4 stars I think what sets this album apart from their previous releases is how haunting this can get. It's based on the chilling short story by M.R. James called "Oh Whistle And I'll Come To You Lad". Simon the drummer states that the music here taps into a person's primoridal fear, especially the title track.

"Journey To The Coast" has this light wimsical melody as the birds sing away. Yes we are driving to the coast. A train comes rushing by making a powerful sound as it drowns out all other noises. "The Globe Inn" has a Post-Rock vibe as the guitar is picked and drums beat. Laid back vocals follow. An early FLOYD-like soundscape takes over before 3 minutes and the organ joins in. "Finding The Whistle" builds in sound with acoustic guitar leading the way with a repetitive melody. It fades out and we can hear somone walking and the sounds of waves. "Watcher Part 1" is a short, relaxed vocal track.

"Who Is This Who Is Coming ?" has these deep spacey sounds that echo. We get a change 3 minutes in with dramatic piano, mellotron and more. Lots of atmosphere. We can hear someone walking as the haunting atmosphere continues. It sounds like mellotron choirs before an alarm bell goes off to end it. "Convinced Disbeliever" is a fairly heavy track with lots of drums. There is contrasting mellotron and atmosphere. "Watcher Part 2" has reserved vocals as distorted organ along with drums play in the background. It turns lighter with acoustic guitar late. "A Face Of Crumpled Linen" opens with the wind blowing as guitar and more build. Drums 2 minutes in but it does settle back before kicking in again late. "Spectacle Of A Scarecrow" has Post-Rock styled guitar and it turns dreamy late with strange sounds too.

I do prefer this over their previous album but I still consider the debut to be their high water mark. On the other hand I would say that all of their records are worth getting.

4 stars THE FUTURE KINGS OF ENGLAND was, until a few years ago, one of British rock's hidden secrets. But following three well received full length productions a greater variety of people have become aware of their endeavors, and when their fourth disc "Who Is This Who Is Coming" was released towards the end of 2011 it was a CD many had eagerly been awaiting.

70's oriented progressive rock is what The Future Kings of England are masters of, lightly flavoring the proceedings with psychedelic and post rock details, frequently inserting subtle details or distinct sequences of a pastoral nature and liberally flavoring the end result with Mellotron and vintage sounding keyboards. Those who know about the band from previous occasions can safely purchase this latest disc; those unfamiliar with the band are advised to check them out, at least if some of the descriptions given sound enticing.

4 stars This is really more of a soundtrack to the chilling short story by M.R. James called "Oh Whistle And I'll Come To You Lad." The music matches up amazingly well with the story, progressively getting scarier with each song. The band has diverged quite a bit from the Post Rock/Math Rock/Psychedel ... (read more)
