2 stars I find this to be a very frustrating DVD. Whilst I was perfectly aware through the title that this would mainly be a documentary, I was greatly attracted by the monumental set listing advertised on the cover.

This is not a concert DVD, although the viewer will hear segments of some Yes numbers in the background, and then occasionally a minute or two of an actual concert will appear on screen. It was this that I found to be extremely annoying. Just as I'm really getting into a live track, BANG, off goes the picture and the interview, with say Alan White is back on. This could have been so much better had they played FULL tracks, interspersed with the interviews. Whilst excerpts of some pieces are really short, fortunately, quite a lot of the live performance of Awaken, my favourite Yes track, is included!

As to the actual interviews, each member of the classic line-up is interviewed at length by Roger Daltrey, who does a decent job as interviewer. The actual content is interesting, but once you've seen this once it will be some time before you feel the need to see it again.

For the keen Yes fan, this is well worth having, especially if you get it cheap like me!! For anybody else, I could not really recommend it.

This deserves 2.5 stars, however I will have to round this down to 2 stars. It is a shame, as this DVD could have been so much better.
