Review by Zitro
1 stars A very personal album for Rick Wakeman, but unfortunately, it disappoints on a huge level.

As the title implies, this album is dedicated to Rick Wakeman's family. Each track is dedicated to a member of his family, including pets. As a result, there are many short tracks in this album.

The album is all instrumental, and tries to portray a painting of sound for each person. It may succeed, but that does not save the album. The Family Album is a tedious, and uninteresting collection of shory little pieces.

Highlights : Nina, Kookie, Dad Let Downs : Adam, Jenna, Wiggles

My Grade : F
