I've been a Yes fan since 1973 and am constantly amazed how brilliant these live versions are... "The Revealing Science of God" blows away the album version and if you don't find the performance of "Onward" one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded you just might not be a Yes fan... Pax...

It is okay.I miss the 70's albums when every song was wonderful,and I have still never really gotten over Bill leaving.Wow, that was a long time ago. If you are a completist buy it. If you're favourite is Howe ,well you know he will be marvelous regardless of anything else.

NOTE: YOU CAN NOW GET THE "COMPLETE" KEYS TO ASCENSION CONCERT IN A BOXSET. I HAVEN'T HEARD VOLUME 2. VOLUME 1 (THIS ALBUM) IS SO BAD I DID NOT WANT TO WASTE MY MONEY ON VOL 2.

This yet another Yes reunion album. It features the "classic" version of Yes: Howe, Anderson, Squire, Wakeman and White. The first disc and half of the second disc are live tracks from a show in San Luis Obisbo. The last two songs are new studio tracks. The first disc is 60 minutes long and the second is 50 minutes. The sound quality on both the studio and live material is excellent.
This has to be the worst Yes live album. This particular group hadn't played together in almost 20 years and the last "Yes" hadn't played for 3 years, and they were AWHB. The group just got together and hurriedly did this concert. There was not much time to practice or innovate. So, most of the tracks come out as flat or closely matching the studio versions.

The Revealing Science of God is just boring and tedious. It is the prime example of how Yes (along with Emerson, Lake and Palmer) killed off progressive rock with self endulgant excesses.

The version of America (which was also on Yes's second album) is a jumbled mess. It was nice for them to give it a try, but this particular version of Yes never played it before, and it shows.

Starship Trooper, Siberian Khatru and Roundabout have all been done before on a number of live albums, and have been done much better. Roundabout is especially bland.

The new track, Be The One, stinks, and is about as bad as anything Yes has done.

There are some high points on the is album. Onward has some very nice acoustic guitar work, but the vocals just keep droning on near the end.
