Customer Review

on 12 March 2005
Being a sucker for any album drenched in the wonderful sound of a mellotron Beggars Opera's second album is one of the best. Completely different from the debut 'act one' they dispensed with the Nice obsessions and revamping of classical romps and concentrated on their own songwriting abilities and what a wonderful change of direction! 'Festival' is the only track i believe leftover from the original band to appear here and its a wonderful uplifting flute laden track. 'The Fox' apart from its great sentiments is a song of two halves the first fairly proggy developing into a great heavy dirge at the end with mellotron over the pedestrian riffing. Martin Griffiths singing is on the whole great, but a little too impassioned and cringe worthy on 'i've no idea' and 'nimbus' sounds as if it would be ideal for a film soundtrack 'silver peacock' is the real mellotron workout and the best track here. Somehow after this they lost their way. The follow up 'pathfinder' was over produced and fairly patchy and the less said about 'get your dog off me' the better. This is the pinnacle of their work.
