One of the Most Quintessential British Masterworks! Question: What do you get when you
combine classical music with a Victorian edge and progressive rock? Why,
you get one of the most brilliant pieces of musical geniusness ever put
on record! The result is "The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the
Knights of the Round Table", by one of (progressive) rock's most gifted
keyboardists - Rick Wakeman. A rather quaint, well versed British-esque
narrative sets the tone of "Arthur" in grand fashion. The rather brief
"Lady Of The Lake", the lengthy "Merlin The Magician" and the timely
adequate "Sir Galahad, all display the same introductory Victorian choir
chant and piano stylings. "Guinevere", "Sir Lancelot And The Black
Knight" and "The Last Battle" each display a unique pattern of
progressivism, which is a perfect compliment to the Victorian-styled
classical music and Shakespearean themes etched throughout this CD. If
you like these four titles by Genesis: "Trespass", "Nursery Cryme",
"Selling England By The Pound" and "A Trick Of The Tail", then you'll
most likely enjoy "Myths and Legends..." Of the four above mentioned
titles, "Selling England" would make the best companion CD to "Myths",
due to its' very British lyrical and musical nature. The shock value of
"Myths" will be surprising to many Yes fans, because the progressive
chords featured on it don't sound anything like the typically
progressive instincts provided by Yes, of which Rick Wakeman was a
member during the early and late '70's, and also during the early '90's
on the group's '91 release "Union". Also, another perfect companion CD
to "Myths" would be the Yes solo compilation title "Affirmative: The Yes
Solo Family Album", which features two Wakeman tracks, the above
mentioned "Merlin The Magician" and "Catherine Howard", with the latter
track also featured on another of Rick's solo efforts, titled "The Six
Wives Of Henry VIII". "The musical theme of "Catherine Howard" would
have fit in with the other songs on "Myths and Legends.." as well. Since
it is very rare to hear such exceptional musical genius really shine
through on "Myths", by no means should any hardcore fan of progressive
rock, or in some cases, classical music, be without this title in their
must have CD collection(s). A rare find, to say the least.~ David Hugaert, amazon.com***************
Rick Wakeman's third solo album is among his best, as he employs his
vast array of keyboards to their full extent, musically describing the
characters pertaining to the days of King Arthur's reign. With orchestra
and choir included, although a little less prevalent than on Journey,
he musically addresses the importance and distinguishing characteristics
of each figure through the use of multiple synthesizers and
accompanying instruments. "Lady of the Lake" is given a mystical,
enchanted feel, perpetrated by a more subtle use of piano and
synthesizer, while the battle of "Sir Lancelot and the Black Knight" is
made up of a barrage of feuding keyboard runs and staccato riffs,
musically recounting the intensity of the duel. But it's on "Merlin the
Magician" where Wakeman truly shines, as the whimsy and peculiarity of
this fabled figure is wonderfully conjured up through the frenzy of the
synthesizer. As one of Wakeman's most famous pieces, it is here that his
astounding musicianship is laid out for all to hear, a marvelous bisque
of keyboard artistry. The album's entirety is a sensational execution
of Wakeman's adroitness, and with vocals from Ashley Holt and Gary
Pickford Hopkins, it still stands along with Journey to the Center of
the Earth and The Six Wives of Henry VIII as one of his most astute
pieces.~ Mike DeGagne, All Music Guide
