4 stars A perfect time where audiences were receptive to sound such as Six Wives of Henry VIII. Rick Wakeman was getting maximum publicity with his keyboard theatrics, his involvement in Yes, Yes's incredible progressive wall of sound. Also his previous work with Strawbs as well helped his cause. I always consider this to be his debut album even though Piano Vibrations was released two years earlier. It is hard to fault the album and the only reason for not giving it a five star is that I cannot quite agree with the placement of the music to each individual character. Is that important? I guess not.' Catherine Parr' has to be my favourite on this thoroughly consistent album. Four and a half stars.
