Big Generator took a long time to create but, fear not, this episode isn’t quite as long as that process was. We look at the singles generated by Big Generator and we also consider what extras might be included on new studio albums today.

  • Was Big Generator as good as 90125?
  • What about the singles?
  • Is this more like Yes music?
