4 stars Apart from the whimsical nature (following on from Story Tellers Part One), this does appear to have matured (if you can take the story of the 'Three Little Pigs' into context - which is hilarious by the way). The Palace; is it plagiarism, downright copying, or very clever use of influence from Steve Hackett? (Which I suppose is hardly surprising as Pete Jones used the moniker Tiger Moth from none other than - Steve Hackett. It certainly is the stand out track on the album.

'Kai' is perhaps the most progressive fare to be found on the album. 'The Match Girl' shows Pete Jones in nostalgic mood using clever chording and the duet on 'Eternity' is equally as good.

It is almost as though the whimsy separates these stand out tracks.

It is immediately obvious that although Pete Jones is an immensely talented musician, there is possible a lack of depth that could perhaps be resolved by introducing a 'real' drummer into the equation.

However, this is an improvement on the first part of Story Tellers. Will there be a Part Three??
