3 stars First album with Rick Wakeman - for good and bad. He bring some his great keyboards passages and bombastic symphonic chamber feeling at the same time. Album's opener Roundabout is great,but heavily overplayed composition, which if fact made all the album almost additional material to feel the space.

I always have mixed feeling to this release - some very good moments, and some below average (I am speaking about high Yes average) standard. Possibly it sounds strange, but The Fish is most interesting composition on this album for me.

In all some really great musicianship and excellent pieces, but doesn't really work as whole album. Collection of good and far not so good in one package.

Still really great musicianship, so my rating is 3.
