      Definitely sounds interesting.

      Although I do question whether the concept was there first and then the songs were written to fit the concept or that the songs were written and then, those being so diverse, a concept was sought to present the songs. After all there a plenty of Art Galleries that focus on one particular style or one particular period.

        Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
        Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

          Definitely sounds interesting. Will purchase!

          Wakeman is the GOAT in my eyes. Overcame addictions when only less than 10% can succeed. Overcame failed marriages. As someone who has been involved in the animal rescue pastime I love the fact he walks the walk in this and other endeavors he pursues.

          The guy has a fantastic sense of humor and always has been polite with the fans.

          Today in his latter years he appears content and happy. Arthritis and all he still can bring it on the stage.

              It's already been released? That crept under the radar somewhat. I'll have to grab one this week. Fortunately it's payday on Wednesday...

                I think Rick printed some for the tour, I might be one of the lucky ones who got it early

                  One of my friends from the UK also got an early copy on a show too! Very interested in hearing the album myself.

                    Can't wait to hear what you think of it but the "eight unconventional vocal tracks" bit might be troublesome.

                      As long as they are better than what was on “Rock and Roll Prophet,” hopefully we’ll be ok. At least Rick isn’t doing the vocals.

                        I got my copy of the CD yesterday and have had a couple listens. I think it will take a few more listens to provide a considered view but didn’t dislike any of the tracks which is hopefully a good sign. It’s quite different to The Red Planet.

                          Got a copy at this evening's show. Haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, though.
                          Rick said the setlist for tonight's show was changed to feature only music that suits piano, following the theft of his keyboards (and big Christmas tree) yesterday. It made the show more similar to the other shows I have seen most recently, but it was good that he went ahead, including playing things he had not planned in advance. I enjoyed the evening. I was a bit surprised when Rudoloh the Red-Nosed Reindeer popped up during Catherine Howard! But it was a pleasant surprise.

                            He had keyboards stolen last year in the US too.

                            When I saw him he brought on an inflatable crocodile toy.

                            He funny.
