"Keys to Ascension 2" is a double album by the British progressive rock group Yes and was released in 1997. It is the successor to the critically-acclaimed "Keys to Ascension" 2-CD set from 1996.

Like the first seven tracks on the previous album, the first six tracks on "Keys to Ascension 2" were recorded live in San Luis Obispo, California in March 1996. The second disc features studio recordings made in Autumn 1996. Rick Wakeman wanted these studio tracks to be released with Jon Anderson's working title "Know", with the disc of live tracks thrown in as a bonus. Wakeman's preference was not honoured and by the time "Keys to Ascension 2" was released, he was no longer in the band.

"Keys to Ascension 2" features cover art by Roger Dean on an outer sleeve that fits around the package. On the sleeve, the image's predominant colour is magenta, but the booklet features the painting in its original blue colouration.

Miscellanea

"Mind Drive" was originally a concept that the band XYZ, which featured Chris Squire, Alan White and Jimmy Page, wrote and demoed in 1981.

"Lightning", Rick Wakeman's introduction to "Children Of Light", was mixed out before the album's release. "Lightning" was restored to the track on the 2001 compilation "Keystudio". The "Distant as the distant thunder..." introduction, as heard on "Keys to Ascension 2", was mixed out on the "Keystudio" version.
