I think their greatest album was Relayer - their greatest album didn't have Wakeman on it!
Ain't that the truth.
Hey, it sure is good to see you here, gingerbaker.

If Yes were to "get their act together", I believe it is entirely possible that they could strike at least one more notch into their collective belts with a new classic.So much still going for them.Jon's voice now better than ever.Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman in one band - the second leg of the 2004 tour - someone had the brilliant idea of sitting them together for the acoustic set at 45 degree angles to one another.Watching them both up there, well you just knew you were in the presence of not merely greatness, but dare I say it?Immortality.
The Chris Squire/Alan White rhythm section.
All this still available to them as a band to turn to their own advantage.What needs to happen is some lightning stroke of inspiration.
Yes needs the world to listen, but more than that, the world needs Yes to hear.
