5.0 out of 5 stars Good Concept Album by Rick, 1 Jan. 2006
By 
Another concept prog-rock album by Rick devoted to history of Magna Charter. Recorded in 1991. Sounds much softer than orchestrated Rick`s classic albums ("Journey to the Centre of the Earth", "The Myths and Legends of King Arthur..."). Of course, if Rick could invest in this record such funds as were invested in the movie "Gladiator", probably he could improve the sound. It`s interesting how Rick with the help of only horn player imitates Baroque style orchestration in first epic song - "Magna Charter".
Every Rick`s album got his own mystery. Mystery here is "After Prayers", probably the best Rick`s lyrical song. Meditative bluesy ballad with singing by Chrissie Hammond and beautiful organ party. Emotional and spiritual final song "Hymn of Hope".
Only these great songs worth the whole album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great remaster/reissue, 28 Aug. 2014
By 
Stephen Johnson "stevie boy" (united kingdom) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Softsword - King John & The Magna Carta (Remastered Edition) (Audio CD)
I brought this album first time round and to be honest its just had the odd dusting down to play.
But im a bit of a sucker for re packaging and re masters.Plus i had seen Rick recently at the R A H so i thought ok lets give it a go.
Wow was i surprised,what a punch the new remaster gives.It bursts from the speakers.
I never gave this album the attention it deserved and cant stop playing it.
An absolute great album,you wont be disappointed im sure.
