Review of Chronicles of Man submitted on 11th September 2000
If Rick had performed this in the time of Medieval Britain he would have blown them away with this one. For us it awakens the spirit of history. A fine performance of classical meets rock virtuosos embellished with Rick's typical trills and frills with carefully crafted interlacing of majors and minors. One or two surprises though, a sprinkling of synthesised strings and possibly a mix up of titles between The Seige and Castle Rushen. If any of us ever wondered if Rick might have come from another planet, then this album confirms it! I aspire to his mastery of the instrument.
