5 stars This album is rated between 1 and 5 stars so it evokes mixed emotions and impressions, from tedious narration and rather commercial to masterpiece, excellent album and highly recommended! Well, I tend to choose the 4 and 5 star side because this ablum simply touches me very much: for me this is a very compelling experience, I like the narration (in my opinion inspired and expressive) and I'm blown away by the amazing array of vintage keyboards, from the grand piano and Hammond organ to the clavinet and Minimoog synthesizers. I have to admit that I'm a sensitive and emotional person with a hugh fantasy and a preference for a bombastic and pretentious approach so the concept on this album appeals to me, you can say!! I can understand that progheads are not really pleased with this album but every session with "Journey to the centre of the earth" I let myself carry away to a progwalhalla! THANKS MR RICK WAKEMAN ON KEYBOARDS!!!
