Review of Journey to the Centre of the Earth submitted on 1st November 2002

Ladies and gentlemen, this album, together with King Arthur, stands among the ouvre of Wakeman. You may have criticism on the lyrics, on the orchestration or on how the whole concept is blended into an album. Everybody may have a different view on the overall sound of the orchestration and of that of the rock band. But I salute Wakeman in his effort in doing this remarkable piece of work. I first heard this album at the age of 10 or 12, and since then, I return to it again and again. The mere presence of this messageboard, among with many others on the web, is a proof that there is something to remember and talk about!
