Thanks Ken. If I'm quoting him correctly, Cousins meant that the songs were "themes" that he assembled for a day's emotional adventure, but the result is the same. A great album.

Good words today from both Rivertree and K Rowland on Vangough's album Warpaint.

Thanks Steve!

Here is a more favorable review just for balance
I'm going to review the latest from Narrow Pass shortly.  They definitely have more rock aspects and this one has contributions from John Hackett.  The storyline is also more interesting

Thanks Ken. I'm not a I fan of either track with the traditional "Will You Go" (Wild Mountain Thyme) done better by many others, but they are harmless enough.

Kev Roland was awesome on the homepage today. I didn't have time to finish reading his last review and I'm looking forward to doing so later this evening. Great stuff! Clap

VianaProghead has a very nice summary of the qualities of "One Hour by the Concrete Lake". Its my second favorite POS after "Be". A very under appreciated work. 

Nice job Clap

I'm so biased, that it's hard to say. Wink Seriously, you can't go wrong with either Grave New World or Witchwood, IMHO. They're both good in that they're not similar. Kind of how prog used to be, back in the day.

At $7.79 each I just threw them both in the cart.

Don't read much album reviews nowadays but that Grave one was excellent, Steve.

And the best is yet to come with the Bursting/Hero/Ghosts masterpieces.
