I just read from YesWorld.com that Yes are going to release the Union Tour DVD and CD. I'm really looking forward to that.

Maybe not the best album, maybe not the best performance...but it sure is cool to see high-quality clips of all these guys playing up on stage together. I may have to buy the DVD.

I still haven't even seen the Symphonic Live CD in stores, wonder if this one will ever make it to these parts.

Union keeps calling to me for some reason. I'll end up buying it one day, I'm sure.

As for the tour, well, everybody, even the band, loved it! So I can't wait. Clap

Although the album was not well received, the tour seems to have been a great success from both band and audience point of view. Looking forward to it.

I'll probably go for the DVD.  That tour was the last time I saw Yes live.  And since I had a crappy lawn seat for it, I'd love to see the performance up close.  Onion gets trashed more than it deserves.

The set list is great, let's hope the whole show will be included. (from www.forgottenyesterdays.com)

Firebird Suite [Intro]
Yours Is No Disgrace Smile
Rhythm Of Love Confused
Shock To The System Big smile
Heart Of The Sunrise Smile
Clap Sleepy
Make It Easy/Owner Of A Lonely Heart Big smile / Dead
And You And I Smile
Drum Duet Big smile
Changes Sleepy
I've Seen All Good People Sleepy
Solly's Beard Clap
Saving My Heart/Whitefish/Amazing Grace Clap
Lift Me Up Clap
Wakeman Solo Clap
Awaken Smile
Roundabout Smile

I too think that Union is underrated. In fact, I like it very much Shocked
It includes some of Trevor Rabin's best ever songs, in my opinion.

I'm thinking that overrated and underrated have been overused to the point of being meaningless. LOL
I much prefer under appreciated.

Yeah, 'underappreciated' is an underappreciated word! LOL

A word I will try to use more in reviews, thanks!

Union is, however, literally underrated, in my opinion.

Why would you put a yawning face next to the firebird suite? Is there rendition of it really that bad? (Never seen)

Well, Firebird Suite is not actually performed by the band but only played on the speakers as the band walk on stage. It is a Classical piece by Stravinsky (I think Embarrassed)

I should probably have left it without smiley altogether. It's a nice introduction.

I didn't say that I don't like it, but it really cannot be judged by the same criteria as Owner Of A Lonely Heart and the like Tongue

Besides, I think the most interesting songs on this DVD (for me) will be those I don't already have on other DVD's and live albums. That should explain why I am more happy with certain songs. The Stravinsky intro have been used for ages, but it is indeed a very nice introduction!

I still say ''Ecstasy of Gold'' is the best opening tape used for a rock concert (Metallica). Thumbs Up

From the clip i have seen, this DVD doesn't look better than the DVD done for TV from the same tour in 90's with a central stage.

OK, compromise then, underrated and under appreciated. LOL
Neither is it good nor bad, but to me more good than bad.
