Movie Reviews

2 Yesshows for the price of 1
Yesfan | USA | 08/18/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There are two complete yesshows in this 2dvd set. Both concerts were taken from Yes' 2003 European tour. The first of the two shows was recorded in Birmingham UK and is mixed with mini interviews of the band and the second is an outdoor show from the Glastonbury Festival. Excellent concerts of progressive rock from the classic lineup of Yes - Jon Anderson, Steve Howe, Chris Squire, Alan White & Rick Wakeman. If you like Yes you'll love these dvds.

The Setlist:

01) Siberian Khatru
02) Magnification
03) Don't Kill The Whale
04) In The Presence Of
05) We Have Heaven
06) South Side Of The Sky
07) And You And I
08) To Be Over
09) Clap
10) Show Me
11) Wakeman Solo
12) Heart Of The Sunrise
13) Long Distance Runaround

This is "Yes" !

"This is "thee" group.

Sure I like the glossed DVD's that are out now with little or no imperfections, everything cleaned up, or dubbed over, or added to, for that better than "real" life DVD experience....Who doesn't.

This is not a bad recording by any any means. This is a great recording. This is exactly how they would sound if you went to see them live....and that ain't bad. The 35th Anniversary Tour was too slick (but great!) Live at Montreux was "Perfect". This is..."Real" A must add to the YES collection. This is in the spirit of "Yessongs", the record....not the video, but a better recording.

What more do you want! How many DVD's of this line up are there."

"First of all, let it be known: Steve Howe is ON FIRE here. He deftly moves from one guitar to the next and nails his famous solos (nearly) flawlessly, all while attending to the audience and genuinely appearing to enjoy himself.

Other positives from this DVD:
Great performances - these guys may be starting to look their age, but they still rock hard in their inimitable Yes style.
Some different songs that you don't typically hear, and almost all are different ones than appeared on their "Songs From Tsongas" dvd from the same 35th anniversary tour.
Interesting stories, backstage footage and snippets of info from the individual band members between the songs.
Disc 2 begins with the best version of "Awaken" I've ever seen or heard. It is special.
Great camera work and professionally done - we get close-ups of the performers from all different angles, and just enough of the audience to make you feel like you have a seat at the show.
Rick Wakeman's bank of keyboards has gotten even bigger... (Is that possible?)

A few negatives:
Audio was slightly out-of-sync in some spots, especially on disc 1. That's an annoyance.
Drums were mixed very low at the start of the first concert.
Sometimes the volume seems to dampen or compress a bit in spots.

The second disc contains the final 3 songs from the indoor show featured on the first disc, then segues into an outdoor show that has virtually the same song lineup in the exact same order. I enjoyed this show all the same, as I've never seen them perform outdoors before. For that show, the camera angles are much more limited, there are a few distractions on stage with roadies moving and checking equipment, and there is some unknown (pretty) woman sitting behind Steve Howe and enjoying the music - another distraction for some of us... (The annoying audience member who insisted on waving his Pink Floyd flag through parts of the show was also a slight negative.)

But overall, you get great performances, excellent sound in most places (but certainly not perfect), and just an enjoyable couple of shows for the Yes fan. (...and aren't we all? ;-)
