Epilogue
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite a cool set. The main man behind this is Billy Sherwood, and I always like the stuff he does.

Billy Sherwood - At the Speed of Life...
Review by G. W. Hill

Various Artists - Back Against the Wall
Review by Gary Hill
There are few people who haven't at least heard of Pink Floyd's The Wall. I would hazard to say that those who have never heard the album are in the minority as well.

Circa: - Circa:
Review by
Well, since I’m a huge Yes fanatic, it seems a foregone conclusion I would like this CD. The thing is, unless something purely amazing comes out in the next few months, this is my favorite disc for 2007 – yes, it’s that good.

Yoso is an interesting group. It is two former members of Yes (Tony Kaye and Billy Sherwood) and Bobby Kimball of Toto.

World Trade - Euphoria
Review by Gary Hill
There are many who claim that Billy Sherwood is nearly solely responsible for the song writing and arrangements on Yes' Open Your Eyes album. Listening to this album from him with his band World Trade, there are reasons to buy into this argument.

This box set is a class act. The whole thing comes in something that resembles a book.

Circa: - Live at RoSfest 2008
Review by Josh Turner
Circa was way too loud and believe it or not; much too redundant. They had a nice sound – a lot like Yes - but only to those who had ear plugs in and sat more than a few rows back.

Yes - Live In Milwaukee, November 13, 1999
Review by Gary Hill
This band just keeps getting better. Yes gave a wonderful performance on a Saturday night in Milwaukee. The stage show, featuring a screen behind the band that most of the night featured computer graphics, rivaled the light shows of Hawkwind.

Yes - Live in Milwaukee-November 15th, 1997
Review by Gary Hill
For me, this Yes tour was the best that I have ever seen. I should explain that statement by saying that, although I have been an avid Yes fan since 1975, I did not get the opportunity to see them until the 90125 tour. Therefore, I did miss many of what diehard Yes fans consider to be their best outings.

Yes - Open Your Eyes
Review by Gary Hill
Yes fans are pretty well divided on this album, many find it to be a sell out of Yes` musical principles, while many others find it good, but not great. There are still others who find it to be a very fine effort.

Yes - Open Your Eyes (Surround Sound Version)
Review by Gary Hill
This is in many ways a reprint of my earlier review of Open Your Eyes. As reviewed here, it does, however, reflect the changes made when the CD was remastered as the first album ever mixed for Surround Sound systems.

Various Artists - Songs of the Century: An All-Star Tribute To Supertramp
Review by G. W. Hill

I am a big fan of pretty much anything Billy Sherwood is involved with and I love Supertramp, so when I heard Sherwood was in charge of assembling an all star tribute to Supertramp, I was excited.

Various Artists - Tales From Yesterday
Review by Gary Hill
A tribute to the music of Yes, Tales From Yesterday, features some very fine renditions of Yessongs performed by a variety of artists (including several past and present members of Yes). This is a mixed bag. Some of the tracks are quite faithful to the original, while others represent major reworkings.

Yes - The Ladder
Review by Gary Hill
For some bands, the music industry seems to cause a paradox. In order to survive as an artist, one must have a certain degree of commercial success, but to the hardcore fans, doing so can bring forth cries of "too poppy".

Various Artists - The Moon Revisited
Review by Gary Hill
Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon was more than likely not only the best selling prog album of all time, but definitely the album, of all albums (not just prog) to stay on the charts the longest. From that point of view this tribute disc makes sense.
