Like being asked to choose between different types of excrement.

I haven't heard the live albums, so can't comment on those, but Heaven and Earth is dreadful, and Fly from Here is not much better.

NO VOTE
Songs cast a light on you

Well, at least one person voted for Fly from Here, although they remain nameless so far. Smile

^ well,there are some that enjoy Fly From Here. I gave the album another chance a little while ago after someone sang its praises here, thought I might be missing something, but no, I was bored out of my mind.

Yes, you ARE missing out on something, because Fly from Here soars to new heights of excellence, but don't bother with Fly from Here: Return Trip because it's a 2-star dud and doesn't deserve to even get off the ground. A pointless remake which is definitely an album for collectors only, although that's a purely subjective opinion of course. Smile

Like I said (have you paid attention?), I found the album rather boring, wasted time I'm afraid.

The only one I find somewhat appealing is Live at the Apollo, but is not one of my favorite Yes albums either.

Hang on, I thought H&E was a 5-star album?

I don't really bother with many live Yes albums - there are too many - however I do like the original Fly From Here album. I know some don't but I feel it's their best album after The Ladder. Haven't bothered to listen to the remake.

Wise decision. The pointless remake of Fly from Here is really not worth listening to. Smile

I'm just waiting now for the late votes to flood in for The Quest, but I have a feeling I might have a long wait. Tongue

Fly from here---I like both versions---although I think Benoit is a better singer.


For me Yes lost it a long time ago once the classic line-up disbanded---but got to give credit to a classic lineup that really made an amazing album true to their sound and quality--after 40 years! ABBA!

(if you're into that sort of thingLOL)

Fly From Here is exactly the time when  Yes should have flown away and never come back IMHO
