Romantic Relaxing Sad Airs
Sergey Lenkov | Mother Russia | 12/31/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Night airs... Night tunes... Nocturnes!
Sad, soft, elegiac, meditative music, played by Rick on pianoforte. "Night Airs are... made for the imagination, allowing listener to paint pictures to music", - writes Rick.
"The Sad Dream", "Twilight", "Night Owls"... The music fits the titles. If you want to be in romantic mood - listen to this album. It would remind you nocturnes by Field.

Depends on the mood

"This is one of Rick Wakeman's more New Age-y albums and as such will not appeal to some of his traditional prog fans. It's mood music so don't expect much in the way of musical narrative or thematic development. The mood is nocturnal hence the title, but it's a quiet night all round. The piano is gentle and pensive, and for me the tracks sound better in isolation than played together all the way through which indicates that the music does become repetitive. I find myself wishing for a few more changes in key or tempo, but I guess the purpose of this album is to retain the mood rather than disturbing it, so I won't call that a criticism. If you're after some mood piano that you want to listen to while doing something else or getting away from the traumas of the week, this is probably for you. If you're hoping for Wakeman synthesizing a la Six Wives, don't bother. If you want a stronger offering from Wakeman's classical piano repertoire, then buy Heritage Suite instead."
