5.0 out of 5 stars I Would Have Waited Forever June 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
Music is such a personal thing to many of us, and we can be very critical of our favorite groups. In this case the CD cover states that the CD "features" the talents of eight members of yes. The reality is that not all eight members are very prominent and they do not all appear simultaneously. So the statement that the album "features" the talents of Jon Anderson, Bill Bruford, Steve Howe, Tony Kay, Trevor Rabin, Chris Squire, Rick Wakeman and Alan White is misleading because some of these artists make what I would consider guest appearances on this CD rather than being "featured." Okay, now that I have established the reason for all the criticism and have talked about it, let's talk about the music.
This music is the kind of complex, interesting music that Yes has been known for making. While I have a lot of Yes's music from many different eras, the consistency is bumpy and the amount of creativity varies substantially. However, when it all comes together the results are excellent.
This CD opens with two rockers, "I Would Have Waited Forever" and "Shock to the System," that have a flavor of the over-the-top music of "90125." The music is enthusiastic and up-beat and well harmonized. There may be a touch of bombast in these two songs, but these two songs are exceeded in the bombast department by the fourth track, "Lift Me Up," and the seventh track, "Miracle of Life." I enjoy all four of these songs with my favorite being "Lift Me Up," which is the most bombastic song on this CD.
"Masquerade," the third track, is a Steve Howe acoustic guitar solo that is beautiful, and it is too short. You may make an argument that Steve Howe could have developed the piece further, but at what point has a theme been exploited without being overlong?

4.0 out of 5 stars The most balenced YES Nov. 25 2006
Format:Audio CD
In my humble and spiritual opinion this disc has something for everyone from those who dug the earlier more complex and "not easy listening - lot's of airplay" YES became classic for and began a whole genre of art rock to deep profound and quite listenable melodies.

I agree with some of the criticism about the fact that they really did not play together as a "union" persay but then I am actually hoping it get's remastered and re-released with a few bonus songs that never made the original album - yes vinyl was still quite happening back then.

I would buy the new remastered version in a heartbeat.

I actually wish they would remaster in 24bit their whole catalog!

Let's say YES to that! Perhaps something we can all agree on?

ps....is it just me or is Big Generator VERY quiet disc that REALLY needs some remastering?

JUST SAY - YES!

One of the most underated and important artistic rock bands to come from England.

3.0 out of 5 stars mashed potato's!! June 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
This disc came about because Arista Records would not release the 2nd ABWH disc, tenatively titled "Dialouge" due to the weak material. Seeing this to be a problem, Jon Anderson talked Trevor Rabin and the rest of the 90125 line-up (White, Kaye, Squire) into contributing to the disc. The result was four really good songs; "Lift me up", "Saving my Heart", "Miracle of Life", and "The More we Live" (all by the 90125 line-up), and a bunch of crap from the ABWH line up. The disc sold well, over a couple of million world wide, but it was soley due to the 90125 line up songs which are as good as anything YES has ever done; in my book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry but even the members of Yes hate this CD!
I have been a Yes fan since I started high school in 1981 and I have seen Yes on countless tours. Including this one. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Underrated
An underrated album that fuses together both Yes incarnations in what is perhaps a "scrapbook" of songs composed by the two outfits. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Yes album! Got to have it!
OK people, it doesn't reach the level of musicianship and songwriting as Close to the Edge, Fragile, Relayer or Tales. But this is still one of the best Yes albums I've heard. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Steve Howe isn't on this Recording! 10 mins maybe!
I have listened to Yes for years. The reason why I bought this CD is because I thought Steve Howe was on it. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars The last great album for Yes
Although some Yes fans do not like anything the band did after the 70s were ending, I think this is quite a record. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Old Yes vs. New Yes: Old Yes wins 3 to 1
This is not a reunion album or an melding of the Yes factions. It is an album featuring songs from two separate groups, Old (Classic) Yes and New Yes. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, if minimalistic
This album has been with me since my later childhood, which goes to say I'm not as old as most Yes fans I know. Read more
