Ken Hensley - Anthology.
Only for completionists (0%). While "The anthology" is a highly enjoyable compilation, the title is somewhat misleading. I do not question the quality of the tracks which have been chosen, but they do not represent the balance and flavour of the album well. Free spirit", released at a time when Ken was enduring great stress in relation to his career, was a more patchy affair. The tracks here are a reasonable cross section of the album, but the desire to get something out is all too apparent in some of the songs and in the abridged nature of the overall product.
Although Hensley's solo work often utilizes an atmospheric production style similar to that of Uriah Heep, it usually tones down the heavy metal bombast to show off his skills as a songwriter. This is a plus, because Hensley has a solid knack for pairing strong, memorable melodies with intriguing lyrics: "Through the Eyes of a Child" is a heartbreaking exploration of the loss of innocence that comes.
