4 stars I have only recently heard this very hard to find album, Children's Games by the band Lorien. And I have to tell you that I was very impressed to say the least. This album features Sean Filkins who was the lead singer in Big Big Train for a couple of albums and who of course just released the fantastic solo album War and Peace & Other Short Stories, which is one of the top albums of 2011 by the way.And also Darren Newitt who plays lead guitar on Sean's solo effort, a fine guitar player he is. But this review is about the Lorien album, this is neo prog done at a very high level, well crafted tunes here with all of the ingredients that make an album neo, symphonic prog with lots of keyboards and guitars, very tight rhythm section and excellent lead vocals with really good lyrics. I do not see this as being easy to find, I was very lucky to get a copy of it,it really should be reissued, but if you can find it snap it up, if you are a fan of well done neo prog this album is for you.
