5.0 out of 5 stars Their best yet!, 18 Mar. 2010

This review is from: And Then We Saw Land (Audio CD)
Earlier albums featured moments of song writing genius linked by pleasant musical meanderings. These were as if they had set out to complete a song or two but the sun was shining and they were smiling, so the songs remained unfinished but delightful. This album is a more cohesive set of individual songs yet it is no less Tunng. Whether or not any of the individual songs matches your favourites from the past is a matter of personal taste but the overall quality is far more consistent.

They are often described as Folk but there is no Celtic nostalgia here, no melodies reverse engineered across the pond through modal tuning, no longing for the mines, no working hardship, pirates, poachers, highwaymen or lords and ladies dancing. If this references the past it is the whimsical innocence of Barrett's Floyd or the lyrical brilliance of Ray Davies at his peak. Their work speaks not to the England that would break us but to the England in our hearts, or perhaps the one just a step or two beyond the looking glass.
