5 stars DOOMSDAY AFTERNOON is quite simply a masterpiece. Every now and then you get an album that comes along that just works on every level. Right from the second you tear off the cellophane and marvel at Moll Ruttan's wonderful paintings - you know this is going to be something special. This is a concept album that flows effortlessly from start to finish. The marvelous signature themes that repeat throughout the journey make it seem like Doomsday is one long magical song. There are so many of those perfect moments on this album - you know, the ones that make the hairs stand up on your arms! The most obvious of these is the timeless Crumble - a theme so beautiful, it appears twice - first in act one, as piano on its own. Then later in act two with some sublime haunting vocals. Doomsday Afternoon is an eco disaster tale, wonderfully told through touching music, poignant lyrics, and vibrant meaningful artwork. Thank you Phideaux and friends for giving me something I will treasure. 10 / 10
