Review of Country Airs (Original) submitted on 22/02/2010

As someone who was in the habit of buying all things "YES" when this album came out, the music on it came as a complete surprise. To this day, it is one of my absolute favourite CDs. I was very confused however, when I was upgrading from my original cassette to CD. It seems retailers were also confused, as I was sold the new version in the original cover. I had no idea it had been re-recorded and to my mind the original is far superior.

Review of Out There submitted on 01/06/2017

Very rocky bits interspersed with classic Rick keyboards and choir, this is Rick at his best - had me from the start.

Review of Anderson/Wakeman - The Living Tree submitted on 01/06/2017

This is a very nice album. Almost sounds like Country Airs would've if Jon had've accompanied Rick on those long walks.

Review of White Rock submitted on 01/06/2017

Definitely worth having in the collection - some truly mesmerizing moments. I saw the film in the theatre when it was released, mainly so I could enjoy the soundtrack, which does go great with the images.

Review of The Myths & Legends of King Arthur & The Knights of the Round Table submitted on 01/06/2017

Like quite many I suspect, my first Rick album was Journey To The Centre of The Earth. This one was next and I regard both as absolute classics - beautifully constructed and performed.

Review of Live On The Test submitted on 01/06/2017

I liked the rawness of this album. It feels like you're listening to the band in pub. It also made me appreciate No Earthly Connection more, which I now regard as one of Rick's best. (Spot Ashley Holt's lines fluff on The Journey).
