2 stars And here, it marks the beginning of Wakeman's sacrifices of art for quantity. It seems here that wakeman is not really trying his best, and some of the songs sound like TV commercials. IT also marks the beginning of poor keyboard sounds.

Sorry Wakey.

The album starts ok with a song with vocal effects, but then it contains loads of mediocre tunes in the first disc (exceptions being Rhapsody in Blue, and The Pulse)

The second disk is better, and has decent tracks like sea horses (pretty classical song), March of the Gladiators (with a great coda), and of course Summertime (a brilliant cover) Do not buy this disk, unless you want to collect Wakeman's discography ... mmm ... wouldn't that take forever?

My Grade : D
