3 stars Rick Wakeman has his special place in my memory because of his excellent debut album, some works with Yes and collaboration on "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" album. Then, every his next solo album became less and less interesting, and I just stopped listen them long ago. But till now time to time, at some possibilities, I still checking what happens with his music. Everyone knows he has one of the largest discog at all, so there are plenty of possibilities for extensive listening.

This Rick's album from mid-90-s is somewhere in between. The music there is still not Mike Oldfield's elevator's new age (and it is good). But to be honest, it is not too far from that ( and it is not so good). Wakeman is great keyboardist, and it feels even in such works as this album is. Keyb/synth passages get the dynamics to all music. Some guitar solos and added vocals finish the picture. Melodic keyboards based art-pop - possibly the best name of the music you can hear on this album. Vocals as well build Oldfield-like feeling.

In all, if you like Mike Oldfield works from eighties, possibly you will like this work as well. Quite professional music, but for specific listener.
