Finally Close to The Edge in 5.1. hands down flat the best sounding version of this album. Once again Steven Wilson does a perfect job with this remasters 5.1 mix. Distortion that was present on the two track master is almost completely gone. Separation between instruments is amazing for a record recorded in 71/72. When listening with a sub woofer the bas is clear but warm. Even with Chris Squire taking the low end off his bass it still sounds warm. Anderson vocals never sounded this clear.
Even if you are not a 5.1 person the stereo masters on here sound better then versions of the past.
If you are into music that is a bit more demanding check this out. It's a beautiful record that is from Progressive Rock's zenith.

I have been a huge YES fan since the early 70's and my introduction to the band was thru this album, I can still remember where and when and the total experience of my first time and the feeling of awe when i heard the overture. Steve Wilson's remix and re-mastering is amazing, i hear things in the recording that I never heard before... A few years ago my daughter suggested I give "Porcupine Tree" a listen to and I fell in love with their music... so I was very excited to hear that Steve (from PT) was in charge of this effort and supported by YES!... and I was not disappointed.

Format: Audio CD
Great works have a sense of inevitabilty about them - you can feel secure that you won't be let down when your enter their artistic space. Close to Edge is epitome of English Rock - call it prog or not, Yes created the finest work of music to come out of the rock movement. Thirty-some years ago when I first heard this album, I was captivated, and through the years, I've remained enthralled with this music, never growing tired of it, never becoming bored, even though I may have listened to CTTE over fifteen thousand times.
The reason this music holds up so well is that for a summer in 1972 Yes achieved a perfect confluence of talent, opportunity, and technique. Jon Anderson finally had the total vision he had strived for since starting the band: five of the best musicians in the rock world, tempered by touring and recording, and informed by all the influences each brought to the mix. Rick Wakeman was largely the movitativing force in the creation of the mature Yes sound, not because he was one of the two best keyboard players in England, but because he had an inborn feeling for structure, and what makes CTTE work, and keep on working is the stucture of the main piece and the two other pocket symphonies on the album.
Close to the Edge has been described as a Sonata, a musical form that introduces and then explores themes and variations, returning in the last movement to main theme. This structure gives the work a unity that eluded most of the other prog rock epics, including some of Yes's own.
Listening to Close to the Edge now, the craftsmanship is even more apparent to me than when I first heard it in 1972.

This is, hands down, the way ALL Audio by ALL Musicians should be released.
-need I say more ?

I'm at a loss for words here.
This super-HQ-audio production of Yes, is breathtaking, and at 24/192 Blu-ray audio resolution, you'll never want to buy a 16/44 crappy Audio CD again. -Lol.
...oh ya, and those original "Intrumental" seesions was a Bonus, treat, just to say the least.

Great Job done, to Steve Wilson,
and a very special thanks to the immortal "Yes" Musicians; Steve, Chris, Jon, Bill, and Alan, ...

Bought it mainly for the surround mix, great sound all around!!!!! Hope to see more releases like this. Even includes a high quality vinyl rip that also sounds good.

Wow..I'm a huge Yes fan and this album is a true classic as well as a classic Progressive album. This Steven Wilson 5.1 remix sounds awesome and has brought out a whole bunch of sounds I didn't hear before. This CD was a must have before and now with the remix and the bonus tracks, it should be in every Progressive fans collection.

Sound Quality was amazing for all versions of the album included with this release. Litterally something for everyone. New 2013 5.1 plus Surround plus stereo mixes and an Instrumental stereo version of the album all in 24/96 high resolution. The original untouched Master Stereo mix in 24/192 and even an original "U.K. Vinyl Transfer" of the album in 24/96. In addition there are additional alternate versions of various tracks in 24/96 and 24/192 (Different tracks) and an "Alternate Album" version in 24/96.

The only downside to this package as others have mentioned is the packaging itself. The gatefold package does not want to stay closed and the included booklet has no real home and so just sits loose and falls out easily. I was lucky in that I was careful in opening the cellophane sleeve and therefore I can re-use it to keep the package closed properly. But if you tear it then things will be falling out all over the place.

Still for the music quality and all the options available I don't think there is a better version of this album out there. I think even some of the Vinyl die-hards might move to digital with more releases like this!

Carl.
