Review of The Six Wives of Henry VIII submitted on 6th May 2002

I'm not surprised that your guests to this site voted this Wakeman's best. I bought the album when it was released and was quite moved by it as I am to this day. What may be surprising is given the number of albums by Wakeman, his first is his best. There is great individual expression found on this album, thankfully the record label allowed that freedom. It was released around the time of the greatest progressive rock work ever, "Tales from Topographic Oceans." I believe the mindset of the group of musicians called "Yes" was at it's highest level of understanding then.
