"Melodic, Moody and Classy"
"Put Live at the Half Moon onto your CD player and you have an excellent attempt at an imitation of Yes.
Heart of the Sunrise is so close to the real thing with some excellent keyboard playing which, at times, sounds very Wakeman like as it does on Six Wives.
I particularly enjoyed the medley, a good way of including as much of the Yes back catalogue as possible. The Fish (Schindleria Praematurus) lacks the rich depth that Chris gives to it (90125 - The Solos) and Soon is a favourite with the lovely keyboard instrumental opening. An excerpt from The Revealing Science of God takes us cleverly into the drum solo (originally a duet) from Ritual and the medley is rounded off neatly with a rousing Yours Is No Disgrace.
I can't close this review without making a comment on what is, I think, the finest track on this superb album. Although lacking the 'bite' Yes give to it Owner of a Loneley Heart is beautifully played, melodic, moody and classy quite excellent. Fragile have achieved, to a large extent, the task of capturing the essence of Yes on this album they have succeeded in creating the 'live' element (always a major one) and had my feet tapping - as do the real Yes. I look forward to seeing and hearing more of Fragile in the future."
