4 stars I heard about this band shortly after their first album release (the man who never was) I read some reviews and was impressed, so purchased it and it was a mighty fine album. so much so that ordering album no 2 was a formality. The tower of clocks certainly has impressed me also, beautiful art work on the sleeve, a nice bonus of live second disc too, signed booklet AND I get my name credit because I pre ordered very early. Now to the music itself, first track Herald is instrumental so you don't yet get to hear Al Winters stunning vocals, I very much like this top piece of music as it moves along nicely and you hear owl hooting and clocks ticking, all very Floydish but very This Winter Machineish too. I love this and track 2 -Flying.. beautiful vocal and top ballad. Now rather than go on the track by track guide and as it's been done already by another reviewer here, it's my opinion that this is very much the equal of the previous album. It has very good light and shade, warm sounding and rocks at times with a lovely guitar sound, clear crisp drumming and swirling key work it's very obvious that all these guys know how to play. I love Justified, Delta and Carnivale .. all top tunes. The album flows very well and it never ceases to impress, quite possibly a contender for best Prog release of 2019 and that is saying something because there are a few big names to battle with. It is also a real grower so I suggest you give these guys a bit of your time... Order now - the clock is ticking.
