I absolutely and completely adore this album. The band managed to create a sound that is unique and timeless, and in the late Tony Ogden had a genuine genius for a frontman.
It is at heart, and unashamedly so, a POP album, but has so many influences it's impossible to list them all.
The fact the band never pushed on from this album is a genuine tragedy, and was due to a number of factors. But in my eyes this is probably my favourite album of my lifetime.
I'm not sure if the album has been re mastered or not, but to my ears it does seem to have gained a fuller sound.
The second disc on this expanded version is excellent, particularly the Blackpool Tower suite which contains the best version of The Storm, and the radio sessions.
