Anderson Rabin and Wakeman are working on a new album. The last time Anderson and Wakeman worked on a Yes album together was Keys to Ascension 2 so Mark and I take this opportunity to think about the studio tracks which are collected on the Keystudio album.

  • Should the studio tracks have been assembled in this album?
  • How does it compare to other studio albums?
  • Should Keystudio be better known?
