4 stars I'm even going to jump on the Drama bandwagon for a bit. At the urging of a friend, I picked up Drama a few weeks ago and I think it's a brilliant disc! I think purists have a hard time getting passed the fact that Anderson isn't singing lead (Wakeman wasn't a big deal because this was...what...his second time exiting the band?); however, if one can look past that, Drama is a great Yes disc.

If anything, I think the biggest change is the sound of Steve Howe on Drama--especially at the very beginning of "Machine Messiah". I had to double check the liner notes to see if that was, indeed, Howe.

It might be easier for a purist to now give it a listen, given that Anderson has come back and remained with Yes (even with that classic lineup) subsequent to Drama. Just for me personally, I'm really glad to have it in my collection. My only complaint is how short it is.

E-Dub | 4/5 |
