgent Tales From Topographic Oceans was like listening to paint dry), coupled with the inescapable fact that prog-rock is no more fashionable than bingo, has meant that Yes remain a source of mirth in circles where blinding, classical-level instrumental virtuosity and 18-minute long songs aren't highly prized.

However, Yes are long overdue some even-handed revisionism and once you get beyond the band's earliest muddled jazz-rock West Coast harmony-coated Beatles-isms there are some magnificent instances of bold envelope-pushing genius ("Heart of the Sunrise" and "Starship Trooper" are both moments where brains, drama, technique and tunes triumph over bluff and bombast) as well as some perfectly crafted pop courtesy of "Time and a Word" and 1983's US number one "Owner of a Lonely Heart". Yes fans will doubtless be lured by six previously unreleased tracks, but seeing as four of these come from 1979's ruction-causing post-Tormato sessions in Paris, where both Rick Wakeman (bored) and Jon Anderson (sacked) both departed, these are hardly the highlights of this otherwise desirable package. In a Word is an attractive testimonial to one of Britain's truly unique musical enterprises. --Kevin Maidment
