This is a median debut. Although Big Big Train has gained attention with his latest album (the magnificent The Underfall Yard) they are already on the road for a long time - 20 years. While their first demo was a complete abomination to me, the same can not be said Goodbye to Age of Steam. This is an album more mature, and certainly a step forward in relation to that horrible demo, but still not a masterpiece. The vocals, before bad (and still are in some moments) , are a bit better and there are now some harmonies. I think the real problem here are the keyboards that really pulls the album - and my ranking - down. Also sometimes it seems that musicians are a mediocre bunch of amateurs. But the rest is this a good work, even if not we hear Big Big Train in 2009. 3 stars
