4 stars Very little to say about this record. It is purely made of tracks from Keys To Ascension I. It only contains six live tracks (recorded at San Luis Obispo - California) and there are of course no reason to get this one instead of the full blown original double CD. Unless you can grab it for free, I can only recommend you to stick on Keys. The track listing of this selection and the rendering is gorgeous : it belongs to the best of the YesLive repertoire.

But, again, their commercial approach is very suspectful.Alas, they will go on like this for the years to come (till now). The title of this effort is quite misleading for the fan and it is only when you've listened to it that you figure out you've been fooled !

Four stars for the music (one star for their marketing strategy).
