3 stars This is a good live release from Yes, but not their greatest by far. The performance here is good, nothing special, kind of sounds like they are going through the motions, so I don't get as excited to play this one. Another thing to consider is the sound quality. Though it is much better than Yessongs, the 1973 release, it still has glarring problems that you cannot avoid while listening. First and foremost, where are the keyboards? No one can hear them, becuase the guitar, bass, and drums really block them out. The vocals sounds very nice on this record though, I will admit that Jon had some good nights. These songs where taken from the Relayer tour and the Going for the One tour, which means that you not only get Rick Wakeman on some of the songs, but you also get Patrick Moraz. It's kind of cool to compare and contrast their playing styles and different equipment, but they both are amazing and influential rock keyboardists, too bad you can't hear them. Anyways, I think it's good but you really don't need to get it. Only a 3 stars from me.
