3 stars It will come as no surprise to learn that a Nolan and Wakeman CD contains a lot of keyboards, but there is much else to enjoy on this solid, if unspectacular concept work. The excellent playing of the two stars, plus others such as Pete Banks, is held up by the rhythm section of Pendragon's Peter Gee and Tony Fernandez from Rick's band on the drums. Vocalists include Tracy Hitchings and the lugubrious narration is from Wakeman Senior himself.

Obviously this is a concept album based on the Lewis Carroll poem, the production is powerful and this is an enjoyable listen for fans of the Wakemans and neo- prog bands such as Pendragon. It suffers slightly in places from "cheesy" keyboard sounds and I'm not too keen on the vocal style of Ms Hitchings. A solid 3-star "rock opera" album.
