5 stars It seems that most fans praise highly Wakeman's early great works like The Wives and The Journey and this album is best forgotten. For me the opposite is true. I think his early masterpieces are mechanical and monotonous compared to this delicate joyful piece of magic.

The only song that fails is the somber appropriately named Frustration which really frustrates. The rest is simply delightful, maybe, how shall I put it, "pleasing to the intellect". There are things to notice in this music and in a way Wakeman's music is very visual. It can be both the simplicity and the intricacy and it is well worth paying attention. And once you see then you can just lay back and let it happen.
