I like diddly-like this album, it's entertaining, it's rocking at the right places and the keyboard textures are good. Hey, Trevor Horn fooled me alright with his voice (especially in the track Run through the Light) and Downes is more than qualified to wear Wakeman's shoes. This had to be a great lifting for the late 70's Yes, with the ego wars leading the band to the looney bin. So what's the freaking fuss about then?

Yes suffers of the same syndrome that Kiss, Styx, Genesis or Ultravox suffered: the original line-up desease. Who cares if Anderson is not there? Many do. I would not personnally see Geddy Lee leaving and having Jusin Hawkins singing 2112 (although I'm super interested to hear what it could be!). Benoit David showed the world how it's done with dignity and grace, so why not Horn? I'm sad that the critics drawed me away from this decent record for so long, claiming 'it's not what it used to be' blah blah blah.

Pish Posh. If you like Yes you will find lots of goodies inside Drama, even more than some other Yes attempts! The vocals are top of the line, the keys are great, the songs are catchy. I'm sold.

What is this?! Star Trek? We have people quarelling who's better? Kirk or Picard?! Anderson or Horn?

Why not Bosco or Ovaltine?
