I couldn't disagree more with the Philip Price. This album, like the previous two, is a masterpiece of songcraft, with melodies that will stick with you for weeks. Although it is accessible, this music isn't disposable. I'm quite sure I will be listening to it for years and years. BT wear their influences on their sleeves and the influences are numerous and various (The Band, Southern Rock, 1970s American guitar pop) and yet they never sound like mere pastiche. This is songwriting and playing of the highest order rivalling the very best in rock music. It is every bit the equal of "Furr" and the brilliant-but-underrated "Destroyer of the Void."
great songwriting, the band have really focussed on melodies but still have the progressive country edge you might already know of. it's been in my car stereo for months and like to sing and get into the groove of this blissful melodic album
Since creating the positively wonderful early albums and their masterpiece "Furr" this band have sadly lost the plot. Quality control has gone out of the window and we find ourselves presented with yet another sub-standard (their own high standard) mediocre album. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against this band - I've seen them play live twice and they are very good. But they would be better taking their time and creating some quality material rather than gigging all the time and feeling that they have to produce an album every year - when they clearly have not had time to write decent songs. Never mind. Hopefully the next one will see them back on form.
