This set is good. Very good. The artist is good. Very good. Unfortunately the set and the artist are inconsistant. I was looking forward to hearing Synergy's version of "Classical Gas" and could barely recognize it. Mason Williams would scratch his head in confusion and "say whu'?". On the other end of the spectrum, the cut "Ancestors" is incredible! The perfect sound for testing high dollar speakers, quality headphone and expensive soundsystems. This song alone is almost worth the price of the CDs. "Launch at Dawn" is a fine piece, too. Most of the rest of these CDs are forgettable. But perhaps it's because I've been a Rick Wakeman fan for thirty years, or Mannheim Steamroller fan for fifteen, but I'd prefer them just a little bit more. No mistake, I enjoyed about 90% this two-CD set and will for many years to come, but I firmly believe Wakeman's "King Arthur" and "Henry VIII" and Mannheim Steamroller's "Fresh Aire" and "25 Years" are far superior in technique, variety, quality and creativity. A better album would be Wakeman's "Rhapsodies", but I've not been able to find it on CD. In the acoustic olympics, Synergy and "Semi-Conductor Release 2" takes the bronze.
