5 stars This show is one of my favorites of all time and next to "90125"and his live version was my gateway to the Yes-when I saw it was on VHS!

Wonder's "Close to the Edge" (but is actually orchestrated the opening track "Give Love Each Day"from the album "Magnification") until the final happy with "Roundabout", there is a moment where I let me down. Everything about "Symphonic Live" is perfect.The band combine songs from her latest album "Magnification" with the old repertoire.The best moments are definitely in the three central epic "CTTE", "The Gates of Delirium" and "Ritual"(the furious percussion section is fantastic!). The orchestra is nothing short of amazing, it really gives the songs a special character, even in "Owner of a Lonely Heart, " which could not be left out, though Howe still hate it the guitar solo is played on keyboard by guest keyboardist Tony Brislin.

This is perhaps the best live recording of Yes.5 stars!
