4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT MUSIC. Terrible Package. December 24, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
OKAY. We all know the Music is Golden. This is about the Box and the Sleeves. The box is just like the box for the Blue Öyster Cult set. After that it's all downhill. The album sleeves stink. Yes, they are all reproductions of the original albums. That's it. The sleeves are not study or thick as the BÖC sleeves. The sleeves flop open. The few sleeves that are not of Gate Fold design are too large for the disc. The CDs for Time and A Word; Drama; 90125 and Big Generator just fall out. Nothing holds them secure. As an extra there is a dinky poster. It's about as wide as 2 CDs side by side. THERE IS NO BOOK. BÖC's box had a generous book giving all the data that old fans want to revisit and new fans need to know.
The other frustration is that all the YES bonus tracks are listed ONLY on the discs themselves. The sleeves, since they represent the original albums, lack the bonus information. None of the albums have individual booklets.
One Word about this set: FRAGILE. (I plan to return mine).

3.0 out of 5 stars cheap, ineffective packaging December 30, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
and little quality control. not only are the non-gatefold sleeves shoddy...cds fall out at will...but mine showed up with missing discs. I will personally not replace this box. great music, though many of the bonus tracks are totally superfluous, but for the price, more care should be taken by the company. the continual flood of box sets and their contents is truly becoming an obvious commercial rip. again, this is not a criticism of the music of yes, just current presentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars For The Obsessed YES Fan December 27, 2013
By Robert
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I actually love this set, even though I already have all of the Rhino/Elektra remasters from way back. There are 12 discs in here that are the same mixes with the same bonus tracks as the Rhino/Elektra remasters. "Big Generator", however, was not part of the Rhino/Elektra remasters set, so this one album was my main reason for buying this. Sounds silly perhaps that I shelled out $65 usd for one album, but I have a fondness for BG and the CD version from 1987 sounds awful. The volume is extremely low, and doesn't even compare with the original vinyl LP. Plus the bonus tracks, however goofy and very 80's sounding, are fun to have. My suggestion for those who buy this: 1) Open carefully so you don't drop CDs and scratch them. "Time And A Word", "Tormato", "90125" and "Big Generator" fall out of the mini LP jackets because the cardboard opening is too wide to hold them snugly. Fortunately I had a bunch of CD envelopes. Cut them slightly at the top, and the CDs won't fall out as easily. The only other negative thing about this set is the lack of liner notes. But it's a nice cheap way to get the Yes studio albums from 1969-1987 if you don't already have them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very encompasing box set. December 24, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Its a great box but where is YES songs. The sound is great. Not quite as good as the SW CTTE blue ray but excellent. I wave haphazardly bought the YES CD's over the years but nice to have all the main albums in one nice set. I love it all, early, middle and late. I have seen almost every incarnation of the band and even met some of them over the years. As this is a review about the CD's and nature of the music and not the current fluctuating state of affairs with the band I give the collection of 5 stars. 1. Where and when could you get this much great music for this price 2.Although the extra's are not that great the original CD sound so great re mastered. When I first bout a CD player in the 80's and got some of the very 1st CD's ever YES is what I got. Those CD sound actually poor compared to this. The second series of re masters were fairly descent. I still think the last version of CTTE is just fantastic. I hope they do Fragile, the YES album, and GFTO this way. As above YES SONGS is probably one of my favorite yes performances but sounds poor even though the performances are great. This is a bit of an omission for the set. Otherwise great music with brilliant playing and production.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is GREAT! December 26, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This box set contains all of the Atlantic era YES albums. The versions presented here are the same as the last remasters from Rhino in 2003-2004. I skipped those since I had bought these albums three times before (vinyl, the original CD releases and the first batch of remasters). Although I wanted all of the cool bonus tracks included on the new releases I couldn't really justify the expense of buying all of this again. Thankfully, this new set takes care of that problem as it is priced reasonably and includes all 62 bonus tracks!
Much cheaper than buying these separately. The discs are housed in a clam shell style box with beautiful Roger Dean artwork. They each come in a mini-LP style sleeve that faithfully reproduces the original vinyl covers. If the vinyl had a gatefold cover, the minis will have one too, even the triple panel GOING FOR THE ONE gets reproduced here. All of the discs have the original label art printed on them and it all looks very attractive. As far as the remastering goes, I honestly can't tell that much difference from the previous remastering they got. They sound very good. The bonus tracks are a mixed bag, many are not terribly interesting but there are some gems, including some great stuff from the TORMATO sessions. Sound quality on the bonus tracks varies from lousy to excellent.
The set also includes a small poster of the Roger Dean cover art. All in all, this is exactly the box set that I have been waiting for.
Beautifully presented with all the bonus tracks at an affordable price. If you combine this set with the previously released 5 disc set called ESSENTIALLY YES you will have the entire YES studio catalog (with the exception of UNION and FLY FROM HERE) in the nifty mini-LP format. If you've already bought the Rhino remasters in their single versions then you can safely skip this one. I really love it and it was the perfect thing for me.

Big Generator remastered?
Agreed. My personal preference would be some well-recorded live DVD and CD recordings of the 2 long tours they did in 1975 & 1976 with Patrick Moraz. Would also love to hear the live stuff they did (very briefly before dropping it) from the 1976 tour when they all played selections from their 5... Read More
