Prog Reviewer
2 stars When I took this album for the first time, I asked myself: Is this the same Rick Wakeman who made incredibly wonderful works in the 70s? He plays the keyboards professionally, like ever, but the music is average and bored, and not really progressive. Add to the poor music a poor singer and you'll find a forgettable album. If one great musician choose to be prolific without preserving the quality standards, something's wrong. So, don't expect with Wakeman's 80s production similar high points like his firsts works, because you'll be very disappointed. And take care: before Rhapsodies, you can buy any Rick's album closing your eyes having the guarantee of a masterpiece, but next efforts aren't in the same vein. Silent Nights is a clear example.
