    Make Your Perfect Post Magnification Yes Album

    Simple task - using any combination of tracks from Fly From Here, Return Trip, From A Page, Heaven and Earth and The Quest, construct your perfect 40 to 80 minute album.

    In addition, officially released new material off this eras live albums is acceptable. Off the top of my head that's "Imagine" but there may be more.

    Here's mine -


    Hour Of Need
    Solitaire
    In From The Storm
    Don't Take No For An Answer
    Believe Again
    To Ascend
    Light Of The Ages
    Subway Walls
    To The Moment
    From the Turn of a Card
    Imagine
    The Ice Bridge
    Western Edge
    A Living Island


    As that's really tight on time, "To The Moment" might have to be the single version.

    The FFH Suite (with Horn)
    Life On A Film Set (with Benoit)
    Hour of Weed (long version with Horn)
    Solitaire
    The Game
    To Ascend
    It Was All We Knew
    Light of the Ages
    Gift of Love

      I like the majority of post Magnification Yes alot so this is hard:

      Fly From Here intro
      We Can Fly
      Sad Night at the Airfield
      Madman at the Screens
      The Western Edge
      To the Moment
      Dare to Know
      The Ice Bridge
      Solitaire
      Subway Walls
      Leave Well Alone
      Future Memories
      Into the Storm

      (well over a reasonable album length i know)

        A 40-80 minute cover version of John Cage's 4' 33" ?
        perhaps with a hidden bonus track of the song [not suite] Fly From Here

          Pretty difficult for me as well, but if I had to narrow it down to a single vinyl LP:

          We Can Fly - 2011
          Dare to Know
          TMYAWMTB - 2011
          Step Beyond

          The Ice Bridge
          Life on a Film Set - 2011
          Minus the Man
          Into the Storm

                    Skyscraper Souls could work as a Yes track, as would 'Freeway' by the Producers.

                      I'm gratified to discover the usual healthy lack of agreement about what constitutes "the good stuff" !

                      Personally you'd have to hold a gun to my head before I'd include stuff like TMYAWMTB, Life On A Filmset and It Was All We Knew...

                          Since I like FFH so much more than the others, it would be a slightly shortened FFH with bonus tracks, butchering the so called epic in the process.

                          1. Fly From Here (song)
                          2. Sad Night At The Airfield
                          3. Madman At The Screens
                          4. TMYAWMTB
                          5. Life On A Filmset
                          6. Hour Of Need
                          7. Solitaire
                          8. Into The Storm
                          9. Light Of The Ages
                          10. Subway Walls
                          11. Future Memories

                          These are the songs I love, and not merely like.

                            Even though your choices are wrong.

                              I can't do it. Not enough material of high enough quality for me. The Fly from Here Suite is pretty good, and I believe it's taken on great sentimental significance for Horn after the death of his wife. Honestly though, there are so many albums by other artists released in the last two decades that have impacted upon me to a far greater degree than any of the post-Magnification Yes albums.
                              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.
