3 stars This famous solo album by Rick has an imaginative theme from Britain's history. The portraits of this psychedelic warlord's wives are presented as nice instrumental keyboard driven prog rock tunes, and this is a quite accessible record. If your date for example likes classical music and old rock, playing this record shouldn't raise much objections. But I must admit that this album never grew as a big personal favorite of mine. Maybe there are not that deep emotions and essential ideas in it? But it's still a good and worthy classic album. There's also a big group of guest musicians visiting this record and at least fans of BILL BRUFORD should check this out, as he plays drums on many of the tracks.
