3 stars Fish released this first / second lap of a compilation work on the same day of 1995 (September, 4th). I wonder why he never publish this as a double CD release (which could have been cheaper.).

This one is first in the alphabet but second in the philosophical sense. Make up your mind.As far as I'm concerned, I preferred "Yin" by an inch (or some centimeters.). This is maybe a paradox since this leg features more genuine "Marillion" songs than "Yin".

And their re-work sounds quite interesting & different from the original ones. Especially "Sugar Mice" as well as "Punch & Judy" which might well be superior to the original.

What might not work as well as on "Yin", is the choice from his solo work. I am missing the great "Vigil" which is absent from both "Yin" & "Yang". A pity IMHHO. But compilations are a difficult exercise.

My rating for this work is going to end up with three stars (just as "Yin"), although I am more inclined for a five out of ten. Compared to seven out of ten for "Yin". I guess that you got the picture, right?
