3 stars I don't know where you are standing in terms of Yes. If you think this is your prog hero, this DVD must be a MUST for you as it tells a lot of stories about the band and its classic line up. As this is one f my prog heroes, I consider owning this DVD is a must. Because the focus of this DVD is on the SPEAK therefore you should not be surprised that this DVD comprises a series of "let me tell you my story" kind of thing. For me personally, this is a very enjoyable DVD set. I can see clearly the story behind YES. The DVD contains 10 chapters that build into the history of Yes Past and Present.

I would have expected this DVD should cover all members who contributed to Yes until today and not just focusing on Jon Anderson, Alan White, Rick Wakeman, Chris Squire, Steve Howe. What about Peter Banks who initiated band name as YES? What about Bill Bruford - the drummer who has a very unique tom and snare sounds? What about Trevor Rabin and Trevor Horn who replaced Jon Anderson during Drama? Why Tony Kaye leaving the band? What about Patric Moraz who contributed to the making of Yes the most magnificent track ever: "The Gates of Delirium"?

Then it's okay as the Director has decided not to include the other line-up. I enjoy watching this DVD as in every "speak" there must be YES in concet as background featuring all repertoires of their past until present like "Siberian Khatru", "Magnification", "Don't Kill The Whale", "Southside of The Sky". I enjoy the part when each member of the line-up was interviewed under the "Sacred Ground" and "Full Circle".

Overall, this is a MUST for YES fans.
