    Yes: The Big Medley II?

    Anyone else think YES should try to compose an all-new, sick-ass medley to hit some of the tunes they rarely, if ever, play? I guess the Mind Drive-SSoTS-ToTC-Footprints-Mind Drive in '04 came close...

    Might be cool if they give you more than a tease of each. Like in '78.

    How about composing a NEW sick ass medley that is worth hearing and actually breaking new ground? The new material does nothing for this Yes fan, and I own most of their shit. Smoke whatever you need to get it done...whatever. These guys need a big torch lit under their asses, because right now theyre dead to me.

    I'd like to see them take the best bits of TfTO and put it together in a 30 minute piece.

    "Countryside" would have made a cool album track had they finished it.

    Love the dark folk-prog vibe. So un-Yes like, yet it worked.
