4 stars Where to start! This highly unorthodox album is amazing. The yes man Rick Wakeman has brought an orchestra and choir together to perform his musical rendition of journey to the center of the earth. There's even a narrator who leads you on through this amazing journey, prompting your imagination to soar with the amazing music that fills the air. This is no ordinary prog rock! This really is one of a kind, and I really was blown away by it! There's nothing silly about this album, you just have to appreciate the concept. Some of the musical passages don't quite 'make sense', but they all sound good nonetheless. This album is truly imaginative, and will not disapoint those most dedicated to the progressive rock way. This isn't for everyone, but it is for fans of Wakeman and anyone who enjoys a great musical journey. This stuff is epic! I give it a four, but it borders on five!.
