3 stars When I listen to Drama I'm always thinking: ' Why is the rest of the album not as good as the first song?' The opening track "Machine Messiah" is one of the best songs from Yes. Of course not as brilliant as "Close To The Edge" or "The Gates Of Delirium" but a masterpiece. The guitar-riff is very hard and dark but also powerful and just awesome. I love it. Unfortunately are the other songs not as good as the first one. It seems for me that the guys from Yes had an brilliant inspiration and wrote a new song (Machine Messiah) and (to made a new album for it) they had to wrote fast some other uninspired songs too. The tracks are not very bad but also not very good. You can listen too it but you will never arrive other spheres while listening.

All in all I think if every song on Drama would be as good as the first, this album could rival to "Close to the Edge". But so it's for me just "Good, but non-essential".
