I literally just bought this out of curiosity because I'd heard the odd good thing about it here and there. As soon as Dead Flag Blues kicked in I was blown away. It begins by setting the scene with a stark monologue, before the violins glide in.
Inside about the first 2 minutes you know you're in for something special. I would say this is a concept album, it seems to be anyway, on the theme of modern living in an industrial society. It conveys so many emotions over the hour, but overall it is uplifting and hopeful.
It's a very hard album to describe because it's basically an hour of ambient/chillout music with some voice samples and sound effects to carry the "story" along.
I think someone said, think Pink Floyd without the vocals, regarding this album; and they'd be right. One of the best progressive albums I've heard in some time. I'm pretty eager to get some more stuff by this band now.
