Review of Rick Wakeman's Greatest Hits submitted on 4th October 1999
Oh dear. One of those, "If you've heard the original - don't bother with this!" albums. I was sorely dissappointed only because I have the originals - losing Jon Anderson was like losing your fingers (- you can eat but its a struggle!) I liked the updated sounds, but the vocal tracks have been replaced by a feedback lead guitar sample, which desperately needed some pitch bend and vibrato to add the human touch. Unfortunately, this album sounded like it was produced by my XGMidi card. Still, after listening to it, I did want to buy my Allied Carpet!
