5 stars What never fails to amaze me is how one of the most consistently stunning bands of 21st century can be called "Crossover Prog". I'm listening to The Underfall Yard right now, and the same thing strikes me that has on Difference Machine and the under-appreciated English Boy Wonders (re-issue). That's how they manage to evoke the different 70s prog giants, but avoid committing to a complete slavish recreation.

Of course what greatly adds to that feat on this album is the inclusion of horns. So the vocal arrangements can hint at Yes, and the 12-string lushness evoke Genesis, but the horns add such a vastly different element. They partake in that sea of concordant discord that BBT is becoming known for.
