    I may possibly agree. 'For Everyone' should have been on the album to transition better from the original Yes to the new 1971 Yes. The 'Disillusion' melody from For Everyone would be great when you hear it again in Starship Trooper, like a reprise - foreshadowing their conceptual ideas of recurring themes earlier.

    Clap is a live solo cut on a studio album, that's just kinda weird and almost like padding it out because they didn't have another song to use.
    For Everyone, not a bad idea...

    But I’m ok with Clap. My problem with it is not that it’s live, nor that it’s an acoustic. I think it’s too much boogie-woogie/honky-tonky/yeehaw. Not quite as silly as Ram, but silly enough.

          See, that is the definition of a hot take - someone has to harrumph about it. 😜

            I want Jon A back in the band before the CTTE tour begins and forever after.

              That's not a hot take, though. A Hot Take would be:
              "Steve needs to get over himself and stop OK Boomer-ing and let Jon back into the band until the end of time."

                Patrick Moraz is the best keyboard player Yes ever had and Going For The One would have been a far better album if they had kept him in the band.

                  My hot take: I don't know what a hot take is.

                  Is it tasty?

                    Steve should ditch the steel guitar and play bottleneck like a proper guitar-player would!
                    Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
                    Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

                      It depends. Some people like cold takes though - a take tartare.

                        Ok. Something Like that then. 😆😉

                          Here's a hot take:

                          Drama is the best album Yes ever recorded, and the purring of panthers should be amplified and ring loud throughout the cosmos.

                                "Turn of the Century" is a twiddling, meandering snoozefest.

                                Chris' bass sound on Tormato is amazing.

                                I half-expected to hear Billy was joining ZZ Top.
