5 stars This album gets a really bad rap. Yes purists condemn it for being post original line up and consider anything past Going for the One a waste of time.

I own all Yes albums save for a few later ones (Open your Eyes and The Ladder). Drama is easily my favorite Yes. Geoff Downes brought a great sound to the band. Very dark and futuristic, and the song titles bear the appropriate names 'Machine Messiah and Into the Lens'.

The dark and barren melodies on this album are very unique compared to any other Yes release and are absolutey beautiful at times. The arrangements are complex and powerful. Trevor Horn's voice sounds very close to Anderson's at times and he delivers perfectly. I highly reccomend this album to anyone wanting top notch Progressive Rock.
