This review is from: A Suite of Gods (Audio CD)
I've been a great RW fan since "Six Wives", but I suspect that he chucked out some bill-paying dross at times (like here) and relied on his reputation to get them sold. The front cover says "A Classical New Age Recording". That will be "classical" in the sense that the opera singer Ramon Remedios is back singing the biggest pile of crap lyrics imaginable whose only saving grace is that they (well, a few of them) rhyme.
How about this for a sample verse:
"But the herdsman, filled with pity
Could not kill the child but left him tied against a tree
Found by a peasant who took him to his masters
Where he was adopted: Oedipus they named him"
Wakeman plays a few soothing chords in the background and Remedios recites this rubbish tunelessly for what seems like forever.
Having said all that, I'm afraid I have to honestly admit that I'm not qualified to give this a thorough review as my brain gave up after track 3. My opinion: avoid at all costs. Whatever happened to the man who wrote and played classics like "Merlin the Magician"?
