5 stars Having found out about this band less than a year ago I'm not one of the longtime followers but I feel I'm one of the most enthusiastic you can find! :D Have that in mind while you read this and see my doubtless 5star-rating!! To put this short: I haven't heard music this powerful, intelligent, beautiful and absolutely musically flawless in many many years! It is music that evokes emotions within me in a way it was a long time since I last experienced! It is music and lyrics with a thouroughly thought-out underlying idea without trying to be conceptual! It's true art in every inch, connecting the brain with the heart and soul in a way rarely encountered! This is music that SHOULD find its way outside this rather narrow prog-world of ours. It's music that defies genre in an exquisite way. And it's music presented and performed by a group of merry lads who seem to be the nicest bunch, really! It's music that combines elements and sentiments from the likes of Genesis, XTC (Dave Gregory's one of the merry lads after all), Prefab Sprout, TalkTalk and David Sylvian which in my book is as close to a perfect mixture you can come! Thanks BBT!!
