I was thinking about this the other day. I was wondering what would it sound like if there was an album that was released by Yes or Yes related members in between Drama and 90125. Yes, I know 90125 was built from the ground up by former members of Yes and not intended originally to be Yes but for the sake of argument let's pretend there was an unreleased album that had the lineup of say Downes, Rabin, Anderson, Squire and White. So what I'm wondering is what actual albums sound like they would qualify for this? Moving Pictures by Rush? Nah, not really. An album by Saga maybe. What do you guys come up with?

It'd probably be a b*****d love child album that everyone skips LOL.

For real, I have no idea. I love Drama and enjoy 90125 so I'm probably the wrong one to ask.

Both those albums are pretty sweet, so an amalgamation of the two would be ay-ok around here

Drama is one of my favourite Yes albums, and 90125 one of my least favourite. Iím struggling to imagine how a combination of the two might sound. 😳🤔🤷🏻‍♂️

Owner of a Lonely Heart was the song that introduced me to the music of YES, and 90125 was the only YES studio album I ever Owned on vinyl, so it has a special place in my Lonely Heart. Heart
 
As for the Drama album, Does It Really Happen that an album can completely pass you by at the time of its release? Yes, It Can Happen. Smile

I think the short answer is if Trevor Rabin is involved it would sound a lot like 90125 unless they agreed to split up the song writing. That's know a knock on him, but from what I heard he's a bit of a control freak.

I wouldn't say it would sound like this, but a good parallel might be Genesis' Abacab album.

It happened, and it's a great album.
