"The musical partnership between Yes-frontman Jon Anderson and larger-than-life Greek keyboardist and composer Vangelis Papathanassiou generated some truly outstanding works. This album does a very god job at compiling their best works, considering how difficult it is to find effective "Best of..." albums these days.All the music is fantastic, and I can only compare (maybe) to another musical collaboration that Jon Anderson had several years after this one, but with Kitaro, instead, which was beautifully captured in the album "Dream.""

"Excellent quality CD here; however, most of the songs are obscure to US residents I believe. Interesting selections, but calling it the 'best of' isn't the most appropriate title. I imagine the artist(s) chose their personal likes for this compilation, which is fine, just not the most well-known.
Great artistry, beautiful haunting melodies and lyrics with delivery only Jon Anderson can achieve. Thanks Jon and Vangelis, always!

"You can't go wrong with Jon and Vangelis, period. They work together so well it's amazing. This albums music is truly great and the title of the album belittles it's depth."
An Album That Merits Critical Acclaim

"It is clear that many musical artists keep a certain vision or style when composing their music. When two artists such and Jon and Vangelis combine their efforts, the best of both of their styles are sometimes brought out together to create brilliant and unique work. Such musical talent is experienced throught this whole album.
I find the track "He Is Sailing" as a good example of successful collaboration. It is almost essential to point out that Jon's voice virtually sounds magical as it is guided through Vangelis's musical fantasy. The musical assembledge is pleasing to the soul and deserves mass recognition.
