Natural Science, Jacob Ladder, not prog? It's as much of a prog album as Drama(imo). At the very least it's as much of a prog album as "moving pictures."

Good god man.. am I speaking f**king greek here..  did IQ's drop here...  did you all stop learning how to read much less listen to music haha.  I said Permanent Waves was a transition album.. 

from their 70's prog phase (Caress through Hemispheres) to the MTV/AOR/Arena Rock band they became in the 80's and beyond

sure it has some prog elements to it.. along with elements of the AOR/Arena Rock band they became thus.. hah.. the term transition album
I find your lack of Bassoon disturbing.....

With respect, none of those even come close. Permanent Waves is vastly better.

I love Yes, but Permanent Waves is better than Drama.
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

Rush by a long ways for me

Drama has its moments but lots of filler as well

Both are somewhat goofy sounding to these ears and not even approaching their best. Those Yes boys really rolled the dice though with their two new players, and the result was quite hearty. I even admire Downes' playing on the thing.

I just listened to Drama today to refresh my memory.  I take my comment back. Not really any filler.  It's better than I remembered and way  better than most of the later albums.

I still like Permanent Waves more.... but Drama gets a strong four stars !

Well, I would not say White Car, Does it Really Happen?, Into the Lens & Run Through the light as fillers, but they´re much weaker songs than those others and go also really much into 90125 direction. To me Permanent Waves has sounded always much fresher album than Drama. You can really say Drama also mostly Yes AOR-album.
