3 stars Tales of Topographic Oceans! the Wakeman way!

I mean it has few long songs, it drags a bit, and it is a little out of this world like the Yes Album.

Music Reincarnate 6/10 : This is a very long epic that well ... is longer than it should be in my opinion.It actually feels like Abbey Road's side b, since it feels like a bunch of songs put together in one. The vocals are mediocre like always, but the musicianship is decent. Some melodies are memorable and pretty, especially the "wait wait look at the sun" one. After the song changed many ways, they are heard again at the end of the song.

Prisoner 7.5/10 : I can't help but be amazed at Rick Wakeman's keyboard work in this track, and the chorus is catchy in an odd way.

The Lost Cycle : 7/10 : Starting with a very good synth, and good musicianship all the way, this is a strong closer in this album.

I do not recommend this album, unless you are a Wakeman fan. The wakeman site put this album I think on the top 5 of the list based on voters. It is possible that I do not comprehend the art of this album.

My Grade : C

Zitro | 3/5 |
