4 stars Despite how some Yes fans feel about this album, I think "Drama" is one of the greats of the band's long career. It's a brilliant effort. Trevor Horn turns in some terrific vocals. The soaring harmonies on here are really great! Chris Squire's bass playing is also at its best, Howe and White are pretty awesome as usual too.

There are many gorgeous and exquisite passages to be found, though "Drama" seems to rock heavier than any other Yes album. Probably Horn and keyboardist wizard Geoff Downes' influence. Lyrically, the songs are quite dark, especially on the excellent "Machine Messiah" and the up-tempo "Tempis Fugit", two top Yes songs!

Also, check out the cool rhythm section on "Does It Really Happen?" and the stutter-stepping rhythm on "Into the Lens". You can't go wrong with this classic. Over the years, I've grown to love it more and more. 4 solid stars.
