2 stars If, for whatever reason, you happen to have read my review of English Electric prepare to be bored. If you have not, prepare to be underwhelmed.The concept of a concept album, does not a masterpiece make. No, I didn't love these albums. They were boring.Not even excitingly bad, just bland. The singing was by a man I can only assume is a less talented clone of Phil Collins and the band plays like some over the hill rockers who think a little noodling qualifies as prog rock and that a pallet of beige and grey makes for a rainbow. I felt Big Big Train had already overreached themselves on part 1 and part 2, is the less exciting brother of the insurance salesman that was part 1.

Part 2 was too much gruel for this guy. Before you run out and buy either, note that you can sample them in full on Bandcamp and save yourself some money if certainly not some time. Part 2 earns 2 out of 5. Avoid this album unless you are a completionist.
