    I think it's their best yet and every track is a real gem. The 5.1 mix is also superb. imho Rob is easily as good as SW at surround mixes and this one really stands out.

    I was lucky enough to play test the 5.1 surround mix of this album and imho It's Rob's best surround mix to date. It's also released in DTS 24/96 (previous Magenta albums were DD only) and sounds...

    An exceptional album by a top, top band. If you only have the original cyclops release then the Kscope re-mix/re-master is well worth acquiring. Bruce and Steve did an incredible job with all of...

    As the good Dr. states above the three releases were all impacted by the Warner take over. No definitive word from Warner (at least not that I have seen.) Wilson himself stated several months ago...

  9. "Close to the Edge" 5.1 remix by Steven Wilson coming October

    Shame they didn't mention the 5.1 mix, which is rumoured to be one of SW's best to date, but great article and great publicity for Esoteric and Cherry Red who have worked exceptionally hard to carve...

    I've listened to all three quite a lot and seen them several times in concert. I prefer Karnataka and Panic Room, but The Reasoning have a lot of loyal fans too. The "new" Karnataka don't have any...

    That's a really sad statement from Steve Howe; he's effectively admitting that Yes have turned into their own tribute band. They used to be my favourite band but I stopped taking them seriously...

    I rate this as one of their best. I guess it may be that "moment in time" effect where what was happening and the circumstances at the time cast a rosy glow over it but for me it just shines.
