I am a big fan of the Enid and have been since the late 70's. I have seen them live on many occasions and 'Sir' Robert John and his merry men have given me years of musical pleasure. They have produced some stunning work over the years and I can think of very little that I dont like very much. I much prefer the symphonic instrumental pieces which I think the Enid are all about. Their latest offering is a mixed bag. In places it is simply fabulous. Unfortunately the album is weighted down with too many dodgy vocals which crucify what could have been a perfect offering. Over the years the Enid have ruined many a classic track with poor vocals. I don't know why RJG wants to put these in? Journeys End has also been mixed with the vocals very forward in the mix which makes matters even worse. I'm not sure if this is Max Read's influence? If they were background mixed perhaps they could have got away with it. Half the album I like, Half I hate so much it stops me listening to it. When they play it live it actually sounds excellent, but I think they do a different version to the CD or at least the music level takes away the emphasis on those vocals. I will be at Birmingham in October for what I hope will be something special. I just hope their next album contains much less fannying around with pointless protracted vocal parts. Having said all that I still love the Enid like no other band. They are so different and long may they continue to produce great music.

There appear to be two versions of this new Enid album - this one (Inner Sanctum), and one from Seraphim. They have different artwork. Is one "unofficial" ? I don't know if they sound the same, or have the same contents. Its up to you to check and decide. I gave it 3 stars, only since the review system asks for a rating.

After a 10 year gap, The Enid are back, and this time they're serious, if their current activity is anything to go by. I just wish they'd returned with an album I could enthuse about just a little more. There's some great music on Journey's End, but it comes in fits and starts. And I really don't like the vocals much at all. (They've just got a new singer, so I expect we'll see a new version eventually!) There seem to be about 101 voices on this yet, remarkably, it's still hard to make out the lyrics without reading the lyric sheet. And when you do... "spacesuit fitting like a glove"? kind of leaps out at you as a pretty naff cliched line.

There are a lot of pluses, notably the orchestral finish, the lengthy Malacandra, which sounds like a beefed up Star Wars theme, and the rather catchy Space Surfing - even though its lyrics did make me cringe a little. But still, I'm a little disappointed. I won't even go into the argument about the different versions - there's another out this year, with improved guitars (I gather) and some bonus tracks with the new singer. Enough to say I was immensely pleased so see The Enid back making music again. Their live performances have been great, and they seem to be unified as a band in a way they haven't been for over thirty years. But as an album, Journey's End is not, for me, of the same standard as the excellent and seemingly ignored White Goddess, let alone their masterful 1970s albums. It's often impressive, it's true, sometimes rather flash, but it doesn't really move me in the way Enid albums usually do.

Imagine if you will you have been transported back to 1912. In some crazy steam punk kind of way , we're still in the world of Mahler, Edwardian Elgar, pre Titanic sinking pre WW1 pre Schoenberg reactionariasm, but the ROCK BAND has been invented along with all the orchestral emulation trappings that go with it...

In such a world it would be cheaper to score Mahler Symphony #11 for 6 piece rock band and choir, where the choir is made up of one guy and a voice synth.

And here it is for all to here, well at least part 1 of 3 anyway !

Don't think too much, sit back, and enjoy the ride. It's a real helter skelter of a ride taking in all styles, sound bytes, fragments, echoes that a true Mahler Symphony would encompass.

Bring on parts 2&3 !

The sense of humour in all of this really shines through. Spot the 2 second fragment 'ihr kommt zuruch" from Mahler 8 right in the middle of it all.

And the final track is frankly one of the finest pieces of orchestral music never yet played by an orchestra. Simply beautiful. Like Delius on a good day.

Pleas let the CBSO concert in Brum go well, this stuff deserves so much more attention...
