Rick's Perspective
A very messy soundtrack is all I can really say. Certainly there is some good playing and one or two really classy tracks, but once again, like all soundtracks it suffers from cohesion in order to satisfy all the parties concerned with the film.
Wakey's Verdict
If you like a bit of naughtiness in your films then get the DVD or video and if you don't then don't bother with the album either....unless of course you are a collector!
Little Known Trivia
I was in the film, playing the part of a photographer. Can you spot me?

This soundtrack albums reminds me of "1984", but it is definitely inferior compared to that one. Some of the instrumental parts are good, but on lots of them Rick brings in a horrible saxophone that does not sound good! All in all, this is not one of Rick's most important albums.

Is this a Rock version of the "New World Symphony"??? We can't say that is an original album, because most of the melodies are taken from that Dvorak's popular work (I don't understand why in the cover says:"Music composed by Rick Wakeman"). Anyway, Rick and his band sounds very well and if you have never heard Dvorak's 9th symphony , you'll find it an excellent album.

Although i am a die-hard wakeman fan, this is one of my all time favorite albums. It brings back such great memories of me in my early 20'S. THANKS, Rick. U R the man in the cape!!!!!!
