Bad sound venue, bad album (ah, I forced myself again with this one, all the great players were here, but not most of the tracks…). So what could we expect of 8 superstars (for the most), playing all together now ? Bad acoustics, bad mix, confused sound and presence, hateful egos, well separated with Anderson in the middle. Long tiresome FM tracks, diversely fated solos, more long tracks, best of the oldies and, at last, “Awaken”, not great but good : this was enough for me to save the show.
This is an answer to the guy who wanted a translation of some of jon anderson's French. I think it was "Pour votre aide a tout le monde merci beacoup". Your translation was essentially correct. It's: "Thank you very much everyone for your help". By the way, I caught Yes on last year's tour in Marseille, France and despite his proclivity to adorn lyrics and liner notes with French expressions, ol' Jon didn't muster much more than a couple merci beacoups. That's okay, you can't really translate "Going for the One" into French.
