5 stars When I discover a new group and try to get others to check them out (entirely the point of my presence on this and other websites), I first try to compare to other bands to pique interest. Here I was immediately reminded of Big Big Train and Van der Graaf Generator, Only to discover David Jackson himself features heavily on this album! This album is so delightfully British, telling stories of Malcom Campbell and Hallsands. After a lovely introductory track we are treated to Blue Bird, which has to be heard to be believed! I had No idea about these people from the 1920s and their attempts to break the land speed record but this track's combination of spoken word "radio broadcasts", great lyrics and interesting instrumentation had me hooked. I listened to this about 4 times before continuing with the album, completely mesmerized. The rest of the album does not disappoint but my favourite instrumentally must be Houdini, featuring more of that radio broadcast style and sounding more like VDGG than the rest while maintaining a sense of complete originality. I can't think of a 2017 album that captured my interest as completely as this one, you cannot miss this! An easy 5 stars,the lyrics, vocals, all the players are perfect, I can't think of anything to criticize at all. I love this
