Yes: Live At Manchester Apollo

John McCready, The Independent, February 1998

LIKE ALICE Cooper, who I saw late last year playing the same game, it's interesting to note that former forces of the 1970s are bowing to market forces and giving receding fathers of four exactly what they want; music with built-in cobwebs which reminds them of sixth forms back in the progressive mists of time. Yes play all the tracks that the most backward-looking heckler might request, much to the very apparent delight of a capacity audience.
