Rick Wakeman - Retro 2006
7.4
Retro Rock
Recommended album for Wakeman fans, but not interesting enough for anyone else. Retro is an album where Rick Wakeman decided to focus solely on 70s vintage instruments like the hammond, the analog synthesizers, and the mellotron. It is a refreshing album, but some of the keyboard sounds are the hideous ones from his clunker "Rhapsodies". Other problems include some mediocre songwriting in places and the feeling that he overused these instruments sometimes.
