4 stars When you're totally lost in Rick Wakeman's discography, and you don't know which album suits you best - try this one. I still appreciate "The Six Wifes" and "The Myths..", but this one is different. Rick Wakeman accompanied by his son Adam, ex Landmarq/ Threshold vocalist Damian Wilson and powerful guitarist, delivers a fine album. All of the tracks included are well known from Mr Wakeman's earlier recordings, and here we have them collected in new and refreshed versions. We have even a new version of "Starship Trooper" here. Keyboard solos are amazing - it's not just plain piano tinkering, vocals are strong, and the rest od the band provides a fine preformance as well. "Out Of The Blue" is very similar to his later album "Out There", issused two years later. Both are quite surprising, and give fresh air to Mr Wakeman's collection. Recommended!
