Customer Review

on 13 March 2013
There's a fair bit of chat in these reviews about this album being derivative of early 70s prog. Is it? Probably. Maybe. Does it matter? Obviously it does to some. I just like the album, to be honest. I don't care if the opening bass line sounds like Yes. I don't care if there are touches of Floyd. I just like it. And I liked it even more after I saw it performed live in Glasgow. I also think the album benefits from knowing a little of the background of the stories behind the songs. A quick summary of each was provided in an interview SW did with Prog Magazine. It makes the closing track, for example, even more poignant.

Musically, this is a fine piece of work with musicianship being very much to the fore. The quality of the recording is superb. It's a good length at just under the hour mark. Plenty of noise for your money without making the mistake of giving you 70-odd minutes and to hell with the quality. Despite a low song count, there's plenty of variety. It's only March, but this is already a contender of album of the year for me.
