The perspective and wisdom that comes with age and life experience combined with sheer, raw talent makes Raised In Captivity one of John Wetton's best solo albums.

John Wetton brings (special guests) who is who in UK rock music in his great sixth solo album.

John Wetton is a very important artist, and this CD is an important part of his career. I highly recommend this CD to any fan of John, Asia, Yes or Crimson.

John's sincerity and passion comes poring out of these tracks. It is great to hear him in top form, as well as the outstanding talent he attracted to record these tracks.

John is joined by Icon partner Geoff Downes (Icon,Buggles Asia), Mick Box (Uriah Heep), Steve Hackett (Genesis and GTR), Eddie Jobson (Zappa, Jethro Tull, Roxy Music, UK), Steve Morse (Dixie Dreggs, Deep Purple), Tony Kaye (Yes, Circa).

Billy Sherwood (Yes,Circa)contributes mightly with his playing and co-writing on all but 2 tracks.

This is very high quality music performed by an outstanding collection of talent. Don't miss this CD. Sit back, relax, put on your headphones and enjoy!

The perspective and wisdom that comes with age and life experience combined with sheer, raw talent makes Raised In Captivity one of John Wetton's best solo albums. The album begins with a great shot of energy in the tracks Lost For Words and Raised In Captivity. The energy in this recording is offset perfectly by tracks such as Goodbye Elsinore, Steffi's Ring, and Don't Misunderstand Me. My personal favorite is The Devil And The Opera House, which is classic John Wetton. Other personal favorites include We Stay Together and The Last Night Of My Life. Unlike most rock singers his age, Mr. Wetton's voice gets better like a fine wine as is evident throughout the album. Overall, an excellent effort and well worth the purchase price.

John Wetton brings (special guests) who is who in UK rock music in his great sixth solo album. John Wetton himself is a notable rock musician (being a former member of bands Family, King Crimson, Roxy Music, Uriah Heep, UK & Asia). This CD (11 tracks) is titled 'Raised In Captivity', John Wetton presents great vocals & collaborates with legendary producer Billy Sherwood. Stand-outs tracks include "Raised In Captivity" (orchestral sound, like movie score building up to wonderful guitars) & "Goodbye Elsinore" (beautiful melody, vocals & guitars). Great tracks include "Lost For Words" (up-tempo 'noisy' rock track with great vocals & melody), "The Last Night Of My Life", "We Stay Together" (Bonus Track with great guitars), "The Human Condition", "Steff's Ring" (great resonating bass), "The Devil And The Opera House", "New Star Rising", "Don't Misunderstand Me" (great orchestral base track & vocals) & "Might Rivers " (a 'mellow' track, great duet). On overall, John Wetton is a rocking mood in this 6th solo album, bringing with him a host of guest musicians (great UK rock legends in their own right), a highly recommended CD listening.

Format: MP3 Music
Asia frontman/bassist John Wetton is back with a new solo album this year, titled Raised in Captivity. It's his sixth solo release, and this time around he's partnered with Billy Sherwood (of World Trade, Yes and Streets), who provides songwriting and recording support. The album also features guest appearances by a who's who of classic rock musicians, including Robert Fripp, Mick Box, Steve Morse and frequent Wetton collaborator Geoff Downes.

Raised in Captivity is a very enjoyable collection of melodic rock songs, but that's to be expected given Wetton's track record and the caliber of musicians involved. And of course Wetton's voice sounds terrific as always. The songs on Raised in Captivity alternate between sounding like Asia and sounding like World Trade, depending on whether it's Wetton or Sherwood writing them, but they're all good. Highlights include upbeat opening single "Lost For Words," "The Last Night of My Life" and "The Devil and the Opera House" (that one is very Asia-like), but the whole album is solid.

Fans of Wetton's previous work, particularly his work with Asia, Wetton-Downes and his earlier solo material, will not be disappointed by Raised in Captivity. It may also be a breath of fresh air for those who were less than thrilled with the two post-reunion Asia albums. There's a spark here that those albums lacked.

Format: Audio CD
"Raised in Captivity" is the brand new solo album by British prog/melodic rock legend John Wetton ("Asia", "King Krimson"). With the members of "Asia" having joined the re-united "Yes" this summer, it seemed like an ideal opportunity for Wetton to revisit his solo career.

It has to be addressed that "Raised in captivity" leans more towards the progressive side of "Asia" than the melodic rock style of "Wetton/Downes-Icon". For that matter the album features an admirable cast of renowned musicians of the genre making guest appearances here: Steve Hackett, Steve Morse, Alex Machacek and Mick Box amongst others. Though undeniably a prog-rock album, the mood of "Raised in Captivity" lightens considerably after the fifth song, to a more anthemic rock approach, evident on songs like "Don't misunderstand me", "The devil and the opera house", and "Steffi's ring"; though fundamentally different in tempos and melodies they all feature extensive choruses with minimal instrumental support-these are the songs where John uncovers his ability.

Finally there is "Mighty Rivers" which opens in ballad fashion and develops into a symphonic apocalypse-the song is actually a duet between Wetton and Anneke van Giersbergen (Ex-"The Gathering") easily amongst the most infectious songs on offer, definite to draw the listener time and time again towards "Raised in captivity". "Raised in captivity" will definitely satisfy fans of "Asia", "Yes" and "Saga" though fans of traditional AOR/melodic rock will probably require a good amount of plays to come to terms with the approach and songs on this solo release.
