Dear reader,

If you're reading this you'll already have an interest in buying this. I'm no rock journo but I'd like to make a few points about this wonderful album which is now tied as my album of the year alongside Anathema's 'We're Here Because We're Here'....

1. This is an album of epic scope and ambition - although many of the songs are lengthy they will captivate within a couple of listens.

2. This is a musical journey, and is superb at capturing many moods and atmopheres - it's bombastic, it's melancholic, it's euphoric, it's fargile, it's thunderous, it's poignant...it's thoughful and melodic.

3. In addition to the usual 'rock ' instrumentation it's features the additional joy of Daisy Chapman's beautiful piano and voice (on Of A Lifetime) and Charlotte Nicholls's haunting cello...tastefully placed within the flow of most of the songs.

4. CPB again pay close attention to the detail and craft of the SONG...you'll find no guitar wankery/shredding or uneccesary keyboard heroics..NOT A NOTE IS WASTED. The music is layered beautifully.

5. The main instrumental melody in Bastogne Blues featuring viola, cello and piano is so gorgeous it's worth the admission price alone.

6. This is approx 45 mins of music to become completely absorbed in...often cinematic in it's breadth

I urge you to buy this album ...CBP are most usually pigeonholed as post/progressive rock...to my ears they sound nowt like the post rock bands you'll regard as genre heavyweights and have nothing in common with the sometimes overblown excess of bands like Yes or Dream Theater (no offence meant)but could easily transfix fans of Pink Floyd or mid period Porcupine Tree or Anathema. Also catch a show when you get the chance...the band expands to 8 musicians in it's live form and create a wonderful sound and spectacle.

Press 'add to basket' now...you won't regret it

Crippled Black Phoenix' album I, Vigilante is uneasy to categorize. The band produces on this album mostly a dark sound but ends with a very happy sounding song. The opening track "Troublemaker" is a mixture of quiet heavy guitar riffs combined with the psychedelic sound of the young Pink Floyd. The second track is an nearly 11 minute long epic called "We Forgotten Who We Are". The track starts like a smooth rippling brook and builds up to threatening wild river. At the end of the track it flows seamless into the third track "Fantastic Justice" which has the sound of a majestic river. Track 4 "Bastogne Blues" starts with spoken words from an (English?) soldier about a German soldier he had to kill. His words are larded with spooky dentist-like sounds. It's the central epic (12 minutes) from this album and is a track that "grows" the more you listen to it. The fifth track "Of a Lifetime" is a ballad-like rock song (more or less in the vein of the band "Boston") it sounds completely different from the other tracks. The final track is in time the shortest (2:31) and it's called Burning Bridges and it doesn't seam to fit in the album. It sounds like the psychedelic Brazilian band "Os Mutantes" on their album "Technicolor".
A somewhat strange album but I like it a lot!

Came across CPB reading another customer review on a different band / CD.

They recommended them for anyone into bands like Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree and Anathema. As I like all these bands, I thought I would take the plunge.

Glad I did. Nice mixture of styles / songs with varied instrumentation

Standout for me is definately Bastogne Blues. Just the way it starts with the war veteran talking about being haunted by the memory of killing a young German soldier in WWII , then the meaningful lyrics building up to the main instrumental melody . Very moving

However, the other three main tracks are excellent , with a couple of AOR / more poppy songs to finish off.

with reference to the review of l.m. melssen....and the out of place ballad song "of a lifetime" thats because it is a cover of a song off the very first JOURNEY album ,(a long long long time before "don't stop bleedin believin" )just like the borrowed floyd "meddle " riff on 200 tons!!!.........nuff sed.

Bought this album after listening to a few tracks on YouTube. Absolutely brilliant. Has to be one of my favourite albums of the last few years. Took a few listens to completely understand but after a few plays I just got it. The tracks are just masterfully produced and each song is just perfected. Definitely recommended to all rock lovers.
