4 stars Reviewing & Rating any particular piece of art after 35 years , is not so easy at all . Still , taking into consideration the time factor gives more accuracy to such reviews . If i've got the chance to review & rate the Six Wives 30 years ago , i would proudly give a 5 stars & my review will be completely different . Why is that ? Strayfromatlantis mentioned a critical point in this regard , he said , quote ( not cracking at the seems ) But , every couple of years he feels like give it a shot on his turntable . In fact , i don't feel the same way about this excellent work from Rick Wakeman . I only have it on cd now , i gave it the chance for many times during this long period , but i feel that YES , it's cracking at the seems now . No doubt that this huge work from 20 talented musicians was excellent release in 1973 , and contains wonderful tracks such as Catherine of Oragan & Ann Boleyn , with amazing rythm sessions composed & arranged by rick , and perfect using of various keyboards & pianos . But unfortunatly YES , it's cracking at the seems .................................. Tracks Toni . 3.5 stars for the sake of young Toni
