Voted for Drama but these two albums aren't a big deal.

Drama is ok...but, come on, GFTO is a freakin' classic!
The real poll should have been Tormato vs Drama (I'd vote Tormato)
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

This was a very tough choice for me. In some ways Drama is better because it's a tighter album and it sounds stronger in some ways with more "balls." I have always thought musically it was one of their strongest. Going for the one almost falls apart at the seams in places and parallels suffers from a sparse sound due to Wakeman's poor choice of abandoning the synth for the organ. I also think turn of the century is a little flat although I like the instrumental section. However, in the end I still voted for GFTO mainly for "awaken." Wonderous stories and the title track though are two of the most underrated Yes songs in their catalog so that counts for something also. Another deciding factor for me is that Jon Anderson didn't sing on Drama. While Trevor Horn did a fine job on Drama I prefer Jon's singing.

Both. I'm in the minority of loving Tormato and 90125 as well. After that they started diminishing in quality but every album still had a few great tracks until the very end at least

It is a lot tighter than I thought it would be! Drama is better than Tormato...but still several magnitudes below GFTO. Still. That is subjective analysis for you...
