4 stars I have been singing the praises of Richard Wileman for more years than I care to remember, and now those who have wondered what I have been harping on about can find out for themselves at the ridiculously low price of just 3.99 including p&p! This is a compilation that contains pieces from Richard's albums, plus some songs that were previously unavailable. Richard creates music that is far more classical than just prog, and the music is visual in a way that is hard to describe. He uses female vocals as an instrument in their own right, and the result is something that is haunting and beautiful ? quite unlike anything else within the progressive scene, and much more in keeping with contemporary classical music. Always powerful and inspiring, this may not be the sort of music that you normally listen to, but I do highly recommend it.
