Rezensionen


Von: Siggy Zielinski @


Als Abwechslung zu der für wertvoll gehaltenen Musik mal etwas richtig Grausames, so dass es wieder kultverdächtig ist: "Softsword (King John And The Magna Charter)" von und mit Rick Wakeman.

Ein musikalisches Paralleluniversum der Geschmacklosigkeiten: Nicht nur dass beispielsweise "Battle Sonata" mit kitschigem Reggae-Rhythmus daherkommt (Wakeman hatte schon immer Humor, dieser Titel zu der Musik ist wirklich zum Totlachen), das ganze Konzeptwerk leidet unter flachen Keyboardsounds, Plastikdrums aus dem Computer, durchschnittlichen Melodien und uninspiriertem Gesang von Chrissie Hammond, die es eigentlich viel besser kann. Die zahlreichen Klassik-orientierten Passagen können da auch nicht mehr viel retten.

Da trifft es sich doch ausgezeichnet, dass der in diesem Werk verklärte King John eine historisch eher umstrittene Gestalt gewesen sein soll, eigentlich ein königlicher Versager. Ein (wahrscheinlich ungewollt) perfektes Gesamtkunstwerk: Eine musikalisch ziemlich lachhafte Huldigung an einen schlechten König.
