This doco falls so far short of what it could have been. If this is the 35th anniversary celebration, why not talk to Peter Banks, Bruford, Kaye or Rabin? Why just focus on current members and one tour? The narrative by Roger Daltry so "Wow! Can you believe it? Whoo hoo!" that only fans will connect with it. A non fan will probably be left checking his or her watch, especially when they are left with hours of talking heads from old guys who seem very boring and uninspiring when they are not on stage.

Yes, they are candid. Yes, they form the greatest band ever, but does this doco reveal anything that a Yesfan doesn't already know, or anything a non-fan will care to hear? OK, Rick thinks Trevor Horn is the greatest producer ever; Jon clearly sings the line "Cos HIS time is time in time with your time..." But in all, the interviews are tiresome and uninspired. Ask yourself the question: "After watching it once, will you ever put it on again?" If not, why bother? The biggest let down of all, of course, is the audio only concert. Please - a 2 DVD set, and no filming of the concert? Even the audio is not worth it, since the concert has been chopped down into a series of songs, with no continuity at all, so it just feels like a session, not a concert with an audience being connected with at all. I was so disappointed, since I had seen this tour in Sydney, and would have loved to have the concert in full.

Yes fans like me will buy this, watch it once, and then file it away just so they can say they have it. No one else will bother, and they'll have made the right decision. If you want to SEE Yes, buy Yes Symphonic Live (and even then, throw out disc 2). It is an infinitely more worthy offering for 1 reason: They filmed a concert and put it on a DVD. Let the music tell the story, that's how Yesmusic should be.
