Review of Return To The Centre Of The Earth submitted on 9th July 2003

Bought my first Wakeman in '74, being 20 years of age. That was Six Wives of Henry VIII. Already collecting YES, Purple, ELP and the likes, when this music crossed my path, and I fell in love instantly. Over the years I bought every new album up until '79 and then I stopped for some reason. Rediscovered Rick in '03, with Return etc. Boy, did I miss out on a lot of beautiful stuff. This album is a masterpiece, and every time I listen to it, I discover something new. Have managed to collect about 25 albums I missed so far. Thanks Rick, for giving us so much joy, I hope you live to be a hundred in good health.
