4 stars Strange little album, but to me the best the band have produced. All of the songs are a straight hit. The album starts calm with a few ballads, some folksongs and jazzy songs.

Skylon and Second Brightest Star are amongst the best progballads have created thusfar.

The icing on the cake, are the two progepics; two extended versions of themes and songs the band used on their previous albums. We can see the albums as a trilogy, and according to the band, this album is the last album in a series of albums that tell the tale of the english countryside and the people living there. I love the concept, and I am curious what the next concept will be.

Kingsnake | 4/5 |
