      I can't.
      I don't like any of the Rabin albums so I wouldn't want to hear them live. I've no interest in any of the music on Open Your Eyes or Heaven and Earth either. It's not that they're Yes albums I'm less keen on but I'm still a fan of because they're Yes albums; I'm not a fan of albums I don't like. I just don't care to hear them.
      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.

          A rather odd challenge.

          Surprisingly, 4 or your 5 least favorite Yes albums are also my least favorite Yes albums.

          Yes
          Keys to Ascension,
          Keys to Ascension 2,
          Open Your Eyes

          And I like Heaven & Earth more than Big Generator.

              I would, it would make for an interesting change and I find something to enjoy on all albums, Be the One might be the song i'd be least interested in.

                Best of the worst kind of thing. I think I would enjoy as well. Mine and most others. Every album has material that would work well live, especially for a fan.

                  Actually, I think I'd rather hear Masquerade instead of Solitaire, which I included, or both. Not much choice in these scenarios for a Steve solo.

                    Is it contradictory to say my least favourite albums are the ones I actually wish they’d play more? It’s probably no coincidence that my least faves are the albums without Anderson, he just has such a, well, *unique* presence and sensibility as closely identified with the band as the Roger Dean covers. But, he’s gone, and the band has moved on as well, and I’d so much rather see and hear them play is the present and lean into the future than dwell in the past. So never mind CTTE @ 50, I’d be more excited to hear them play TQ @ 1. Mind you, they’re not coming anywhere near Canada, so easy for me to say…

                              Had to expand it to seven albums to get it anything like a setlist. It's still a pretty short set.
