2 albums I love dearly, with similar traits among them. Really hard to choose, but I'm leaning towards Drama......

I really cant listen to much what Yes made after 1974/1977... so... Camera Camera at least intrigue me the first time I heard it.

I can't give either of these turkeys a vote, I'm afraid.

Really liked this post-Anderson album. Drama gets the nod.

Second vote for Yes against Renaissance this morning, although I quite enjoy Camera Camera.

It's cool to see some folks actually appreciate Camera Camera. It really impressed me from the very first spin - is it Pop with a Proggy bent, or Prog with a Poppy bent to it ?? John Camp absolutely nails the bass, and Annie sounds as fine as ever. The rest of the band are no slouch either.

Drama is for sure among the best Yes albums, while Camera Camera is only ok in their career

A good poll to illustrate the importance of songwriting.  Drama is not spectacularly good but a decent album that doesn't veer too far outside Yes's comfort zone.  For all of the claims made as to how indispensable Anderson is, Horn does a decent job filling in.  On the other hand, while Ren try a few things on Camera Camera, they can't quite put it together and thereafter not even Annie can help salvage the material beyond a point.  Even a great singer needs at least decent songs to utilise his/her talent while good material can sail through even with decent vocals.
