Dave Gregory illuminates the world of music with his guiding style of playing. He is a one off genius who can devise arpeggios that transport you to a celestial world of musical bliss ! It's a band effort, it's a good band and you can sense the happiness and satisfaction amongst them. I simply cannot disguise my awe though for what Dave Gregory conjures up. He is not pedantic in his playing and he never tries to impress : why ? Because he doesn't have to, he is that talented ! I pray this band keeps recording and releasing new material. If I had to be harsh I would say the vocals could do with keeping within a comfortable threshold but their bravery has to nevertheless be admired.
Davey ! You've earned your place on Mount Olympus !

For a bunch of part-timers (albeit with one of the most under-rated British musos of the past few decades) this is really excellent stuff. At turns emotional, mellow, vibrant with some excellent arrangements. Always a pleasure when one of these songs pops up on my i-pod.

I bought this as I was so impressed with the guitar work of Dave Gregory on the Big Big Train albums. The album has a few prog references (including a cover version of Back In NYC by Genesis) but this is not prog by numbers and cannot be described by reference to old prog bands or even Dave's old band XTC. It's just great modern music. The tracks are generally long and one or two blend together (so it is proggy in that respect). However, they don't feel over extended and are always tuneful. The vocals are excellent and the guitar work even better than that. The lyrics and music are very well crafted.

So what do they sound like? The Back in NYC cover is very close to the Genesis original, and sits very well with the other songs on the album. But the vocalist does not sound like Peter Gabriel and the band do not sound like Lamb era Genesis. Thinking about it ...Back in NYC is a great song but I guess it's not a typical Genesis song. I'm not being much help am I?

Perhaps the highest recommendation is that Back in NYC (despite it's brilliance) is not the high point of the album (not even close). Check out the bands web page and videos.

If you like Big Big Train and the Underfall Yard - you will love this.
If you like Back in NYC and mid period Genesis (Trick in the Tail) - you'll really love this.

An easy 5 stars - can I give it 6?

An interesting album I think by a former XTC member but I would not put money on this being right.However although I was never an XTC fan this has some good guitar work and that is what I like about it and some interesting songs as well.Prog I am not sure but it is different and if you like guitar music this is worth a gamble

This is really refreshing, guitar based semi-prog (longish songs) brilliant songsmith. The weakest track surprisingly is Back in NYC which just does not have the power of other versions I have heard but the rest is excellent. Influences are clear but not as much as XTC as presumed, I heard Ty Tabor all over this for some reason, Byrds riffs, Allman Bros sound, some of the better Big Big Train.

Well worth the purchase.

I love this album. I stumbled across the band and album having recently got into Big Big Train. The common factor is ex-XTC guitarist Dave Gregory . There are any number of guitarists who can play blistering solos and I am sure Dave can do the same but what he does here is far more satisfying especially on the track Broken where he puts the song first rather that just using it as an excuse to show off resulting in the most enjoyable guitar playing I have heard for years. Didn't mean to major on Dave Gregory as it is a real band effort. Great stuff!
