Gem of an album so late in the career of Yes.

Dreamtime without a doubt. Just love Squire’s groove and Howe’s guitar. What a mammoth track. I really love this album.

I really do like the title track, as it has always stood out to me in their more modern sets, even since the first time I heard the track. It sounded very "Yes" right off the bat.

I'm a sucker for anytime Chris takes the lead...
Can You Imagine?
I love Jon, but it doesn't sound like Yes without Squire's vocals.
Anytime he comes to the front, I'm smiling.

any album late in their career that just included JUST the classic line-up or in Mag case 4 of the original---has something on it that is very Yes and very good...the orchestrator of Mag did a great job of doing what Wakeman or MOraz would have played.

Magnification gets my vote, though I like the rest of the music quite a lot.

Definitley not the title track, and even though I do like In the Presence of a lot, I have to choose between Spirit of Survival and Dreamtime...

Give Love Each Day was an immediate standout. It would make a good wedding song for somebody.

You did not include Time Is Time.

I love that song. Lovely, simple, unpretentious.

Gorgeous closing track, especially after the doublewhack of Dreamtime / In The Presence Of.
Perhaps finding the happy medium is harder than we know.
