5 stars I hadn't written any reviews before now, but after listening to this album, I felt this was as good a place to start as any. Now, a couple of days ago, I had never heard of this band. I happened to stumble across them on google while searching for various information about trains (?). I decided to buy this album just for kicks and was mightily surprised at how good it was. I have been listening to this album on repeat ever since. I must admit that I don't have much skill when it comes to dissecting albums or songs at a technical level and so my ratings are based more on a feelgood scale. That being said, I bet that if you'd seen my face the first time I listened to this album, there would've been a big old smile plastered on it. My favorite instruments on this album are the piano and flute but the singing deserves a lot of credit as well. In my opinion, what sets apart great prog albums from masterpieces are the vocals and big big train certainly delivers in that respect as well. Good job guys, I can't wait for part 2!
