5 stars This is musical, artistic, emotional and thematic perfection! It's very rare to have in my hands an album that I can't say anything negative about. This is such an album! It's flawless from beginning to end really. The opener Make Some Noise serves as an overture for the beautiful suite of songs which then unfolds. Yes, they are all wellknown songs from English Electric parts 1 and 2 but have a slightly different running order and some of the songs are segueing into the next in the most breathtaking way (The Edgeland Sequence for instance, also available from the bands Soundcloud-site). The new numbers fit in perfectly within the theme the songs are woven around. The booklet is crammed with gorgeous pictures by Willem Klopper and Matthew Sefton, all the lyrics of course and then the stories behind the songs. David Longdon and Greg Spawton published the stories in their respective blogs at the time of the releases of the single albums and they are a rewarding read for everyone interested in finding out what inspiration is all about. True art for everybody!! I love this band from the depth of my heart!
