The Keys to Ascension albums are great, but so frustrating. The classic 5-piece band had finally reunited at SLO and they wanted to get the recordings out there, plus they had a CD worth of new material. So what did the suits do? Fucked the whole thing up by releasing Keys at the same time as Open Your Eyes but giving it no promo at all, and split the live and new studio stuff between the two Keys releases. Yes has a long, long history of having no idea what they're doing on the business side, and trusting everything to managers and record execs who have no idea what they're doing, either.
The seven studio tracks from the two Keys albums total 74 minutes, which was the capacity of a CD back then (80 minute CDs hadn't come out yet). That can't be a coincidence. After the Union mess, the not-bad Talk by the 90125 lineup, and the band breaking up again, this should have been the amazing, massive return of the classic lineup. Seven new studio tracks, including two epics! Instead, almost no one has even heard it.
Anyway, the Keys material is solid, IMO. "Mind Drive" is easily my favorite latter-day Yes tune. Some of the other tracks do feel a bit padded out by endless repeated sections, but it all sounds good, so... okay.
