    If you could have an extra album, which era?

    I've put multiple choice on this one, I know I would've loved another YesWest album, a Classic Lineup after Magnification and that elusive ARW album that was promised.

    Another album with Patrick Moraz.
    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.

      The Union lineup with a couple of songs with all 8 members and the other songs with different combinations of musicians. It could potentially have opened the door for Banks and Moraz to appear on a song since they left the band.

          Count me in for another album with the Relayer era. There are glimpses of greatness on all of the solo albums but I genuinely think if they had pooled all of that into one group album it would have been Yes's greatest LP.

            I just need three answers:

            Yes-West, a congenial follow-up to Big Generator
            A consequent development of Relayer with Patrick Moraz
            Another One from the Drama lineup

              I'd have liked another with Igor.

                I would have liked to see an album released in around 1985, between 90125 and Big Generator. A follow up closer to 90125 would have helped give this era of the band some momentum.

                  Oh, and I also would have like to have seen Peter included at any point or multiple points. All of the members had plenty of opportunities to make that happen in 40+ years, there is no excuse.

                    ARW.

                    Drama and Relayer would have been interesting, but not as surprising.

                      After the unexpected events of Union, I entertained the crazy notion of a new album from the original line up.

                          Yep. Another album with Pat Moraz in the lineup.

                            I put 2 choices. One more album with Patrick Moraz and an album from ARW.

                              I would like to expound a little more on why I would have liked to see an album between 90125 and Big Generator.
                              YES doesn't really have a strong 80's representation. (I am not counting Drama, which I associate as the end of the 70's era.) I suspect that there are a lot of people who are vaguely familiar with Owner of a Lonely Heart but are not sure of who the artist is. To them, this band might as well be a one hit wonder as far as they are concerned. It was like there was no follow up to 90125, in a timely manner. If they could have found a way to strike while the iron was hot and released an additional album in 1985, it could have reinforced their 80's era presence.
