4 stars 8/10

Of all the releases this year, this album really stands out. Many know Sean Filkins as the former lead singer of Big Big Train, but now he is ready to make his mark with his debut album War and Peace and Other Stories. This album evokes the prog giants of the past, with a strong sense of neo-prog of the 80s (and I think this genre is more appropriate for this album than crossover prog). The music is complex and enjoyable, though not as original. Filkins runs most of the instruments, while some other special guests give the guys here. For me the real highlights are the first part of the epic Prisoner of Conscience and Epitaph for a Mariner, but all the songs have great potential. 4 stars.
