3 stars Difficult to get hold of now, this album was produced shortly after the release of "Going for the One" and Wakeman sounds revitalised here. The church organ used on "Judas Iscariot" is the same as "Awaken"; the style is similar to "Six Wives", all instrumental, except for the joke track, "The Breathlyser" featuring Bill Oddie on vocals which now sounds distinctly unfunny, for all sorts of reasons. "Birdman of Alcatraz" has a great melody with layers of piano but the best track is perhaps the pacey "Chamber of Horrors". A solid 3 stars.
