5 stars The combination of two masterful works, English Electric parts one and two. With four extra tracks.

The whole compilation grabbed all nineteen tracks and rearranged them in a way that makes it feel like one continuous story. It's, in my opinion, the best starting point for anyone who wants to get into Big Big Train. It's their most quintessential work. It features strong Genesis influence combined with sweet wind instruments such as flute, tuba, trumpet and trombone, along with string instruments like violin, viola, cello, guitar and momentary harps.

It's a very long work so I recommend you to listen the first CD in one sitting and then the other one. The best Big Big Train work.
