3 stars It's a good thing that Yes had many line-up changes in their career, that's maybe why they still play live after 50 years. They have a large directory of musicians to choose from each time someone left the band, And not only that, I don't know how many times Rick Wakeman, Trevor Rabin, and Jon Anderson left the band and come back. It's like a broken family that still have some love for each other despite many conflicts... Let's get to the main dish: Yes "Live At the Apollo"(Blu-Ray) It's no surprise that with Trevor Rabin on guitar we have some songs from his past experience with the band: "Changes", "Hold On", etc., and the miserable "Rhythm of Love". I am glad that they did "Lift Me Up" from the badly criticise "Union" album. And we have the classic songs of 8 minutes plus including "Awaken" with a new intro thanks to Rabin and the new drummer Louis Molino III. It's also the return of Rick Wakeman who have a bigger symphonic style then Downes who has toured with Yes recently.

The picture is sharp and the audio nice, except that they put more work into adding fake audience noise instead of doing a proper surround mix. Lee Pomeroy is on bass, he's been with Steve Hackett. He has the task to play a short version of "The Fish", and he succeeds nicely. We have a 2 hours show (30 minutes more than previous live releases) with no extra. For those fans who can't get enough Yes. I am still waiting for some great new fresh album, which probably will never materialize.

4 stars This album is pretty much what I thought it would be. As mostly Yes's popular 80s and some 70s tracks (and "Life Me Up" from 1991's "Union"), it's a great summary of 50 years of spectacular music. While 70s yes is my favorite period for ANY band in ANY genre, this album gave me an appreciation f ... (read more)

5 stars Yes has never sounded and looked better on digital format. Who would have imagined that after about fifteen years later since Anderson last time appeared on Yes dvd live at Tsongas, he would do miracle and give perfect sounding vocals for live in Apollo blu-ray. I think it's amazing. This is an amaz ... (read more)

2 stars I was literally thrilled by the fact I'll be seeing Yes with Jon Anderson once again on a glorious blu ray format, even though there are, sadly, two Yeses at the moment; Chris was gone and Steve Howe is playing with a guy who, to be honest, is a good singer, but totally desecrates the spirit of ...
