Drama songs Product Information
Drama album for sale by Yes was released Feb 24, 2004 on the Rhino (Label) label. It was widely assumed that when vocalist/songwriter Jon Anderson left Yes at the end of the '70s, the band was doomed. Drama CD music Most folks forgot that bassist/composer Chris Squire was the other founding member of the band, and he had as much to do with their sound as Anderson. It was surprising enough when the band decided to continue with a new vocalist and keyboardist. Drama CD music contains a single disc with 16 songs. ...See Full Description

Great CD, from a Super Band!!!
By Randyc723 (New York)
A Yes album thankfully devoid of the overblown excesses of Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman. Easily the highlight of the Yes catalog. A shame it isn't widely regarded as the classic that it is.

For me,only a commercial change of the group (to make a little money).Remember,Yes is a BRITISH BAND.Trevor Horn isnīt Jon Anderson.The albumn is a deception.Sad,sad,sad.

Just had to respond to these reviews. Interesting that none are from the UK. Sorry but this album has no Yes "feel" to it at all. When I used to listen to Yes back then the music seemed filled with colour and images and had a "British" feel to it - sorry can't put it any more precisely than that. From Tormato onwards this was shot (even Going for the One was a bit sketchy in places - Anderson had started to lose it by then - cf his current web site - oh dear!!!). I don't hold these guys in god like status as appears to be the case from some reviews they were just good musicians who hit a peak for about 4 - 5 years and have never recovered (and never will) - whatever was in the mix has been lost and no amount of American sounding "rock" albums will ever regain it. This and albums like 90125 were laughable - Yes trying to be commercial and "current" (to quote Chris Squire at that time) despite the fact that their commercial success had come through trying to be musos. I'm not against the old boys making a pile of cash - in fact good luck to them but in my opinion they should have moved on to something a bit more mature (and interesting - they've got the talent surely) about 25 years ago instead of trying to chase their old (decrepit??) rock audience in the US (or indeed rather sad new ones following in their parents footsteps - that has always baffled me)

||First I Hated It, Now I Love It|
Back in 1980 when Yes released this album I was horrified. No Jon Anderson? He's the voice of Yes! It can't be! No Rick Wakeman? Oh well, he'll be back. But now in the 21st century I have a different outlook on this album. Trevor Horn sang well and Geoff Downes played keyboards nicely on this one. Chris Squire (bass), Steve Howe (guitars) and Alan White (drums) truly shine on "Drama". I love every song from the original album. And the Rhino remaster has ten bonus tracks! The single edit of "Into The Lens" is a waste. It was very badly edited. The single version of "Run Through The Light", however, is a nice alternative mix that focuses more on the keyboards. "Have We Really Got To Go Through This" was not completed with a Trevor Horn vocal, but the result is an instrumental track that highlights Steve Howe's guitar work. "Song No.4 (Satellite)" seems to be a workout between Squire, White & Howe that's interesting but doesn't really go anywhere. Then there are two "tracking session" recordings of "Tempus Fugit" (with Horn messing the words up) and "White Car". The last four bonus tracks are leftovers from the album before "Drama" that never was.Using producer Roy Thomas Baker, Yes (with Anderson & Wakeman still in the band) went to Paris to record the follow up to "Tormato". Presented here are "Dancing Through The Light", "Golden Age", "In The Tower" and "Friend Of A Friend" from the aborted sessions. Jon & Rick lost interest and quit the band.
