3 stars It is quite difficult to review an album from this great keyboard player: IMHHO, none of his work could have been related with a great album (being as a solo artist or with his good "Greenslade" work).

This work is no other. Some good keys items, for sure. I have already told that the man was gifted (who can tell the contrary) but passion is truly alien from most of his music ("Shades Of Ankh - Morpork").

Still, there are magical moments as the awesome "Wyrd Sisters" which is just a superb electronic musical partition. But very few of these items are available on this album. As if the man decided to get rid of most of his fans (since his latest efforts were quite simple).

Still, this album holds much more interesting and complex movements than any of his prior efforts. Of course, when the poor vocals enter the scene ("Wizzard"), there is only one feeling that prevails: kick them out of course (or just press next).

When one listens to the jewel "Dryads", there is only one question available: why the hell didn't this great musician produce such a fantastic number earlier on! To be honest: it is a truly moving track (little short to be honest) which deserves a separate spot for sure. THE highlight.

I can't really tell that this album is some sort of genuine prog effort. This and was quite a hype in the middle seventies, but couldn't hold on high their flag (which was a dreadful task to be honest).

To be faithful, there are little passion to be felt from this musical album. Little fantasy, little grandiose parts as we ought to expect. Just a collection of fine pieces of music. As such, I will be a delicate fan and bloody hell describe " Holly Wood Dreams" as indescribable and gorgeous song by all means.

Three stars. Thanks to some great passages.
