5 stars Mind blown! Peter Jones and his Tiger Moth Tales just did that. I usually say, I remember where I was, when I first heard 3 albums in my life. It has now become 4! Beatles White album - Messed with my very young mind - A week later I knew it was brilliant Dark Side of the Moon (Floyd) - I knew straight away - It is brilliant The Light (Spock's Beard) - I knew prog was back - Brilliant! Cocoon - Knew within minutes this is brilliant!

A bit simplistic the way I wrote that? For good reason. Don't read this, just listen to the damn thing!

There are too many amazing musicians, singers, bands around now to list. One thing I was certain of. Nothing will ever really sound "Progressive" to me again. It seemed to me, to be a silly word now. I was wrong!

Cocoon IS progressive. Peter Jones has a voice that goes from Peter Gabriel, to Steve Hackett to Winston Churchill. (I mean it!) He can play guitar with the feel and virtuosity of Joe Satriani and countless others I might add. He plays piano or any keyboard like Tony Banks, when he chooses to do that. Saxophone that would fit perfectly in a solo about money. I know he could score a Hollywood movie then switch to insane heavy prog, a moment later.

This is the finest album of 2014 and in my opinion, one of the finest ever made in history and this seems to be just the start. NOTE: If you always hoped to hear a follow up to Foxtrot/Selling England by the Pound, this could be it. Stunned!
