2 stars Next to the mighty Yes Symphonic Live DVD (one of my favourite things in all existence) this ranks as possibly one the lowest. I have to admit I had all too high expectations for the Blue Ray with a new cleaned up print and new mix. Still sounds as muddy as ever though and it looks and feels as if it was filmed in a dungeon. What particularly annoys me though is that you can't even get the picture to stretch across the screen. Just spent about and hour on this futile exercise but no luck. I own 100's of DVD's and have never had this problem. There are extras on the DVD that may be interesting but quite frankly I've lost the will to live and can't be bothered to even view them. This is nailed on 2 star material if either there was. It might be forgiveable as a concert of historical interest if Bruford was here but he isn't. If you want to splash out on a Blu Ray of Yes please get Yes Symphonic Live as that is the dog's cahonas.
