RECORD NEWS: Yes - relayer. 24/96 in multichannel, mixed by Steven Wilson

Written by

Steven Wilson has focused on the best Yes album. Relayer is remixed in 5.1.

Steven Wilson is especially known for taking in a classic rock album, and making a HighRes multi-channel version of it. This time it's an album of the classic progressive rock group Yes that has been in the making. And this is is not jusyt any album, but the album Relayer - an album where the strongly profiled keyboard player Rick Wakeman was replaced by Patric Moraz. And in somebodys ears, this was a much needed boost and a breath of fresh air. At the same time it must be said that Relayer simply is not a very easily accessible album. It is crammed full of musical intricate reasoning.

This is not the first Yes album that is relaunched in multichannel. From before both The Yes Album, Fragile and Close to the Edge have been released on DVD Audio and Blu-ray, and both The Yes Album and Close to the Edge was the same Steven Wilson that was responsible for.

Relayer is reissued after approval of Yes, and is available in two editions. You can choose between DVD-Audio / CD and Bly-ray / CD. In both cases there is already talk about a dual-disc release, which, respectively, DVD-Audio and Blu-ray has mulikanals tracks in 24bit / 96kHx in 5.1.

We hope to come back with a review of the re-release of Relayer.
