YES Close To The Edge CD & BLU-RAY

Rhino's remastering sounds great on this record.
-
Close to the Edge is basic YES, And You and I is a soft love song, while Siberian Khatru is YES rocking out.

Amazon must have attributed all of the reviews from other remasters to this version. This accounts for the misinformation regarding which remaster this is by some reviews. Here is the real product description as this is a brand new 5.1 mix by Steven Wilson:

A new edition of the progressive rock masterpiece from 1972, the first in a series of Yes albums to get the deluxe remix treatment. Featuring new stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes by Steven Wilson from the original multitrack reels, and transferred flat at 96K/24 bit. Also included are a flat transfer of the original stereo mix, instrumental mixes, and other bonus material.

Presented in a mini vinyl replica gatefold card sleeve with booklet featuring new sleeve notes by Sid Smith, along with rare photos and archive material, the album has been mixed for 5.1 Surround Sound from the original studio masters by Steven Wilson and is fully approved by Yes.

The CD features a new stereo album mix, plus a new mix of America and an early mix of Close to the Edge.

Contains original artwork by Roger Dean who has overseen the artwork for this new edition.

The Blu-Ray features:

- 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio Surround (24bit/96khz) mixed from the original multi-channel recordings.
- the new stereo album mix in DTS-HD Master Audio (24bit/96khz).
- the original album mix and America in a DTS-HD Master Audio flat transfers from the original master tape source. (24bit/192khz)
- exclusive instrumental versions of all new mixes in DTS-HD Master Audio stereo (24bit/96khz).
- exclusive needle-drop of an original UK vinyl A1/B1 pressing transferred in 24bit/96khz audio.
- numerous audio extras appear in high-resolution stereo including single edits & studio run throughs of album tracks

I don't think that enough good things can be said about this 1972 album, which many feel was (and is) the definitive Yes album. In fact, Bill Bruford also felt this way and left Yes after Close to the Edge to join the ranks of King Crimson. He was quoted as saying that the band would never top the perfection of Close to the Edge. As a huge Yes fan (they are my favorite prog act), I personally feel that this album is simply superb. Although subsequent albums would also feature greatness, Close to the Edge works incredibly well as a complete work that fuses album cover art, music, and lyrics together in one seamless totality.

The group members at this point include the classic lineup of Chris Squire (bass, vocals); Rick Wakeman (mellotron, moog, Hammond organ, piano); Steve Howe (electric, acoustic guitars); Bill Bruford (drums and percussion); and Jon Anderson (vocals). I should also note that Eddy Offord (as the producer) was also considered to be part of the band and in fact appears on the back cover as a "sixth" member. I think it goes without saying that all of the musicians in Yes were positively top shelf and were true virtuosos. The individual and group ensemble work on close to the Edge is breathtakingly complex and the arrangements are incredible - everything flows from one piece to the next seamlessly.

The magnum opus Close to the Edge (18:50) is a fantastic composition that more or less follows a sonata form. This is an incredible piece of music and an excellent structural analysis of Close to the Edge is provided by Edward Macan in his book Rocking the Classics: English Progressive Rock and the Counterculture (1997).

Remastered for the second time, Yes's 1972 masterpiece album "Close To The Edge" contains four bonus tracks "America" (Single Version), "Total Mass Retain" (Single Version), "And You And I" (Alternate Version), and "Siberia" (Studio Run-Through Of "Siberian Khatru"). The epic song "Close To The Edge" running at just under nineteen minutes, is a complicated weaving of instruments, notably Steve Howe's unique and superb guitar playing, Chris Squire's solid bass playing, and Rick Wakeman's fabulous keyboards. The song has alot of changes throughout and twists and turns and hint at what to expect from The Yes's next album "Tales Of Topographic Oceans". The lengthy "And You And I" is an acoustic and electric guitar based song and again like the song "Close To The Edge" has many change ups and highlights Wakeman's synthesizers & keyboards. "Siberian Khatru" is my personal favorite with excellent guitar work by Howe, unusual baroque sounding keyboards by Wakeman as well as excellent drumming on Bill Bruford's part. Of all The Yes albums it is "Close To The Edge" that (in my opinion)shows the group has greatly matured and has perfected the art of progressive rock. The sound quality of this cd is superior to the Joe Gaswirt remixes that were released in 1994 with increased bass, an increase in mid-range and the total output of the cd has been maximized. The attractive packaging (digipak) is first class and the enclosed booklet includes the lyrics to the songs, colorful photos and information on the making of the album and it's songs. If you enjoy listening to seventies progressive art rock then "Cloe To The Edge" is a must have in any collection. Highly Recommended!

DSD? would you like that in the standard Stereo?? Or would you prefer mono? This disc gets the royal remake treatment over to DTS-HD-MA 5.1 and you want to complain about not using 24 year old Sony DSD tech? Please in the future refrain from crabbing about DSD (direct stream digital) tech,... Read More

Close to the Edge [Blu-ray] Steven Wilson Mix
They should have remastered it to DSD if you ask me. Then go from there with PCM resamples etc. I would have bought the blu-ray if it had DSD as well as the PCM. Most of us 'philes' are going to DSD - sounds better than PCM no matter the resolution IMO.
