Boring, boring, boring. Put that and "Echoes" together, and you've got enough material for a good 5 minute song...
i really love Awaken like many ones in here. The fact that Rick Wakeman said he doesn't like this album would somewhere mean that he loves it. He is a 70s artist. It's just like an improvisational album and he doesn't like it to be shown as an album i guess. That's why he always try to add many stuffs each time he plays one of the 4 songs.
this album is a prog rock fight among many prog rock listeners and critics. Some are adoring it as i do, some hate it.
we're all Rick_Wakemen...
