Harking back to Wakeman's acclaimed 1973 debut The Six Wives of Henry VIIIThe Red Planet features 8 pieces revolving around a central subject matter. The album, produced by Rick Wakeman and Erik Jordan, entered the UK Top 40 album chart at #34 and received phenomenal media coverage and support
 
Upon being told his Prog fans were hoping he'd shoved the Prog Fader up to 11, Wakeman replied, “That could be a problem... as it's already at 14!!!”
 
“This is far and away the best thing I've done for as far back as I can remember.” - Rick Wakeman
