3 stars This the the compilation that really introduced me to Yes when I had just discovered progressive rock, and I can say I suppose it did it's job of introducing a young, open-minded and musically informed kid into a Yes fan. I wouldn't say it's my favorite compilation, but I mainly appreciate some songs from Close to the Edge on it (let alone half the album) as well as their more commercially appealing songs to sort of fish in someone who is used to more mainstream music. It is indeed one of the few compilations that actually prompted me to buy more of the bands albums. It is pretty accurate for representing the band's overall sound and the evolution in their music, as well as having some extra bonus material like New World Symphony. A good collection of a great band's music that I recommend for beginners of Yes and even progressive rock as I was when I received this.
