CD Review. Big Big Train Grimspound

Seems hardly anytime when I waxing lyrical about thier last offering Folklore.

This is a highly credible effort, the growing membership bringing new talents notably the string work and arrangements via Rachel Hall have added greatly for me.

If you've heard Folklore this is very much part 2 and that very British prog rock with folk overtones runs through much.

Experimental Gentlemen is a favourite of mine but each of the 8 tracks is well written, constructed and performed. Meadowland has be lying in a field by a brook with swallows swooping overhead.... beautiful.  Dave Longton's vocals are brilliant throughout with that slight Genesis feel but then possibly that's the hole I think Big Big Train fill in the space a truly British old style prog rock band.

Highly recommended.
