Review of 1984 submitted on 21st August 2002

1984 was Rick's last big production concept album of this era before Punk's tenious grip finally faded and Rick with it! The Overture is, without doubt, one of Rick's most enjoyable intrumentals. What people shouldn't forget is the wealth of talent associated with this album. The production for a start is excellent combined with strong lyrical content from Tim Rice and some great vocals from the guest starts. The whole work oozes quality and great musicianship from all parties concerned. I feel this is a highly underated album and deserves a higher status amongst Rick's works. But that's just my opinion!
