'Beautiful british prog!',
This review is from: The Underfall Yard (Audio CD)
I first got into BBT in 2004 with the brilliant 'Gathering Speed' and then preceded to obtain the back catalogue, in 2007 came IMHO the disappointing 'The Difference Machine', fast forward to december 2009 and what has to be one of my favorite release's of this year. Its a grower, but after a few plays its got you and just gets better and better.
If you had to say what BBT sounded like you'd always have to say 70's genesis ('last train' a fine example) and yet still retaining there own distinctive sound, which on this album has become a highly polished affair, everything works, vocals, guitar work ('victorian brickwork' steve Howe would be proud!!) Flute, and i'd never thought i would say it, but even the brass works!! The album is worth the 8 quid alone for the outstanding 23min 'the underfall yard' title track, and what a 23mins!
I listen to alot of music and am forever seaching for that next great album, and would like to think at 45 i had acquired an ear for a good one when i hear it, so if you appreciate well crafted music, played by talented musicians then hit that buy button and help not only support this band but get them some deserved recognition.
