4 stars I always admired Rick Wakeman. Sometimes he gives to us great masterpieces like "The Six Wives...", "Journey...", "Myths and Legends..." or "Return to the Centre of the Earth. However, some other times i feel surprised when he does things that are really far away from his real talent. "Out There" is a very good album, not historical, not forgettable at all. To mark a difference with previous albums, this time Rick doesnīt sound like a "keyboard player with a band behind him". Sounds like a band. In fact at the cover you can read "Rick Wakeman and the English Rock Ensamble". And the band sounds certainly strong and powerful, near to rock and roll, even near to bands like Magellan or some others of "progressive- rock". But if you want to hear the incredibly performances of Rick, donīt be sad: they are always there. Moog and melllotron are always there, playing over the powerful base. I just can say is a very good album. Is not an essential one, but deserves attention.
