4 stars Most of the songs on this CD have gotten a considerable amount of airplay on the radio, and some of those songs still do get played quite a bit. This is basically a Greatest Hits collection as opposed to a Best of collection. In my opinion, if you were to make a Yes best of Disc, It would be nothing but good quality live versions of their best epics (Close to the Edge, Awaken, Gates of Delerium, Ritual, Heart of the Sunrise). Those epics define what Yes was all about and the type of music they perfected. But along the way, they had some hits as well. And this album pretty much focuses on the more catchy and easily accessable songs throughout their career. Nearly every major release up to and including Big Generator is represented by a track or two, and they are usually songs (or sections of songs) that someone who knows little about Yes would find accessable on a first listen. It's an easily digestable sample of what Yes has had to offer over the years, and it does not fail to deliver.
