3 stars If you want pathetic sympho-art-prog rock in style of "King Arthur" - leave this album and take something else from immence discography of Rick. If you want good music from Rick - listen to it. Music was written in the end of 70s after Rick left Yes. Rick tried to parody style of Buggles and wanted to release this record under pseudonym KUDOS but that's not happened. The original album was released in 1982. So don't take it too seroius. Here we are having CD edition - "Rock'n'Roll Prophet Plus" (1991). Original tracks are mixed with new ones recorded by Rick in the 80s. The result - light funny album. By the way "Alpha Sleep" is one of the best instrumental tracks by Rick. Really fantasy music. Very impressive. "Spy of 55" is quite funny track . Album creates good and positive mood. Truely, one of my favourite albums by Rick. If you are having good sense of humour and love analogue keyboards sound by Rick - it's your album.
