4 stars I started Yes in reverse, first i heard 90125 a year after it came out then, Drama. Even trough i'm a huge fan of the 71' to 77' area of Yes, i really like Drama, in fact it's one of the album i tend to listen the most from Yes. I think what i really like about this album is the fact that Chris Squire is very present on all the songs, i'm a big fan of the baas sound of Squire :) He really shine on "Does it Really Happen?" and my favorite of the album "Tempus Fugit". "Machine Messiah" starts off the album in a very strong way, Howe is really a master in this track. Travor Horn may not be the strongest vocalist or Jon Anderson but, with the help of Squire on vocals he did a very good job in here, his tone is not too far from the voice of Anderson. I have to specify that i like the "I am a camera..." part in "Into the Lens" even trough it's not the best parts of the album. Like i said, for me "Tempus Fugit" is the highlight of the album with Squire playing one of is best bass parts in his carrer and the famous parts when Travor Horn says "YES!"

Yes is a major band and this album deserves 4 Stars, not a masterpiece but a fine addition to your progressive collection.
