4 stars A good Yes show, but not so excellent. Actually, Yes shows from 2004 were much better, with the band more rehearsed and playing better and tighter. This concert begins very uninterestingly in my opinion, with a calm rendition of Siberian Khatru, where the band doesn't seem to be enjoying playing. But as the show continues, they get better. Highlights: In the Presence Of, one of the few good things Yes did recently. This song is really a new Yes classic. South Side of the Sky, which the band played in 2003 for th first time. However, this song, like others, would get better in 2004, especiallyh the jam in the end. The Fish is great! Chris and Alan show a perfect balance and groove. I love the way they play On the Silent Wings of Freedom. Awaken is another killer. By then, the whole band was already playing as usual, and they do a great job!

So this is a normal Yes show. Which means very good. But there are better ones out there (Keys to Ascension, Yesshows, Yessongs, Songs From Tsongas, and also bootlegs...)
