Poll: What was the best Yes-related release of the second half of 2022? Round two

There were 20 Yes-related albums released in the second half of 2022, so instead of a single poll, we're going through them in three rounds, with the top 2 from each round going through to the final. Round 2 covered releases by or with Steve Howe, Billy Sherwood or Jon Davison. We had 59 votes, as follows:

1. Prog Collective: Seeking Peace (w/ Sherwood, Downes, Davison, Moraz) - 23 votes (39%)

2. Virgil & Steve Howe: Lunar Mist - 12 votes (20%)

3. Arc of Life: Don't Look Down (w/ Sherwood, Davison) - 8 votes (14%)

4. Glass Hammer: At the Gate (w/ Davison) - 6 votes (10%)

5= David Paich: Forgotten Toys (w/ Sherwood) - 4 votes (7%)

5= Dave Kerzner: The Traveler (w/ Sherwood, Davison) - 4 votes (7%)

7. Life on Mars: Shadows in a Jar (w/ Sherwood) - 2 votes (3%)

A clear win, then, for Seeking Peace, which out-polled the more high profile Arc of Life sophomore release. It's joined by Lunar Mist, Steve's collaboration with his late son. I voted for Forgotten Toys, a wonderful debut EP from Toto's David Paich, but I nearly voted for Dave "Squids" Kerzner's The Traveler. However, I can see most of you don't agree with me!

On to Round 3, which are all the remaining releases (including an alternative version of The Traveler as it seemed sensible to put it in a different roud). You can vote on the news website front page.
