5 stars I have eagerly awaited this album after the EP, We Only Have Eyes For You, was released earlier this year to whet our appetites. Not scheduled for release in Europe until 9 September 2018, I managed to get hold of a copy from Progrock Wales via Amazon.

The EP had seven tracks. The album has 19 but most of the EP tracks have evolved in the intervening months so it doesn't seem like there is much overlap between the two. The album is a massive double release. There is nearly one and a half hours of music and, when you listen to it, there does not appear to be any pause for breath. It seems like one piece of music with each track rolling into the next. Because of this I found it an extraordinary listen and I have kept playing the entire album on repeat whenever I get the chance.

Apparently this is the third instalment in a trilogy that commenced with Great Leap (2006) and continued with Doomsday Afternoon (2007). So in theory this has been 11 years in the making. There have been other albums Phideaux released in the intervening years but nothing since 2012. I am not sure what Phideaux Xavier has been doing with himself over the last six years but this has certainly been worth waiting for. A wonderful album.
