I have to get around to listening to part one. I have it queued up on Spotify, but I hate getting into too much new music in a short period of time.

Part One seems unbeatable. It's easily my best album in 2012.

Big Big Train struggles in appeal everywhere but their music.

Awful name, awful t-shirts, and these E.E albums have awful artwork. 

Please fix. Ouch

LOL

Gotta say...I love the first album, but seeing the video to accompany some of the music on the BBT main page was inspiring. Seeing some imagery with the music helped me to 'get it" even more.

Just full on class, Big Big Train!

So much great prog to look forward to in the next couple months (Riverside, Spock's, Steven Wilson, etc.)!
Thank you, God of Rock, for this chance to kick ass

I like part one but not as much as apparently other people do. It was a tad 'light' for me but certainly a pleasant listen just about scaping into my top ten for the year. I'll get the follow up for sure.

It's out! Listening to the first track and it's amazing! Part One grew on me, though I still don't rate it as highly as most. Part Two is going beautiful right out of the gate!
