Review of Wakeman with Wakeman submitted on 4th June 2003

There's really only one word to sum up this album - STUNNING. Beautifully recorded with everything sounding bright and lively.Caesarea is one track that proves the point showing off Rick's classical training and ability to blend in a modern tempo in the same piece of music. This should be considered a real Wakeman masterpiece - it's simply gorgeous and I never get tired of listening to this, and all the other tracks. Paint It Black could have been left off in all honesty becuase Rick really shines through best when the music is written by him, rather than a cover version of someone else's material.
