Customer Review

on 13 February 2009
Imagine a lineup of Banks, Squire and Bruford with Howe and Hackett sharing lead, playing stuff from around the Yes Album / Nursery Cryme era. Add something approximating to Anderson (but more interesting) with guest spots from Wakeman and Mel Collins in his Camel days (the previous album was even more Camel-ish), then add a hint of Porcupine Tree / Radiohead and that's the sort of sound you can expect from this great album. I picked up on BBT after they appeared on some freebie sampler with a music mag. That one track aroused my interest and I wasn't disappointed when I invested in this recording. Every track is either a huge masterpiece or a short interlude type mini-masterpiece. Also and unusually, it gets better and better as the album progresses. The final two tracks are absolutely magnificent. I has permanent status at position CD1 in my car multi-changer and even my younger daughter (18) thinks it's "lovely" - praise indeed ! If you enjoyed the prog heydays of the 70's but have been a bit disappointed by more recent stuff by those bands or newer bands of that ilk, try this album - you'll not be disappointed. Five stars.
