5 stars When you're listening to this album the first time you will thinking this is another great symphonic-prog album from the seventies. But no! This piece of music is from the year 2009! "Big Big Train" sounds like the great prog-bands from a past glory era, like genesis, yes or king crimson. But also much new music elements from this time are available on this album. So it's the perfect mix of old and new prog-rock.

With the first note of the first song ("Evening Star") you will thrown back in the good old times and this feeling will hold on till the last sound of "The Underfall Yard". The songs are all very atmospheric. Listen to the ending of "Victorian Brickwork", it's just wonderful. Of course you will thinking sometimes 'this is very close to genesis', but it's O.K., because they just try to sound a little bit like them, but they don't try to copy them. The listener should be remembered to the golden prog-times.

So, with this fusion of 70-prog and 21-prog "Big Big Train" wrote the best album of their career and the best album of the new century. A masterpiece.
