2 stars My comments about this YANG CD is similar with those in YIN CD that Fish should not ever play any song from Marillion with his band. The soul is not there. I know that Frank Usher and Robin Boult are good guitar players and also Mickey Simmonds and Foss Paterson are also good keyboard players. But, Marillion's songs are unique and should be performed by Marillion (Fish era) - otherwise, it's uglier than the original version. This happents to "Lavender", "Kayleigh", "Sugar Mice" and "Punch & Judy" in this compilation. I am a bit disappointed that great tracks like "Cliché" and "Shadowplay" are not included either in YIN or YANG CD so I conclude that these two CDs are not good introduction of Fish music to newbie. The only good tracks here in this YANG CD are "Lady Let It Lie" (third track) and "A Gentleman's Excuse Me". The rest of the tracks are pointless and should not be purchased, unless you are curious. As for my case, I have been a fan of Marillion Fish era so I tried my best to collect all albums of Fish even though this one is very disappointing record. Well, at least I have it on my CD shelf and I never play this CD - it's just for this review and also for collection only - not to be played. Keep on proggin' ..!
