Interesting to read some of the 5* reviews. They have either found something I have missed with this CD, or have not experienced stellar songwriting, by the likes of modern prog class acts, Spock's Beard (NDV, guests on drums on this release), Porcupine Tree, or classic brit proggers Gentle Giant; IQ, Pallas, Genesis et all.
As one reviewer put it, there is nothing bad about this release, but there is also nothing memorable. The concept is very English, and crys out for classic stroytelling. However, although well played and produced, there are very few memorable hooks, or atmospheres.
The first BBT Cd I have checked out, maybe others are more rewarding.
Disappointing, and never reaches any highs.
