5 stars WOW, now to be honest, thats really all i can say about this album, this may just be the greatest 'comeback' album ever made.gone almost 20 years the band returned to deliver THE TALL SHIPS, now the order of the day on this release is songwriting and not so much prog, which is all fine and well if your vocalist/songwtriter is as good as John Mitchell. The songwriting here is beyond flawless, very poppy but of course thats not always a bad thing. The opening of OH MY GOD just simply blew my mind, and it continued to song after song, the ballads PLAYGROUND and the title track THE TALL SHIPS are simply breathtaking and the poppy songs such as the opening track, MEMORY OF WATER and the incredible FAHRENHEIT are just simply devine and get stuck in your head the more times you listen to them and the epic closer THIS IS ENGLAND is enough to satisfy even the most hungry prog fan, a simple classic;

Oh My God - 10/10 Ghosts - 10/10 Playground - 10/10 Memory Of Water - 10/10 The Tall Ships - 10/10 The Wind That Shakes The Barley - 10/10 Great Disasters - 9/10 Fahrenheit - 10/10 For Safekeeping - 10/101 Lights - 9/10 This Is England - 10/10

CONCLUSION; this album is just simply fantasic an almost perfect release..
