Yes or not Yes, what the heck...
No original members left but everyone involved in at least one studio record.
Jon Davison: Self confident, entertaining and hitting every note. Sometimes brittle, often great
Billy Sherwood: Concentrated on emulating Chris Squire's bass and (often underestimated) vocal parts. Pretty good though he left off some important parts in "Does it really happen" and his voice is not as sharp as Chris' which used to jump out of the choir sometimes ("tail fly"). Great on bass, he managed to receive some extra applause.
Geoff Downes: Ok, the "Siberian Kathru" solo is not his cup of tea but remember what Moraz did to Wakeman's parts and vice versa (small "Gates"-excerpt on the "big medley" from the Tormato tour)?
Rumour goes Chris Squire was responsible for slowing down the songs because he didn't like the high-speed approach of the Trevor Rabin lineup. Well, this phase is over now, Steve Howe and Alan White were cut loose and Yes were rocking.
The sound is a bit boomy but rather listenable. Almost no talkers.
The guy next to me recorded too, so maybe there'll be more.
