5 stars Guy did it again!

Actually Guy exceeded it again. The new album, Songs from the Bilston House is stunning. Guy has developed his style keeping the playful songwriting attitude and yet creating a symphonic masterpiece. The music is beautiful, intrestingly complex and harmonically coherent. Strong without being metallic. Oh how I love the atmospheric moments with acoustic guitar and flute that then grow with bass and keyboards anmd other instruments into an exciting climax. This is the best manning record so far and that is a great effort knowing that the preceeding albums are mainly 5 stars music. They should let Guy sing more in the :Tangent, he has a great voice.

An masterpiece of melodic symphonic modern prog.
