4 stars Rick Wakeman is one of my favorite all-time artists, as you can imagine my nickname is maybe childish but is like a tribute to him, i love his unique style he is a god of keyboards and he was one of the few artist i knew when i discovered this site, obviously knowing Yes first than his solo career.

Later a friend of mine lend me journey to the centre of the earth and i fell in love with it, so i was recommended to listen to this album which was described to me as one of his bests albums, and it is true, this is excellent it has magnific orchestral arrangements and a very classic style, i can imagine all the characters involved in this album, i refer to the song titles you know, Arthur, Lancelot, Guinevere etc, which are the reason of this album, the music is excellent obviously what caught my attention was Wakeman´s keyboard playing, but the guitar arrangements are also good and a powerful drums are present here, the vocals are probably not the best, but good anyway, there is alos narration during the songs.

Merlin the Magician is one of the best songs he has composed andprobably my favorite, it shows his superb keyboard playing making changes every minute, Guinever is another of my favorite songs here and the last battle is also great, you will love this album if you give it a chance, not a pasterpiece bot surely recommendable for everyone, 4 stars.
