You may read the complete review at Musical Discoveries Review Digest.

"ENVISION: Live @ The Tralf"  is a live performance from a single show, and naturally there are human frailties there for all to hear. But there are many truly great moments as well. In many places, ENVISION captures the magic contained in these wonderful songs! This 2-CD release is very representative of a live show from ENVISION.

REVIEWS:

From Patrick Moraz: "ENVISION sounds great, at times better than the original."

From Jeff Hunnicutt, co-editor of Notes From The Edge: "ENVISION is great, very true to the sound. The CD is just brilliant!"

From John W. Patterson, editor of Fusion/Progressive Magazine: "ENVISION is Yes reborn, the ravages of time removed, and the original sacred fires of aural excellence rekindled. My hat's off to you ENVISION! Three thumbs up, and my ears are smiling. Melissa, Matt, and crew -- you have touched one of the cornerstones of Art Rock and the foundation
shook! A golden rain of glistening prog gems lays at your feet. Well done!!"

From Roy DeRousse for Awaken Magazine: "ENVISION is an Ohio-based band whose mission is '[being] dedicated to performing the magic of classic Yes.' ENVISION has met that challenge. Its versions of the songs are very faithful to the originals, yet there are enough small differences to make it interesting to the fan who has heard the songs many, many times. ENVISION stays close enough to the originals while still adding something
fresh to keep it interesting."

From Kevin Carr: "Being a Yes fan for more than 24 years, I have always been intrigued by their music and their talent. So, of course I would set out to see any band that had the vision to play their music. I was lucky enough to catch the ENVISION show at Pop's in St. Louis. It was amazing and refreshing. ENVISION has done it right, and with great passion."

From Barb Carpenter: "I have always been amazed at the monstrous talent it takes for Yes to create their music, and have always held them in the highest esteem for it. But to find a band that mirrors Yes' music to the note, along with all of the heavenly sound effects and the heart behind Yes music, is truly a treasure I never thought I'd see in my lifetime. As, in my opinion, Yes' talent stands far above the myriad of musicians paraded before us throughout the last 32 years, Northeast Ohio's ENVISION stands right along with it. Believe me, that is no understatement and it is coming from a very discerning,
loyal Yes fan."
