Prog Reviewer
4 stars People have criticised this for not telling them anything new - the documentary is informative and detailed and it isn't the creator's fault if someone is already a Yes expert (yexpert?)...

There are lotsa relevant people interviewed here, of which Peter Banks is perhaps the most interesting; he was the first person to be kicked out of Yes and his side of the story is worth hearing. Some people are missing (Tony Kaye, Brian Lane, Igor and Billy, and Trevor Rabin (though I am happy to not hear his arrogant voice)). But the whole spectrum of time is covered and so is all the controversy over this incredible band.

If one is a Yexpert, there are still some interesting stories in the extra features, including Wakeman's devotion to David Bowie's studio ethics, Anderson's inability to listen to Tales from Topographic Oceans, and Peter Banks' Union tour anecdote which almost resulted in a broken nose for Steve Howe!
