Beautifully performed and produced. Picks up on the vibe of 'All Rights Removed' and then takes it further.

Dodgy vocals ...yes, I really dont like his voice at all , but thankfully the album is mostly instrumental.

Musically its early Porcupine Tree meets Pink Floyd.

Derivative as be damned , but hey.....when it sounds this good who cares.

Only pain is lack of an mp3 download with the vinyl.

Once again I really enjoyed the Airbag relaxed style. This album probably has a slightly harder sound than the previous and two and is probably my least favourite of the trio but if you liked the first two you won't be dissappointed.

I put off buying it, and then finally saw the CD in HMV and thought 'why not'?

But whilst the playing is superb, Airbag just over too much as a Pink Floyd tribute band that don't actually play PF music, but rather play 'in the style of'.

There are plenty of bands out there influenced by the Floyd; Mostly Autumn, Riverside and Anathema to name just three. But although you can pick-up the influence in the music (helped by Mostly Autumn and Anathema playing 'Comfortably Numb' live) all of these have forged their own sound and there own unique compositional style. Airbag though haven't. Other than a few occasions where they go down other routes, what you have here is an album in the PF style, the PF arrangements, even Gimours trademark tone. Everything except songs that would make it to a PF album. After a while (well ten minutes in) it starts to grate.

I couldn't rate such highly-skilled musicians a 1-or-2 star. After two listens 'Greatest Show was put in the 'rarely-to-be-played-again' pile. If I hear that these guys have pursued a new new unique style for the next album, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it.

I stumbled across this by accident and I am so glad I did! TGSOE is the latest album from this Norwegian band which is very easy listening and (as others have mentioned)sounds very Pink Floyd(ish). Nothing bad in that as we will not be getting anything new from PF so there is a market for this kind of music.On the strength of this I downloaded their previous two albums and I have not stopped playing them since. Go on give yourself a treat !

Fantastic guitar work. If you like Dave Gilmour (and I do), then some of the guitar work is worth a listen. None of the songs are really 'hair standing on the back of the neck' stuff. To say it is their DSOTM as one reviewer has stated, I would not agree with at all. It is nowhere near that level and i think the band is capable of much more than this. I did not think it was as good as their previous album 'All Rights Removed', which had some more catchy and memorable offerings on it.

Good band, with great potential - non of it realised on this album in my opinion.
