    My least favorite albums are Union, Open Your Eyes, Big Generator, KTA2 and Talk. (I don't include the last 2 albums because I don't know them enough, I only listened two times or so. ABWH would be included, but it's not a Yes album, in my opinion.)

    So... My set would include:

    -The More We Live, Holding On and Miracle of Life from Union (the only songs I can listen to on that one... I do love the intro to Silent Talking, but not the vocal bit.)
    -Mind Drive from KTA2;
    -Big Generator and Love Will Find a Way from BG;
    -Universal Garden and Loveshine from OYE;
    -I am Waiting and Endless Dream from Talk.

    (Not in that order, I'm too lazy to actually make a setlist.) I'm not sure how long the show would be...

    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.
    So that’s 3 Rabin/Yes albums plus, and you don’t like a single song? Wow, and I thought I was hard to please...

    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…

    Concert:

    - Order of the Universe

    - The Game
    - Themes
    - Light of the Ages
    - Steve solo: Masquerade

    - The More We Live - Let Go
    - Brother of Mine

    Encore:

    - Silent Talking
    - Open Your Eyes
    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.

    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.

    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.
