Union gets my vote for this poll.
Welcome to the middle of the film.

I like the ABWH Union material ---there are some cool songs and Bill and Steve are very good--Silent Talking is a good example---all the production drama aside. The cheesy Yes west stuff not so much--except Squire's The more we live is okay. So Union.

Union for me - beats most of Asia's albums IMO, although not one of my favourites. Pretty mediocre for a Yes album, but still pretty good Smile

Union. I prefer the Rabin led material. The "old" Yes stuff sounds tired IMO.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

I think that Arena is not the best to fight with Union, IMO, Aura is better, but about the poll, Union is better than Arena. Arena has The day before the war, a great prog track, but the rest is not special. Union has good tracks like Shock to the system from ABWH or Miracle of life or Lift me up from Yes with Rabin. Other ones are good too.

Ok, the best for me, not expecting that from everybody, but just an underated genius Smile

About Union, as it said about tastes there's nothing written, but I still think that The Miracle is proggy track, in the vein of Changes. Lift me up, not proggy but good. I really Like Yes works with Rabin.
