4 stars Do you like "live" albums? I do, in fact I love to listen live albums. I know that some parts are rerecorded in studio, I know that are some remixing, but I still think that live albums are the closest thing to an actual concert to most fans (I do not believe that I will have a chance to see Yes in concert in a city near of mine, by the way). That said, I must recognize that "House of Yes" is a terrific live album: great song selection (I would delete only "Lightning Strikes", but since it's here, I can always program my CD player), an energetic and inspired performance, and a fantastic sound. Besides, there's a little surprise at the end of "Roundabout": a short blues section. I never thought that I would hear Yes bluesing, and this few seconds are worth the price of the album. If you have other live Yes albums, you can buy this one without regrets; if you don't, buy "Yessongs" and "Yesshows" first - then you can grab your copy of "House of Yes".
