Review of The Six Wives of Henry VIII submitted on 15th November 2003
The first true Rick's solo album is pure devotion to music. The piano play is great and the synthesizers are very mature... special attention to the Moogs, they've never sounded as punchy in other albuns as in this one. Jane Seymour is a true painting, you can almost see it when listening to the beautifully played organs. Catherine Parr is Rick's best song to me, so I'm not commenting on this one, just see for yourself. Catherine of Aragon has a very cool piano intro and very good Moog basses. It's a pity it's a short album (around 35 mins), but you will be pleased to listen to it. All the tracks are played with great emotion and passion.
