4 stars Their best live act on stage, witnessing both the "golden period" regarding "Chronometree" and "Lex Rex" (above all this latter for its importance as a personal "emulation of their own" concerning the music of ELP and Yes)- which is well worth checking out after all!! Certainly We are just a little bit disappointed after the controversial album "Three Cheers For The Broken-Hearted", whose music and ensemble as well (apart from the good vocalist Susan) could be their definitive choice for the future and I don't know whether it's satisfying or less, talking about the preferences of the old fans...well I hope that They will be able to produce such a good stuff like that unique of the early period (even though you could prefer the old stuff live by the original Yes, but nevermind...). However the present performance within an interesting DVD such as "Lex Live", is an important example of their skill live. Unfortunately their technique has been forgotten in the recent times, but probably the new ensemble of G.H. is looking for a personal music path and a new place too, within the modern progressive world (for me too it's the same, cause I know- as a musician and symphonic composer- how difficult it is, nowadays!!)...

Moreover I like to make a special mention both for the beautiful album cover and the good video and sound master as well...anyway, perhaps the new ensemble will decide to come back to their roots and the present "Lex Live" won't be an episode apart concerning their career! So you can buy it, at the end!
