Yes, "Yes" is an album band and you should buy them all, but if you're looking for a single disc collection, this is pretty good. Even at just 12 tracks, it does at least include their biggest hits. "I've Seen All Good People", "Roundabout", "Long Distance Runaround", and the huge hit "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" are all included. Me being a child of the 80's, I'm really glad this has "Leave It" and "Rhythm Of Love", but I wish it also had "It Can Happen" and "Love Will Find A Way". Oh well, what can you do. One thing for sure, the last three tracks sound very 80's, while the rest of course has that 70's feel to it, which I guess makes sense. Overall this is an excellent dose of classic rock, and a good sampling of classic "Yes".

Want to know all about Yes without listening to songs that are twenty minutes long? Do you want only the hits, instead of hearing songs in the context of their original albums? Are your favorite Yes songs "I've Seen All Good People," "Roundabout," and "Owner of a Lonley Heart"? If you answred "Yes" to any of these questions, I suggest you check out "Highlights: The Very Best of Yes." Everything the casual fan would want is here. Going in chronological order, the album takes the listener upon a journey from Yes' early days ("Survival," "Time and a Word") to their breakthrough album, "The Yes Album," with "Starship Trooper" and "I've Seen All Good People," to their masterpiece, "Fragile," with "Roundabout" and "Long Distance Runaround" to their '80s revival album "90125," with the songs, "Owner of a Lonely Heart" and "Leave It," to "Rhythm of Love" from the "Big Generator" album. For casual fans, does this album have everything you need? Yes.

A great album, to be sure! There are some truly fantastic songs here. It is a great beginning for the casual YES fan, or a great introduction to some of YES' greatest moments. I regard YES as one of the very best supergroups of all time, right at the top with Pink Floyd, Zeppelin, and the Stones. But as a long time YES fan, I believe that anyone who stops short of going deeper into YES' music is missing the whole point of it. They were not about creating pop music "hits.". They were about creating musical masterpieces. There is some great music here, but if you want to experience something really special, take the time to experience the entire albums: The Yes Album, Fragile, and Close to the Edge (YES' masterwork.) These were their first three breakthrough albums. If you like these, then go deeper. The next albums: Tales from Topographic Oceans, Relayer, and Going for the One took the Close to the Edge format, and went deeper. The "Gates of Delirium" from Relayer, and "Awaken" from Going for the One are the masterworks here. Save Tales for last. It is quite a magnicent voyage if you listen to that two record set all the way through. Those six albums were the real golden age of YES. There is plenty more to YES if you make it that far. If you do, you will regard YES in a completely different light, and I believe you will not listen to music the same way again. The casual fan knows YES from the 1980's and "Owner of a Lonely Heart." That was a popular hit, but represents only one of several incarnations of YES.

Yes' trademark album-length improvisation and musicianship has never made it the best choice for a one-disc greatest hits collection. For a band with the same intrigue as a court of kings, even the handful of Top 40 hits enjoyed over its first 15 years seemed like comebacks ("Leave It") or flukes ("Roundabout") . This remains true of this cobbled together 1993 collection which, at least, improves on 1981's ill-timed and titled "Classic Yes."
The set is dominated by songs either well known or catchy and short enough to fit. The band had too few hits not to include the late 80s tracks "It Can Happen" or "Love Will Find A Way." Yes fans would also miss "And You and I," (edited and released as a single from "Close To The Edge.") "Don't Kill The Whale" and others from the group's prolific 70s output. But most fans who would miss those tracks have the full original versions.
Moreover, for a band whose covers seemed to comment on the music within, the artwork seems slapdash against better annotated sets. (Atlantic couldn't have edited the perfectly fine essay from 1991's box set?) But again, hearing soaring "Yes Album" and "Fragile" harmonies back to back is a thrill after digging through Yes' sometimes murky, sometimes magnificent music to find them. And, for a band maligned for feuding and revolving door personnel, all tracks gel surprisingly well; the 70s tracks carry a bit of funk and the sparser 80s hits (including winter 1984's #1 "Owner of A Lonely Heart"), a touch of the group's revered prog rock.
"The Very Best of Yes," nowhere near a complete picture of the band, will do until Rhino (which has recently remastered and re-released several early band titles) releases a comprehensive yet affordable two-disc set updating 1992's "Yesyears."

As other reviewers have stated, this is a succinct list of "essential" tracks. Every song on here is strong, there is no filler. For many, this will only serve as an appetizer. You will have Chris Squire's bass lines going through your head for days. When you realize that this doesn't annoy you like it would for other bands, you will be hooked.

Buy this. Give it a dozen or so listens, then follow up with Greatest Hits Live or Roundabout: Best of Yes Live. Then continue with the studio albums. You can thank me later.
