Review by loserboy
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Rich in the English neo-prog vein of JADIS and GALAHAD, BIG BIG TRAIN deliver highly symphonic and memorable music. "Goodbye To The Age Of Steam" is a wonderful little recording with some solid guitar, keyboard and drum interplay. In many ways this album reminds very much of JADIS and in fact Steve Christey and Gary Chandler both join the lads adding some brilliance. In fact this album is hosted by a few other friends including Stu Nicholson (GALAHAD), Martin Orford (IQ) and Sally French. BIG BIG TRAIN play a very tight and bright rock with gentle passages and packed with solid instrumentation. Solid neo-prog all the way through.

4 stars Big Big Train first album remastered. Always to start is difficult. This guys overtake the afraid and temptation to be likeable (or not) to everybody(fans of prog) Melodies are beautiful. Yes in their last albums they were going to show us all their very talented skills in instrumenta ... (read more)

3 stars 5/10 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 St ... (read more)

5 stars From the River to the Sea was their first demo, followed by The Infant Hercules, both pretty awful to be honest. A young band's first compositions I guess. So initially, I ignored this album, not expecting anything too much better. Eventually I think I won a CD prize and chose this as I alread ... (read more)

2 stars I'm no more impressed with this than the other CD i've reviewed (Bard). The singer just bores me and it appears that the singing parts are ALL EXACTLY THE SAME, tempo tone - just BORING!!! Thus when you get to the instrumental break (where it gets better) you are already realising that you wou ... (read more)

3 stars yes i know big big train, not the greatest band in the worldwhen compared to the likes of spock's beard/marillion etc... but still a good effort all the same with this disc. It has its moments and is fairly original sounding, shame about the voice! goodbye... opens with wind distorted pioneer ... (read more)
