3 stars One of the infamous soloalbums of prog, it is well known for its pretentiousness.

Rick Wakeman is one of my big idols, but he does become, as people were starting to call progressive rock in the late seventies, pretentious. On the keyboard front, the musicianship here is nothing but excellent. But it gets very tedious to listen to after a while. I'd wish for more guitar leads and interesting events in the music. There are many of positive things about the album though and I do enjoy it and I know that many others enjoy it as well. I'd say 3.5 stars on a prog scale
