I was curious about the career of Big Big Train after falling on them thanks to your wonderful masterpiece The Underfall Yard. However if you also want them to know the music I give you a hint: do not start for this demo!

The only reaction I had after listening From the River to the Sea was: by God, what is it? I was shocked to have heard something so bad, banal and disposable. Not nearly resembles the band that captivated me with his latest album. A bunch of amateurs seem forgettable.

But I know whose fault it is. And who knows? The vocalist, Martin Read! One of the things I liked in The Underfall Yard was aa wonderful and beautiful voice of David Longdon. But this guy who sings here ... God forbid! Oh poor little voice! The rest of the members did not please me.

(And the drum? It looks like the type that is programmed into the keyboard, so rotten that is)

The songs do not bring anything significant with the only good moment is the instrumental River (which reminds me a kind of guitar solo from Steve Hackett or Steve Howe). In fact they resemble the Marillion 80s (which I dislike), but much worse (if possible).

1 star for this album horrible and dark. I hope the heart would not be wrong with the Big Big Train ...
