    5.1 icon Yes - THE YES ALBUM [DVD-A/BDA]

    Please post your thoughts and comments on this 2014 release with a new 5.1 mix by Steven Wilson. Please mention which format you are commenting on in your response. The mix is the same on both formats.

    The retail DVD-A comes in a hard slip case, which is very nice. Here is a scan of the back with the audio data:

    I have the BDA and have heard the 5.1 twice plus the live extras. Absolutely brilliant. The 5.1 is so immersive and everything very clear. This album's harmony vocals sound perfect in this format.

    No particular highlights yet, its all good. This is one of those albums that I don't listen to much nowadays as I know it so well, but I have to say that it sounds so fresh in this format that I want to listen to it again straight away.

    The live tracks are amazing versions, with very good quality sound. The extended A Venture isn't that much longer, but is very interesting as expected. An excellent all round package.

    A 10 from me, Mr Moore how could you have known

    A clear 10 from me for the Blu Ray.

    The audio sounds amazing and the 5.1 mix pretty much nails it in all aspects. It sounds fresh, new and as if it was always meant to sound this way. And naturally, the content is superb. Lots to explore and a nice booklet too.

    My only complaint, and it's just a very minor niggle, is that I am increasingly disliking the choice of packaging. More and more of my Blu Ray albums are coming in standard Blu Ray Amaray cases. and whilst I appreciate the "vinyl replica" nature of the Yes packaging, they're a little bit too non-standard for my liking (read, OCD!) and probably more liable to wear and tear

    But as a product, they've nailed it again

    This is YES. You are kidding right??? umm kay..lets think about this:

    *Brilliant HiFi recording engineered by Eddie Offord and remixed by Stevie Wilson - check
    *BluRay or DVD-Audio to suit personal taste - check
    *Excellent signal on the original tapes - check
    *Classic YES recording, the very first with Steve Howe(One of the top two guitarists in history) - check
    *YES are my favorite band and my church, frankly - check

    Ok, sorry boys, this gets a 10

    P.S. I will be pissed if TYA BluRay is not in my mailbox when I arrive home tonight.

    P.S. II. Good news lads! I have promised Jon that I will limit my prevoting only to classic YES 5.1 Steven Wilson mixes, and
    mainly because it is painfully obvious to even the most casual observer that they are in fact TENS in every way.

    Got my DVD-A today and listened to it in my Acura. Sounds amazing, very clear. I heard a couple of times where the guitar was coming from the front center speaker and it sounds like it's right there.
    The only weird thing is that I have to turn the volume up to about 20, whereas most DVD-A's I listen to at between 10 and 15. Also, like CTTE, I have to crank the bass up a little higher than normal to get a fuller sound, otherwise it's very trebly.
    I can't say I'm a hardcore Yes fan but there's some great music on here.

    Got the Blu Ray today. Haven't had a chance to spin it yet as we were busy watching playoff hockey. However, I rip all of my stuff to a PC - did that in-between periods. Came up with a question for Neil (or anyone else that might know). Here's what I see for the Titles on the Blu Ray based on DVD Audio Extractor... I'm utterly clueless when it comes to authoring, so I may just not be seeing the whole picture.
    Titles 1-7 Versions of the complete album, no track breaks (8-14 have individual tracks)
    Title 8 - New Mixes (Stereo, 5.1) 24/96
    Title 9 - Original Stereo Mix 24/192
    Title 10 - Alternate Album 24/96
    Title 11 - Single Versions, Edits & Live 24/96
    Title 12 - Instrumental Mix 24/96
    Title 13 - ??? 24/96 Stereo
    Title 14 - Needle Drop 24/96

    So what the heck is Title 13? It is 24/96 & has the same running time as the 24/192 original mix. Is this simply a 24/96 version of the original mix? The wave form for Yours Is No Disgrace looks a little different, so I wasn't sure... Anyway thanks & I'll get a review on as soon as I get a chance to spend some time with it... Can't wait!

    My copy came two days ago, thank you Burningshed!

    Just had time to listen to the surround and a few bluray exclusive live tracks but I am very happy. Wonderful clarity and I am hearing things I never heard before, and I grew up with Yes. Steve Howe should be very happy that his guitar playing can be appreciated even more now. I have noticed that the volume level is much lower than other blurays/dvdas I have so I have to turn it up and the bass may need to be adjusted too. Need to listen more and I do want to listen to the new stereo mix. Bring on GFTO! Bring all of them on!

    Totally agree, those names, apart from NW and Clair Bidwell, were missing from the CttE notes. And don't forget Tim McDonell, who is our own Timbre4! A big Thank You to you all.

    (a bit off topic, but Chris Gerhard and Bob Squires are missing from the sleeve notes. These guys were also responsible for the SQ on the King Crimson releases. Bob is posting, but Chris has not been posting on QQ for a long time. Does anybody know if he is alright?)

    Thanks for the shout out, we don't always get listed in liner notes as it varies by project. Just so very glad that we are getting such amazing releases!

    Can't say what's up with Mr Gerhard, Mr Squires has been busy with a new job I believe. He should be along shortly to correct the record. Cheers

    Just got my notification from amazon.com that my BD of the Yes album has just shipped and will be here Friday! I hate to have to wait but with all the great things being said about the mix I know this will be worth as it CttE was great! On the upside I got my Deluxe Homo Erraticus yesterday to tide me over until then . Man for all the death knells that have been tossed around about physical media and surround music, 2013 and now 2014 are starting to look more like the new and greater peak of both rather than the death. My thanks to all involved on both sides keeping this passion alive.

    All I can say is WOW

    I bought the CD/Blu-ray. Its taken an album I had 'over' listened to years ago and breathed new life into it. I remember going round to a school friends when it came out to listen to it, and I got that same fresh wow feeling again. The 5.1 mix brings out things I hadn't heard before, and I do like the channel hopping guitar! The sound quality is really fantastic for an album released in 1971, and the 5.1 opens it up, I have to confess to not being sure it would work on this album, but it has, thanks SW. The other great thing is stick in the disc, push the green button and get 5.1 LPCM, thanks NW. I can see this one being played rather a lot and loud (hopefully the neighbours will like Yes).

    I can't wait for the rest to be done, especially Relayer & Tales From Topographic Oceans which have so much that 5.1 can bring to the fore.

    I can't say enough good things about this disc. While I love CTTE, this is one that is much easier to throw on and listen to because it's not sooo involved. However the new 5.1 mix makes these songs sound fresh and new. It is a great surround mix (aren't all the SW mixes though??). Clever and effective. I have been enjoying this for a while in the process of testing and fine tuning things for Neil and with each listen I have heard things that I never noticed before. Even if you are a casual Yes fan this really is a no-brainer.

    I figured you were all sick of me raving about SW mixed new releases. Heck, one (former) member flamed out and, well, you know the story, because he thought I was some SW lackey.

    Needless to say, you are all finding out on your own now that this is a winner. A true winner. How could it not be?

    Is there anyone else currently "carrying the torch" for 5.1 the way SW is?

    Needless to say, you are all finding out on your own now that this is a winner. A true winner. How could it not be?

    No no no Jon. There are always unhappy people who seem to be able to only contribute negatively. Don't let those clowns ruin the party. Please provide all the input
    you can generate! And thanks again for these polls and what behind the scenes efforts that you do contribute.

    Well lupin man, have you got this yet, and if so what do you think (other than the obligatory 10 vote)? I have to say that The Yes Album is very possibly my favourite surround release ever (to date of course).

    It arrived last night from Steven Wilson's website. Not bad a wait for coming from across the ocean. I did pre-order it, btw....

    Ok after listening to it, I can't believe I am about to do this(yes, I will actually modify my pre-vote of 10....)

    The mix is in fact very adventurous & different. When I first played YIND, there seemed to be so much coming out of the center channel I thought
    my disc had the 5.1 "mono" mix. Ater a while it settled in to my ears and I was reminded that when Steven Wilson does a 5.1 mix he will use all the
    channels equally so you better have a well balanced 5 full range speaker system!. It was fabulous to hear Tony Kaye's Hammond screaming from the two back channels!

    Any time a professional mixes something into 5.1 that was recorded originally into 2.0, well, there can be no reference 5.1 mix. There are frankly a billion possible choices to be made to use up all the new found sonic space. So, I am not picky about a mix because it will always be one professional's choices & opinion. For me, I enjoy SW mixes and TYA is no exception. I am thrilled to death to add TYA to my precious collection of discrete 5.1 mixes and the 3rd classic YES recording as such.

    I must now vote TYA by Steven Wilson & NW and some outstanding peeps here who helped on it as an:





    wait for it.....

    P.S. @Timbre4: Congrats on your contributions here. I didn't know you were involved. Well done Laddie!

    P.S. II. FWIW, I bought 2 copies of the BluRay. I love my SACDs & DVD-Audio discs but I have moved on and I will be buying BluRay when given the choice. As an old analog tech, I have finally gone ALL HDMI. The only analog cables in my stereo are my speaker wires. I just really love the ease and power of HDMI.
