From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars The most jazzy thing I have ever been listening to, is National Health. Fusion is a type of music I have been avoiding like the plague itself. Hence; I am a novice here. I only got this album because it is recommended by Prog Archives. And rightly so !! It is my understanding that Romantic Warrior was Chick Corea's attempt of dipping in and perhaps cashing in on the big progressive rock scene at that time. That was when ELP and Yes was the big names. Yes, once upon the times, the dinosaurs ruled this planet......... In any case; the result is an album with a massive crossover appeal to those of us who are more into the Canterbury scene and symphonic rock than fusion. The musicianship is staggering here and really impresses even a tone-deaf person like myself. The music is superb too. In particular; the title track and Duel Of The Jester And The Tyrant is superb. I love that jazzy parts of that latter songs and I am afraid it is turning me into a jazz-head too. HELP !!! This is most certainly an album well worth checking out. It is an excellent addition to anyone's music collection.

4 stars and a big thank you to Prog Archives for pointing me in the direction of this album.
