2 stars Though the music of this band is slightly better, the approach of this band remind me of (for me infamous) neo-prog bands like Unitopia, Magenta, Glass Hammer etc. Big Big Train are focused especially on impersonating of Genesis branch of prog. I miss genuine excitement in this kind of music. Everything seems fabricated from the song-writing point of view and is made for sake of sounding prog, being very predictable in fact. Album sounds pleasantly however, the mix is great. Band serves us music in nice very package - by instruments used (mellotrons, moogs, flute, strings) with the help of a choir. It's like they have all ingredients to make a good music, but they lack substance that for example Genesis or Yes had. Nothing visionary, breathtaking or really memorable. Just pleasant. Following a template how symphonic prog should be done doesn't make album good. For collectors only.
