4th in series of Remixed & Expanded classics, this has been mixed by Steven Wilson in 5.1 Surround from the original studio masters and is band approved!

In keeping with earlier releases in this series, Steven Wilson’s approach to this album for New Stereo and 5.1 Mixes is to faithfully retain the Spirit and Sounds of the Original Album Mix, while applying modern mix techniques to bring further clarity to the individual instrument, vocal and overdubs for each track.
The songs, instantly familiar to a multitude of YES fans, remain so, with the new mixes – especially in 5.1 form – providing a greater sense of space for each voice to be heard, Anderson’s voice seems to join the listener in the room, Howe and Wakeman’s solos glisten with clarity and Bruford and Squire remind all that they were unmatched as a rhythm section during that period.

In addition to the main album, Steven unearthed a virtual treasure trove on the multi-track tapes, allowing him to mix full length and Acapella versions of: ‘We Have Heaven’, an earlier take of: ‘South Side Of The Sky’ and in perhaps the most exciting discovery of this series to date – a previously unheard segment of a piece now called: ‘All Fighters Past’ which incorporates ideas that would later form parts of: ‘The Revealing Science Of God’ (‘Tales From Topographic Oceans’) and ‘Siberian Khatru’ (‘Close To The Edge’) performed in the style of: ‘Roundabout’!

With a further 2 Additional Tracks – Alternate Takes of ‘Roundabout’ and ‘Mood For A Day’, plus numerous exclusive to Bluray Edition Features, including the Complete Album In Instrumental Form mixed by Steven Wilson, this is the Definitive Edition of ‘Fragile’.
