1 stars Borrowed this DVD from a friend. I haven't heard of 9012 yet, but Owner of A Lonely Heart. Just came home, and sit to watch the show. Lots of poor effects, they tried to use the Cinema theme as a concept. And it doesn't work right. Trevor's costume is the less ridiculous one, and that's a good point for his score, because this guy is actually underrated. Here I could see, he's not bad, he has the personality and he is the writer of the outstanding riff hit of the album, but his style isn't Yes style. And a different personality together with the lack of a keyboardist personality (Tony Kaye, please...) Yes went to another style.

About the DVD performance, it's bad. They played well, but the lack of enthusiasm and excitement by the members annoys me. They seem to be faking excitement. Too forced. I don't like the 9012 music, as you could read at my review for the album. The last track, Starship Trooper, sounds very different here, so-so. The Roundabout performance at the DVD extras was my last hope. And damn again, they ruined the song!

Not for me.
