5 stars A really great idea to put in one album the two volumes of "English Electric". And the new songs fit in very well. "Make Some Noise" is a great pop-song, with vocals on the front. When I listened to the first volume I was amazed, I couldn't stop listening to it, there's something magical with it. The voice of Mr. Longdon? The vibrant rhythm section? The brass arrangements? The delicate flute lines? The string arrangements? The melancholic melodies? The backing vocals? Or perhaps the incredible guitars of Dave "Duke" Gregory? ALL of it... In general terms, the second volume (4,5 would be a proper rate) is not as excellent as the first one (5, without a doubt). But the Big Big Question is: how is this band going to surpass the BEAUTY of the first volume? But now, when you listen to the volumes together, with the new songs, everything falls into place. Make you a favor: stop reading this review and buy this fantastic double album (it comes with a 96 page booklet). The best of 2013? More than this: one of the best records made in the 21st Century so far...
