    Of these four, it’s “Hearts” for me, by a wide margin. For whatever reason, “I Am Waiting” never really clicked for me. IMO the seven-note motif isn’t quite enough to build the song around, and I prefer “Endless Dream,” as a representative of Talk. “Final Eyes” and “Miracle” are both good songs. Thanks for the poll!

        I agree - maybe there are other tunes from the Rabin era that I or others might pick as favorites. But I picked I am Waiting from this group of four. But I could easily have said Hearts as​well. I think Rabin himself had said he did not love Final Eyes and thought it sounded like a Journey song.

          This isn't my favourite set either, just a set that I felt were comparable.

            I actually love Final Eyes, so I may vote that. Hearts is a true Yes song where the ending reminds me of the ending of Awaken(High vibration go on/As we flow down life's river). Miracle Of Life is a fun, golden song. Love I Am Waiting too, but I may tend to place that last.

              I cant vote, those are all pretty equal in my eyes, among my fav Yeswest.

                I feel like "I Am Waiting" doesn't belong in terms of comparisons, though. But I'm not sure what you would replace it with. Voted for "Hearts" because it is the best choice.

                  Final Eyes by some margin. Even if at the start it sounds like it wants to be Your Move...

                  Both Hearts and I Am Waiting are too much relying on really just one (good) theme. Miracle Of Life isn't bad, but just never clicked with me.

                      I'd rate all these about the same. Not top tier of course but worth an occasional listen.

                        Of those I really like both Hearts and Final Eyes. The other two - meh.

                          Is this by length? Because Hearts and Miracle of Life are more like mini epics, and I am Waiting and Final Eyes are more like longer songs.

                          I don't really like Final Eyes. Somehow it's two songs for me, the verse song, and the chorus song. I like them separately, but not as one unit, lol. A bit alike to Universal Garden, but the latter feels more one composition.

                          So it's, Hearts, Miracle of Life, I am Waiting and Final Eyes.

                            That's because it is! One idea of Trevor's and one of Jon's basically frankenstitched together,.

                              Basically, “frankenstitch” is the word of the day.
