The 10th studio album from the prog-rock group Yes, is their only album to feature Trevor Horn as lead vocalist. Horn took over following the departure of Jon Anderson, and Geoffrey Downes replaced Rick Wakeman. From chart hits to epic pieces taking up a side of vinyl, and even both at the same time, Yes are among of the longest lasting and the most successful of the ’70s progressive rock groups.

The 10th studio album from the prog-rock group Yes, is their only album to feature Trevor Horn as lead vocalist. Horn took over following the departure of Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman. Geoffrey Downes joined the group on keyboards the same time as Horn.

 

From topping the charts to epic pieces taking up a side of vinyl, and even both at the same time, Yes are among of the longest lasting and the most successful of the ’70s progressive rock groups, proving to be one of the lasting success stories from that musical genre. The band, founded in 1968, overcame a generational shift in its audience and the departure of its most visible members at key points in its history to reach the end of the century as the definitive progressive rock band. Where rivals such as Emerson, Lake & Palmer withered away commercially after the mid-’70s, and Genesis and King Crimson altered their sounds so radically as to become unrecognizable to their original fans, Yes retained the same sound, and performed much of the same repertoire that they were doing in 1971, and for their trouble, found themselves being taken seriously a quarter of a century later.

 

Over 35 years ago, Yes entered into a new stage of their musical evolution with the release of their first and, to date, only album featuring both Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes - better known to music fans of the day as The Buggles - as members of the band. Given how many lineup changes have taken place within the ranks of Yes over the years, it's almost quaint to think that there was a time when fans of the band found themselves worrying that there might not be a Yes anymore with the departure of Jon Anderson from the frontman position.

 

Ironically, Anderson and Rick Wakeman had been psyched to put together the band's follow-up to 1978's Tormato, but bandmates Steve Howe, Chris Squire, and Alan White were decidedly less enthusiastic, having not been entirely ecstatic with the results of Tormato, and when push came to shove, Anderson and Wakeman opted to leave the band. The remaining three members of Yes decided to keep the group going, which was right around the time that Horn and Downes were finding success with "Video Killed the Radio Star," and after the two gentlemen attended a band rehearsal and found themselves fitting in with the remaining trio, they decided to join forces under the Yes banner.

 

1980's Drama has a decidedly different feel from the Yes albums which preceded it, but it serves as a bridge between the prog-rock of the '70s and the new wave sounds which were proliferating as the '80s were kicking off, and it also created a bond with Horn which ultimately led to the further evolution of Yes when Anderson returned, Trevor Rabin joined up, and the group released 90125, produced by Horn.
