4 stars Jon Anderson - Tour Of The Universe DVD

Review by ProgKidJoel

Jon Anderson is easily my favourite recording artist of all time, with or without Yes. Brilliant vocals, masterful songwriting and fantastic live presence contribute massively to this. This DVD, however, really does not show what Jon can pull of in a live setting. The entire DVD is made up of acoustic renditions performed solely by Jon, and more than often accompanied by (lame) CGI and 3D live projections.

The performance on this DVD is sufficient for one man, but this doesn't really do alot of these songs justice, for example, The Revealing Science Of God. Jon also has a mishap with the vocal section of this track, but the song loses nearly all of its feel due to the staleness of one guitar and one voice playing it alone.

Sonically, this DVD is quite good. Aurally, this is near perfect, but visually, its hampered by the use of the 3D projections. Example: Jon Anderson projected onto a billboard in a CGI city is alot less enticing or thrilling than seeing the man live on a real stage in a real performance setting. Other than this, I have few complaints, and its fantastic to see many Jon Anderson solo tracks played along side those which are considered to be the most controversial Yes songs.

A great DVD, but hampered by its single instrumentation and cheesy editing.
