4 stars Easily one of the most enjoyable live albums in my collection for all the right reasons. This will remind Yes fans why they love this band!

This release shows Yes playing what are-- in my opinion-- some of the finest songs of this era in progressive rock (certainly in their own catalogue), with TREMENDOUS skill and energy; in some cases they surpass the dynamics and power of their studio counterparts!

There are tons of surprises and live gems here, like the symphonic introduction, new or extended solos, and slight alterations to the music which will leave Yes fans smiling. Howe's guitar will never sound finer, while Squire's savage, genre defining bass is an absolute joy. Everything sounds fresh and powerful, transporting the listener to the utmost realms of musical excellence with the best songs in the band's classic library.

The recording quality is admittedly poor, but it only rarely gets in the way from the force of nature that is Yes-- not to be missed!
