I don't think it was decline, or is it what people say when a band changes line-up, is it decline? It would be decline if the songwriting of the new line-up was poor, which is not the case with Yes's Drama. 

So you've voted for Fugazi? Tongue

Drama wasn't bad but the arrival of Horn and Downes didn't really stop the band becoming self-parody whereas Fugazi sounded fresh and dynamic - a band on the up...

Self-parody? I don't see how they were mocking themselves... Confused

I've read the album was poorly received when it was released, nevertheless the album got some respectand appreciation throughout the years. 
I for one listened to the album for the first time back in early 2000s, a friend of mine had the album and I borrowed it. I loved it instantly, it's one of my favorites from Yes to be honest.

Fugazi for me. Neither album is a masterpiece, and both are generally underrated,but for me Marillion's sophomore offering has aged better than Drama.

No, I didn't mean self-mockery!  At the time, I don't recall thinking it was a 'return to form' for Yes or a new direction either... I didn't get to see the tour.  At the time 90125 seemed much more interesting but that has aged very badly...
