YES, Yes, I know what many may think but this is nothing like 'Yes' and Benoit David's vocals are far removed from his performances with 'Yes'. There are times when he hits those high notes but by-and-large his vocals are very AOR. This compilation from 'Mystery' offers the songs from the three albums Benoit David appeared on, however, it is the tracks culled from the album 'One among the Living' (2010) which are most appealing as they include the likes of; John Jowitt, Richard Lanthier, Oliver Wakeman and Daryl Stuermer. The lead guitar of Michel St-Pere is superb throughout with some beautiful nods to Floyd, especially on 'Dear Someone' - on which Nick D'Virgilio drums. This is a great collection for the curious and perhaps a similar set from current vocalist Jean Pageau would be welcomed by those not wishing to attain their entire catalogue and compliment 'At the dawn of a new Milliennium' which features former vocalist Gary Savoie. Only gripe is the lack of a booklet although relevant information appears on the digi-pack.
