Review of Chronicles of Man submitted on 11/09/2000
If Rick had performed this in the time of Medieval Britain he would have blown them away with this one. For us it awakens the spirit of history. A fine performance of classical meets rock virtuosos embellished with Rick's typical trills and frills with carefully crafted interlacing of majors and minors. One or two surprises though, a sprinkling of synthesised strings and possibly a mix up of titles between The Seige and Castle Rushen. If any of us ever wondered if Rick might have come from another planet, then this album confirms it! I aspire to his mastery of the instrument.
