        I can't help it. If it don't swing, it don't swing, and it don't swing. I'm just an increasingly tired and cynical old cunt.
        Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
        Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

          Would have preferred Geoff play the orchestral parts on his keyboards like Rick did with the Magnification material.

            Hard to overstate how shoddy and weak the vocals have gotten without Anderson or Squire in the mix.

              There are some tunes that are good as studio versions , but are even better on stage.
              For example Siberian Khatru (as performed in the 70’s)
              Or perhaps It Can Happen

              and some songs were very good in the studio but didn’t quite translate as well on stage (Owner, for example)

              Dare to Know seems unique in that , to me, it was not compelling as a studio piece, but comes across on stage as something not quite as compelling as the studio version

              not sure why they chose to present it on stage

                Instrumentally DTK was great live, but they need to change the vocal arrangement to have Davison sing the melody instead of harmonizing with Howe. I still think it's one of the better Yes songs of the last 30 years.

                  I like it, its never going to be a highlight of the set tune but at least they are having a go with playing new tunes live.
                  Kudos to Jay for some nice drumming to keep it bouncing along.

                    No its not the vocals, it's the keyboards...

                      It was tastefully done at the show I saw in Cincinnati a couple of weeks ago. Which show did you attend recently where the vocals disappointed you? I must have just caught them on a good night. Lucky me…

                        They're not at the level of Anderson/Squire, 2 of the best harmony singers in the history of rock music..
                        But the live vocals are still f'in good, JD's voice tone may not be my cuppa tea but boy can he sing, Sherwood can't sing like Squire (who the hell could) but he harmonises well with JD and likewise I think Howe knows his limitations and sings well as the bassy harmony layer still.
                        I'm commenting having seen them 3 times sans Squire, if you listen to the official live releases that backs it up. Youtube vids are never the best gauge of these things with so many variables.
