CD Reviews

Best prog-keyboardist solo album
Noel Pratt | Washington, D.C., and better places | 01/17/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hands down! This is the most solid art-rock record by any one of the giants of the keys. I wish I could point to something by Emerson that's this good. Rick even outdoes himself -- the music here is actually on a par (no pun intended!) with his SIX WIVES, and the vocals better than those on MYTHS AND LEGENDS. Rock momentums and classically trained delicacies all made to work in a complete and interesting "journey" (well better than than that album, BTW). When you think you can't take anymore of the crafty, meat-and-potatoes rockin' greatness, it starts over again: you discover you've got one more hunky track to go and you're thankful. That ain't excess; that's a perfect assembly of players and, most importantly, Rick having gotten on and stayed on a consistently melodious wagonwheel of progressive songwriting since his deft but spare contributions to Yes. NO EARTHLY CONNECTION has the best of everything, thus doesn't really even have the feel of a keyboardist's solo album. So glad it's back. And the production? Even the mp3s sound fabulous!"
Wakeman at his peak
Steve Arasu | Australia | 12/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Just like Yes had a "main series" of albums, No Earthly Connection is one of Wakeman's "main series".

The tracks on this album are separate but interconnected, with themes appearing, developing, then re-appearing. All this happens effortlessly, and is a demonstration of Wakeman at the peak of his creativity. The tunes are highly engaging and just flow easily. This is very melodic rock, brimming with beautiful sounds, music and tunes."
" A MASTERPIECE"
Blas D. Pulgarvidal | 04/17/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is by far the best Wakeman's album. It is basically one long song (almost 30 min) + 2 long complement songs, actually this album is intended to be listened in its entirely without interruptions. I would give this album 8 stars but because there is not an american CD version I am only throwing 6 stars, ( sorry the max is 5 ). Anyway buy this cd or mp3 download with your eyes closed, JUST BUY IT and then enjoy it. This is one of the best album from the 70's."
