3 stars After having finally gotten around to Big Big Train's well received 2 part concept album English Electric, I can safely say the praise has been overly effusive. The albums aren't bad, but that's about it. There is absolutely nothing captivating about them. Sure they're well preformed and crisply edited, but I am at the point where that is nothing more than par for the course. Good reviews are granted for imagination as much as they are for ability and these albums are seriously lacking the latter.

If you are an insatiable Genesis fan, you are liable to get the most from them. The best way I can think to describe them is a longer considerably more boring Selling England by the Pound. For what it's worth, part one marginally exceeds part 2. I'll give it 3 out of 5. Expect my review for the second one to be much the same, but the score lower.

R-A-N-M-A | 3/5 |
