1999 UK Limited, Numbered Edition 2LP 180gm Original Housed In A Gatefold Cover. This Is Low Number 00793. Cover Art By Roger Dean. Although The LPs Appear To Be New, They Are Visually Typical Of English Pressings Of This Era. Having Said That The Play Graded Without Surface Noise, And The Recording Is Outstanding. “You'd Probably Need A Mainframe Computer To Keep Track Of All The Personnel Changes In Yes Over The Years, And The Quality Of The Prog Rock Giant's Music Has Fluctuated Nearly As Much As The Lineups. The Ladder Is A Synthesis Of The Best Traits Of The Experimental Fragile Era And The Pop-Oriented 90125 Era. Producer Bruce Fairbairn Completed The Ladder Shortly Before His Death In 1999, And Unlike Some Of His Work With Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Kiss, And Others, He Didn't Overproduce It. Vocalist Jon Anderson, Lead Guitarist Steve Howe, And Bass Guitarist Chris Squire All Have Fine Moments, And Drummer Alan White Is Consistent. "Homeworld (The Ladder)" Is A Tight Band Performance, But The Supple Vocals/Acoustic Guitar/Piano Coda Is The Best Part. Howe's Bouncy Acoustic Guitar Drives "Lightning Strikes," Yet The Biggest Surprise Is The Addition Of A Horn Section. The Energetic "Face To Face" Is The Strongest Track, And Squire Lets Loose With A Sputtering Bassline. "If Only You Knew" Is A Sweet, Straightforward Love Song Anderson Wrote For His Wife. "The Messenger" Has A Smooth, Funky Feel -- A Remarkable Feat Considering Prog Rock Is Usually Considered The "Whitest" Rock Genre. "New Language" Is The Best Long Song On The Ladder, Thanks To A Clever Arrangement Giving All Six Members An Opportunity To Demonstrate Their Talents.” Bret Adams, AMG.
