Format: Audio CD
Drama is an anomaly of sorts, and the only Yes album not to feature vocalist Jon Anderson. For this reason some Yes fans are quick to dismiss the album outright. Indeed, the departure of Anderson and keyboardist Rick Wakeman in early 1980 left the remaining band members in a quandary, and the solution to their problem led to one of the more unlikely 'mergers' in rock history. Replacing the departed members were vocalist Trevor Horn and keyboardist Geoff Downes, who as a duo called The Buggles had enjoyed a huge hit with '"Video Killed the Radio Star"' (later the first video ever aired on MTV). Unlikely as that merger may seem, the new members provided a shot in the arm that Yes sorely needed, and the results on Drama are actually quite impressive. Rather than being a radical departure from the earlier Yes, the album takes the best qualities of that earlier prog-rock version of the band (while doing away with some of its more self-indulgent aspects) and infuses them with a brighter, fresher sound, no doubt brought to the mix by Downe's' and Horn''s more pop-oriented sensibilities. Although the merger itself was short-lived, and Anderson later rejoined the fold, Drama marks an important turning point in the history of Yes. Rather than an aberration, the album should be seen as a vital link between the old Yes and the new, as it paved the way for the band''s triumphant 1984 return with the album 90125.

A change: the coda to "Does It Really Happen" no longer comes with the quiet swell, but just starts right in at full volume. And what's with putting in those Paris session tracks yet leaving out the best one -- i.e., where's "Tango"?!?!? God help us, what more understanding is required of me today... And they put in a couple of sucky track-throughs but also leave out "Flower Girl" from those same sessions. The main album: Not a big improvement on the 1994 remmie but such a fantastic record all the same. Five stars in my eyes for it.

A much better recording than many fans and critics thought. Lots of off-time arrangements and extended workouts. The additions of vocalist Trevor Horn and keyboardist Geoff Downes (yes, founder Jon Anderson and mercurial keyboardist Rick Wakeman were out) work surprisingly well, and for anybody whining about the lyics, they're no more obscure than anything Anderson's ever written.

For most fans, Yes without lead singer Jon Anderson is a horror thought. But as history has shown, Anderson did leave the band after the tour for the "Tormato" album, with keyboard wiz Rick Wakeman in tow, and they were replaced by the duo known as The Buggles---vocalist Trevor Horn, and keyboardist Geoff Downes. Their only album with Yes, 1980's "Drama," is a surprisingly good album. While no one on God's given Earth can sing like Jon Anderson, Trevor Horn sings close enough (albeit in a *slightly* lower register), and he takes Anderson's place at the mic just fine. These days, Trevor Horn may be to Yes what George Lazenby is to the James Bond movies (i.e. he only made one, *and* he was filling a very large pair of shoes), but give the guy some credit: he was good! Geoff Downes, meanwhile, is a more than capable keyboardist for this classic English rock outfit, and he & Horn slot in alongside Chris Squire, Steve Howe, & Alan White very well."Drama" is a very short album---just 35 minutes---but in those 35 minutes is some great Yes music, the highlights for me being "Does It Really Happen?," "Into The Lens," and "Tempus Fugit," all top-notch, first-rate Yes rockers. Seriously, with all due respect to the great Jon Anderson, I would've been quite happy if the "Drama" line-up of Yes had decided to continue. And they might have---by all accounts, they were received quite well by U.S. audiences on the tour for the album. Unfortunately, British & European audiences were not so kind, and, subsequently, Trevor Horn got cold feet about continuing on as the group's frontman. Well, I can't really blame him.Read more ›

Drama(1980). Yes's tenth studio album.
Prior to 1980, Yes saw times of great success in the 70s, their main key points being the early 70s with Fragile(1972) and Close To The Edge(1973), and the late 70s with Going For The One(1977). Afterwards, the band recorded Tormato(1978) which although an interesting album, wasn't nearly as inspired and didn't fare quite as well as previous outings. The recording process created such high tension among the band that when they went back into the studio in 1979, the band was separated into two opposing sides: The Squire/White/Howe side, and the Anderson/Wakeman side. This caused Anderson and Wakeman to both leave the band, leaving the others to look for replacements. It wasn't as big of a deal losing Wakeman because he had jumped the ship at an earlier point in the band. The real problem was replacing Jon Anderon, THE VOICE of Yes and one of the two most Yes-like bandmembers.
Enter vocalist Trevor Horn and keyboardist Geoff Downes, two goofy looking guys that formed the Buggles, a new wave band that previously created the smash hit 'Video Killed The Radio Star'. All five formed the lineup for 1980's Drama album. The main consensus I've gathered from the fans was that this album was bad because of the lack of Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman, so I avoided getting the album for a while. I was worried that Drama would never be as great as other Yes albums. While it's no Relayer(1974) or Close To The Edge in terms of progressiveness, at the same time it's actually quite good on it's own terms. No, make that INCREDIBLY GOOD! While Horne and Downes aren't exactly the best bandmembers to circulate in and out of Yes, they offered a much needed outside contribution that was absent on Tormato.
