3 stars This soundtrack for the Olympic Winter Games sounds pleasant, most Wakeman aficionados will be delighted about the use of a wide range of vintage keyboards. Especially the Moog synthesizer is very omnipresent (sensational, dazzling flights in the titletrack and "Montezuma's revenge") but you can also enjoy the swinging clavinet sound ("The shoot" and "Ice run"), wonderful violin-Mellotron waves ("Lax'x" and "After the ball"), tender and sparkling Grand piano ("The loser", "Lax'x" and "After the ball"), Mander pipe (church) organ ("Lax'x" and "Ice run"), a swirling Hammond organ solo in "Ice run and some Fender Rhodes electric piano in "The shoot". The eight compositions are based upon Rick Wakeman his keyboard-wizardy and the drumming from Tony Hernandez is decent. Not a very memorable, dynamic or elaborated album but I enjoyed myself. Due to the high respect and appreciation for my keyboard hero Mr. Rick Wakeman, I award this album with three stars. THIS IS A MOOG FESTIVAL!!
