This is a review I wrote some time ago for the 2007 album by British prog-rock band Big Big Train.
In light of their new offering, an EP entitles , I thought of posting this review now.
Also, you can download the title track (23 minutes) of their last full-length, The Underfall Yard, here. They have more free downloads in their website.
I have never heard any other Big Big Train album prior to this one, so at that time I couldn't compare it with their previous efforts, though I read good reviews about Gathering Speed, their 2004 album. On this album they are joined by Dave Meros (bass) and Nick D'Virgilio (drums, vocals) from Spocks Beard and Pete Trewavas (bass) from Marillion. Though seven tracks are listed, there are actually four long tracks that make up this album, the other three being mood setters, intervals or connecting sequences.
