5 stars Absolutely not prog at all, but fabulous none the less. After 25 years away, ANYTHING is welcome from these boys, one of the most innovative, original and talented bands of all time. OK, there's no new songs here (except the instrumental Huish the Cat) but they are all reworked acoustically and totally different from the originals - the way they once thought about recording them. Some, shock horror, are even better than before - none more so than Flirting in the Shadows. (I recently spoke to Charles O'Connor at his shop in Whitby and he said they were hoping to tour soon and a DVD is coming soon - bliss!) Don't buy this (and you can only buy it in Ireland or on their website) if you haven't got an open mind; it's not The Tain or Book of Invasions or even a best of, it's a new concept and a very welcome one. The live reunion DVD of their first gig back together is a very worthwhile bonus, proving that they have lost nothing of their live magic.
