I have no objection to the recent change to include Oliver Wakeman and Benoît David atop the list. However, David's name should not precede long-standing members such as Squire, Howe and White. This, in my opinion, should take precedence over alphebetizing the list. 2tuntony (talk) 09:09, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Studio Albums[edit]

I'm pretty sure both Keys albums used to be listed among the studio albums. Now only the second one is. I believe the first should be as well. It contains just under half an hour of then-new studio material, which is more than a typical EP and at least in some genres is, or was historically, considered enough for an album. Even if we look no further than the Yes catalog, it isn't that much less than Close to the Edge. Besides, the list looks a bit silly with the "sequel" listed but not the original. I believe both volumes of KTA should be listed in both the studio and live categories. (talk) 20:26, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Keys to Ascension's total length consists of 116 minutes including 29 minutes of then-new studio materials. So the new materials are about only 25% of the whole album. In other words, only 2 songs on 9 pieces of the album are studio recordings.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:03, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

List of members[edit]

Defining who is and isn't a member of Yes is tricky, but I think listing Tony O'Reilly and Tom Brislin as 'Additional touring musicians' conflates two people who were in very different situations, and also the subheading of "Additional touring musicians" takes up far too much room.
