The songs have a perfect balance, they go from the epic Arthur to the nostalgic Last Battle. Every progressive fan must have a copy. Tina Hansen on 27th March [Other reviews]. This album is definitely "fit for a king.
Samantha Dawn on 5th February [Other reviews]. As a child I listened to this album. My imagination was brought to life and I was captured by its magic. I encourage anyone to listen to the album in its entirety. Everytime you hear it, something new will delight! After playing 2 cassettes to their death and being told I could not get a replacement I am overjoyed to be able to yet again listen to it again, on CD!
Your purchase will be its weight in gold. You will not be disappointed. Alexander Lopez on 5th October [Other reviews]. This is an album I'd choose to make a "Les Miserables" style theatre show, complete with dialogues and dances. Although Metallica and Scorpions have done this "rock band meets the symphonic orchestra" gig recently, LP you purchase "The Myths and Legends This album is very English and pompous, that's why I like it a lot.
It has also good humour on it, at some places it reminds me always of Monty Python's Holy Grail Movie and it's also very emotional: In "The Last Battle", where the narration begins, I always nearly have to cry Here lies King Arthur Thanks, Rick. This album is a great collage of orchestral music and progressive rock.
It is one of the greatest LPs that I've ever listened to. Solo partitions by Wakeman are amazing; they take you to another world. With this album, Rick Wakeman truly gives a new dimension to the King Arthur legend. The music is so bravely formed, that it's hard not to get dragged into the realm only Wakeman is able to create. The combination of rock and classical music is just perfect.
There are not many artists who can give sounds to legends, Wakeman makes the exception and proves he's the true Keymaster. If Merlin had transformed himself into a song, this is what he Rick Wakeman - The Myths And Legends Of King Arthur And The Knights Of The Round Table (Vinyl sound like This particular album is one of Rick Wakeman's finest works. Although it was regarded in the mid '70's as a colorful spoof with mediocre quality, I must thoroughly disagree. In studying the themes and contrapuntal texture, not to mention the addition of a stylized classical rock mixture, this album should be re-released and marketed for a new generation of music connoisseurs that appreciate true musical talent and not merely a beat with clever words thrown in.
Guinevere is my favorite track as well. Reniet Ramirez on 12th April [Other reviews]. It's a strange album if you were expecting to LP Rick the way he plays on YES. But take the time, it's worth it. It's a very nice way to learn the history of King Arthur It's definitely a classic! Lancelot is great too, although I prefer the version on King Biscuit, which contains additional trumpet melodies and so on Phill Emmerson on 21st February [Other reviews]. Who so pulleth out this album from the record shelves shall be the true born listener of a classic album, this is an album everyone should have, reviews do not do Arthur justice, just buy it and listen.
Stephen McKinley on 25th January [Other reviews]. Although this album is now a quarter of a century old, it still sounds as good now as the day I first heard it all those years ago.
Wakeman gave imagery to the Arthur mystic that no film or miniseries has ever been able to create. Every track is still a winner, but Merlin is, and probably always will be, one of the best instrumentals of last century.
A must have album for all! Sanjeev Raman on 25th November [Other reviews]. Picked up this album today along with "Journey Earth" and "The Six wives It is truly mindblowing.
Calling it brilliant may be considered an understatement. Though I don't really like the vocals on it. They sound tired. But on the whole, a masterpiece. Ben Jordan on 29th January [Other reviews], Rick Wakeman - The Myths And Legends Of King Arthur And The Knights Of The Round Table (Vinyl. The King Arthur album is another triumph for the greatest ivory-tickler in the world.
Another concept album, with a stirring opener which attempts quite well to provide a medieval-meets-modern musical blend. However for me it is 'Merlin' which truly defines the album, with its melodic precision and stylisic fusion - with a madcap honkytonk interlude. I saw Rick play this track on a video of a Australian concert and you can't help but marvel at the man's gift, which for me 'Merlin' perfectly demonstrates.
The other tracks are good too, but not in the same league as 'Merlin' and 'Arthur'. And the Album) are again too weak for my liking as with Journeybut don't let that put you off - a worthwhile addition to your collection. Murat Selcuk on 16th September [Other reviews]. Bjorn Olaf Syvertsen on 4th December [Other reviews]. This used to be my favourite Rick Wakeman album, but now "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" has passed it. The good thing about this album, is that some tracks are really great "Arthur", "Sir Galahad" and "The Last Battle"while others are not that good.
The style is however very fascinating, and being a medievalist myself, I clearly delight in the lyrics, the cover and the "text book". Tom Brenny on 24th September [Other reviews]. The perfect marriage of rock with orchestra to create the definitive portrait of Arthur.
Monumental music worthy of this great king. The moog sounds dated, but the music and orchestrations are timeless. The closest to a perfect album I've seen! John Kennedy Mixon on 16th May [Other reviews].
This album is a triumphant artwork! One can close their eyes and picture the unfolding of personalities and perspectives of King Arthur, his Knights and, of course, Merlin. Rick has managed to intertwine the sounds of the medieval times with a touch of classical and careful use of modern instruments. This is a masterpiece in every sense of the word! Eduardo Valle on 29th March [Other reviews]. This is Wakeman's masterpiece.
The consolidation of Symphonic Rock. The atmosphere created with orchestra and choir is wonderful. The music turns around a theme, being variations of this theme. Wakeman shares his space with other musicians and orchestra allowing the music to flow without excess of virtuosity.
I was The solo was kept. Rich Deem on 2nd March [Other reviews] I think it's time for a review. Caroline Locke on 20th August [Other reviews] Fantastic orchestration. Fernando Lantery on 24th September [Other reviews] Absolutely amazing! Col on 6th December [Other reviews] I can never listen to this album without remembering that amazing gig at Wembley on ice. Carlos Fernandez on 6th July [Other reviews] The best gift in my life.
