3 stars $9.99 CDN for a piece of brilliance...

I had no idea this album would be so good. Perhaps it's due to the surprise, but I loved this album. Rick Wakeman is among the best Keyboardists in prog, and outside it. He proved this with his work with Yes, but here he truly confirms it. There is some amazing musicianship, aside Wakeman. But this album's greatest strength is its writing. Wakeman was a genius at writing. Catherine Howard is absolutely beautiful, and still rocks out without spoiling its poetic atmosphere. The other tracks have their moments, as well. Unfortunately, some songs sound tacky, and a little bit pretentious. Another fault is it's mere 36 minutes in total length leaves you wanting more. Overall, very innovative, very recommended.
