5 stars I was so extremely lucky to be able to watch Yes in Oslo this year. I have always liked Yes and I think they have had some great albums. But it wasn't before that show I realized how good they really are and what masterpieces of music they have made. The Close to the edge album which I bought on vinyl in 1972 and played a lot at that time and also have played many times since. The way they lived the music and delivered it to us was just unbelievable. They played And You and I in a way it went straight to my heart and their music just kept on coming. They played for 2,5 hours when I suddenly realized it was all over. I had been to one of the best concerts in my life. They played the whole Close to The Edge album and the Peak of the concert was when they played And You And I. That track has everything. It starts out with this slow guitar solo by Steve Howe and it slowly builds up to the fantastic crescendo in the end. The Close To The Edge album is a masterpiece and will stand there for all time.
