Editorial Reviews

Recorded in 1996, Keys to Ascension highlights a series of brilliantly-staged live concerts at The Fremont Theatre in California’s San Luis Obispo. Great vision, stunning technical ability, incredible improvisational skills and imaginative presentation of ideas.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great music but poor video production April 15, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While the music on Yes' Keys to Ascension DVD is excellent, and the additional performances (a concert from the 1970s I believe) are great, the actual concert that is the focus of the DVD is marred by video production that is cheesy, with overlaid graphics and animations.

I assume this was done because the concert itself is pretty bare bones. No amazing stage or lighting, but the band, on-stage, playing. But to be honest, I would have preferred just to see the band, not the video effects.

Commentaries by Chris Squire are pretty good but overall the entire DVD just doesn't feel very professional. I guess this is well worth the money considering how cheap it now costs, but if you want a great Yes DVD, this isn't necessarily it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Concert-Poor video and production editing! June 26, 2013
Love Yes, but this is a travesty to the band-how they allowed Steve Mitchell to Direct and produce their music is a mystery to me. Many of the tracks are out of sync with the audio and look like are taken from different shows(they recorded 3 nights). The musicians are over-layed with cheap video effects and attempts at psychedelia(really the 60's are OVER)and the video is extremely washed out(check out Live at Montreaux to see the difference). Why they could not just show the band in concert(like House of Yes) without the extra crap is beyond belief-no one wants to see high school projected effects on top of such a quality group of musicians. Anyway we can blame Jon Anderson for allowing what could have been a classic reunion concert to be ruined by inept post production editing. Since the band is devoid of Anderson for several years now, it would be great if they could re-release this in it's original form. What a disappointment after enjoying the double CD release for several years. Shame on you YES.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes-more than a band, its a place. March 15, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Everytime i watch this i see something different. Their music , once you know the words, is a mystical journey. Now i see Avatar colors as i watch and listen. This is a must have for Yes fans. Stunning talent on display and of course the philosophy of Yes should be a universal language.
