3 stars This compilation double CD captures YES tracks from two studio albums: "Open Your Eyes" and "The Ladder" plus some cuts from "House of Blues" live album. If you have all the three albums, purchasing this CD is a waste of money. The reason I purchased it because at that time of purchase I did not have the "House of Blues" live album. And you know why I wanted this live album? Because I was so curious wanting to hear how the Russian "Igor Koroshev" plays his keyboard replacing Rick Wakeman's place, especially in "Awaken". He does a great job here.

The CD package design is lousy, I would say. However the liner notes that contain a brief story of the band during Sherwood and Koroshev era plus some elaboration on the return of Rick Wakeman and a bit story about legendary producer Bruce Fairbairn are good and informative. The photograph at the back of the liner notes seems inconsistent with the line- up featured in the CD as it shows the Trevor Rabin and Tony Kaye era (90125, Talk, Big Generator). Really misleading Yes newbie. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
