4 stars A very mellow, melancholic release this time -lots of pained lyrics about love and heartbreak and growing old -some beautiful and subtle arrangements -sometimes I feel BIG BIG TRAIN could set themselves the challenge of being a more up-beat edge band and be more adventurous or heavier or even more commercial! but you can't mistake their unique mainly slow trademark sound, This did slightly annoy me at first as all the songs were slow and laid-back, but having given this c.d some time to sink in, you can forgive them for this. BARD has a beauty about it and the subtlty washes over you (if you give it time!)-often miserable, this album could reduce one to tears in the sadder sections! but also has a lasting quality about it. once its clicked and you've grasped the beauty of this album you'll want to shout it from the rooftops to tell everyone about it, its that good.
