1 stars This is really not an album I like, such a shame, it will rest in my catalogue with a few others (the bad apples), unheard. THE TALL SHIPS fails to grasp me because of 80-style arrangements (that personally I dislike), the overall sound seems to run on all the songs with minor changes. It seems difficult to distinguish many songs from the others. The only noticeable songs are "The winds that shake..." and "For safekeeping". The biggest disappointment is the 13-minute "This is England": with such lengthness I was hoping for an "important" statement, while though in the first part seems promising and leading to a crescendo, it never takes off to heigths, and produce an orrible (sorry) part starting at 7:30 circa, and the ending is really poor. No pleasure received from listening, 1 star.
