3 stars 3 stars. Good but not essential pretty much sums up this album, as much as I'd like to give it four stars instead.

The Arthurian theme makes a great concept and Rick stays faithful to it. The songs are generally more accessible tto the average listener than anything else Rick did in the first phase of his solo career, so this makes a good album to introduce someone to Rick's particular brand of epic prog. Most of the album is strong but not brilliant. The exceptions are Sir Galahad, which is weak, and Merlin the Magician, which is a sparkling track that condenses everything that made "The Six Wives of Henry the VIII" so wonderful into a nine minute keyboard extravaganza. Still, it's the story that the album tells that make most of it's parts add up to a interesting and listenable whole. This is a great place to start exploring Rick's music, but you'll find other albums more rewarding.
