3 stars Grand epic fantasy concept album dominated with the keyboard genius of Dave GREENSLADE. Based on the wonderful world created and inked by artist Patrick Woodroffe, GREENSLADE transports us musically into his wonderful world. GREENSLADE is assisted throughout by both Phil Collins and John Lingwood on the drums and daughter Kate Greenslade who was 2 years old at the time. In many ways "Pentateuch" plays like a childhood nursery rhyme with GREENSLADE's choice of colorful themes and passages. Along the way we are treated to some nice varieties of keyboards with Mellotron, Church Organ, Polymoog, Tubular Bells, Minimoog, Clavinet, Vibraphone to name a few.

I suspect that this recording may not be for everybody, but I have always loved the fantasy concept like albums and this one is luscious. If you are lucky enough to find the BGO CD copy you will be amazed at how well the re-mastered version really sounds (Super Bit Mapping). The packaging is also superb with 48 page colored book to keep you entertained full of Woodroffe's fine art.
