4 stars I bought this in a package that was YesAcoustic/YesSpeak sort of a double feature and found that the YesSpeak portion was worth a watch or two and the YesAcoustic was worth many watches! I particularly love that Steve Howe's guitar style is conducive to acoustic leads and is not hindered by the small scale and tone of the guitar. He shows intense skill in this performance. Jon Anderson...though slightly trite, sings incredibly well for his age. Chris Squire does a good job on his fretless bass and sings reasonably well. Wakeman blows us away with utterly tasteful piano playing! And then theres Alan who shows he is a very good player with brushes.

What is odd is that Long Distance Runaround is even better here live - it flows better - than on the original Fragile record. Alan White chooses the ride with his brushes on the Did we really tell lies or whatever it is section. This would be the only place where I've heard White improve on a Bruford part.

Great dvd and thoroughly enjoyable.
