Review of 1984 submitted on 28/12/2017
I bought "1984" circa 2000 (as a younger fan; I was 18) having discovered Rick via Yes. I took a chance on it not knowing anything other than Jon Anderson contributing 'The Hymn'. Like many other reviewers I have to say I happily disagree with Grumpy Old Rick! It's a fine album - dated for sure and cheesy in spots but that's what makes it fantastic! I told Rick the same when I met him after a show in Long Island, NY in October 2003 when he signed it for me. Upon presenting him with my copy he said "Well at least you have the Japanese import you can get more for it!" Haha. It proudly hangs on my wall to this day and I genuinely love the album. Give it another try Rick!
