4 stars There are so many excellent reviews already that devote ample and well-written space to the individual tracks.

Thus I thought that I would write about the 'feel' I got from this wonderful album.

I thought that 'The Music That Died Alone' was OK, 'The World That We Drive Through' was a little better but somehow quite derivative.

However, whilst this album still pays massive homage to the heyday (for me, anyway) of the 70s, there is something much more 'fresh' about it than the two previous studio albums.

Perhaps it's because Andy Tillison is now totally at the helm and exhuberance rather than technical excellence is to the fore.

It's not that it's not well-produced, it is, it's just feels as though all concerned are enjoying themselves much more.

This was the impression I gained when I saw them live recently.

Favourite track - 'In earnest'. This is such a thoughtful track and the lyrics really mean something.

Brilliant from start to finish.

4.5 stars.
