AllMusic Review by

This disc by Yes frontman Jon Anderson and Greek keyboard wizard Vangelis is a compilation of songs from various releases they recorded together over the years. It presents a very entertaining collection of material and a great introduction to their progish, electronically oriented musical creations. Of course, the central selling point to many will be the inclusion of the duo's one hit, "Friends of Mr. Cairo." That piece, a tribute to film noir, is a wonderful piece, and truly befitting of being a highlight. However, there are plenty of other strong songs here as well.
