Prog Reviewer
3 stars Drama marks the entrance of a new vocalist for Yes, Trevor Horn. The change isn't really all that significant or noticeable though, as the vocals are still in the Jon Anderson style. The music here is roughly the same as on Relayer but with more coherence, but all together better and more interesting than Tormato.

Every time I listen to this album, I am never able to pick out any stand out moments. For Yes, this is bad. Usually on Yes albums there are at least some catchy melodies, but everything here is entirely unmemorable. The music flows well enough, but the writing seems to be trying too hard to appeal to both progressive rock fans and pop fans; something Yes would executer far better on future albums. The only stand out track is "Tempus Fugit" which features some of Chris Squire's most solid bass playing. Other than that, I'd say that this album can be skipped without missing much.
