5 stars Can I just talk to Tony for a second here?

I realize I'm just another adoring fan since the early 1970's; you had me at Watcher of the Skies. And while I've always loved your choice of keyboards and your writing style and your unreal talent on the keys, I was also hoping you would finally hit a home run in the classical music arena. Your stylings and chord progressions in your prog and soundtrack works hinted at classical training, and it just seemed inevitable that you would eventually find your groove there.

Aside from owning thousands of rock and prog rock albums (and jazz and others), I've also amassed a huge classical music library over the past 25 years, so I think I might know what I'm talking about when I say that your latest album "5" is a 5. It is beautiful and emotional and energizing in a way that you composed back in your prog and film music days, but taken to a higher plain with the orchestra and choir here. I do love this album. Thanks for making it.

And please make many more wonderful albums...
