John Wetton-Raised In Captivity

Frontiers Records

One listen to John Wetton's sixth solo album and you'll know that this former King Crimson guitarist has aged ever so gracefully. Seeing as Raised In Captivity features guest appearances from the likes of Steve Morse (Deep Purple), Robert Fripp (King Crimson), Steve Hackett (Genesis), Tony Kaye (Yes), Geoff Downes (Asia), Eddie Jobson (UK) and Alex Machacek (BPM) the album has an overwelming sense of maturity and refined eligence. With a resume that includes time spent in bands such as Mogul Thrash, Family, King Crimson, Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry, Uriah Heep, UK, Jack-Knife, Wishbone Ash and Asia John Wetton has proved once again to be one of the best British singer/songwriters of our time. A professional musician first and foremost John has crafted a album that should appeal to both AOR fans and Adult contemporary music lovers. Includes a bonus track "We Stay Together". 11 tracks of radio friendly rock this one is sure to be a big seller. Favorite moment has to be the simply beautiful number "Mighty Rivers" (featuring Anneke Van Giersbergen).
