4 stars I stopped listening to this album after i saw them live (i dont know why?), and i picked it up last night for the first listening in ages, and i was impresssed, the entire album flows effortlessly and the muscianship is excellent, looking at the songs individually there is a clear highlight in 'is it really happening' the guitar work and drumming is excellent , the only downside to this album i think is the theme and lyrics, they are far to forced, and always relating back to morse's religious views. yes we all know your christian Neal so we dont need you preaching to us in every song, other than the over religious lyrics (listen to dancing with eternal glory) the album as a whole is brilliant and i wouldnt hesitate in giving it 4.5 stars, the second cd however apart from 'Return of the Giant Hogweed' is a slight dissapointment, songs like 'I need you' and 'Salty Dog' are slow and boring and there doesnt seem to be any song other than 'RotGH' that stands out and leaves any lasting appeal. so Overall given the musical genius behind the composition and general musicianship on the album and of coarse the subtle transitions between the tracks of the album, and taking into consideration the dissapointment that was the song choice on the second album, i would still give this album a good 4 stars. well worth the wait!
