Drama is the tenth studio album by the English progressive rock band Yes, released on 18 August 1980 by Atlantic Records. It was their first album to feature Trevor Horn as lead vocalist and keyboardist Geoff Downes, following the departures of Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman after numerous attempts to record a new album in Paris and London had failed. Drama was recorded in a short amount of time as a tour was already booked prior to the change in personnel.

It rocks harder than other Yes albums, and for classically inclined fans, it was a jarring departure; but it was a harbinger of Yes and Asia albums to come. A newly emboldened Chris Squire lays down aggressive rhythms with Alan White, and Steve Howe eschews his usual acoustic rags and flamenco licks for a more metallic approach, opting for sheets of electric sound. Prime cuts include the doom-laden "Machine Messiah" and the manic ska inflections of "Tempus Fugit.

Drama became in one of the best prog albums of the 80’s. Drama is the tenth studio album of Yes and was released in 1980. The line up on the album is Trevor Horn, Steve Howe, Geoff Downes, Chris Squire and Alan White. Drama is a unique and special album of Yes. It’s their only album, until then, without their front man Jon Anderson. After Tormato, while the group was working to release a new studio album, Anderson left the band due to creative and financial differences. Soon he was followed by Rick Wakeman who believed that Yes couldn’t continue without Anderson’s voice.

[additional notes]
The label printed on the CD is Atlantic, but this is presumably unofficial. It says "Re-printed by VOX Humana Ricordi (Haly)". I think "Haly" is meant to be Italy, but I suspect this does not originate from Italy, more likely Russia.
