Big Big Train-English Electric
At the beginning of the seventh decade of the last century England gave the world amazing roster of symphonic rock bands. Those bands created timeless music that influenced so many other bands around the world. The staple of their sound was huge array of keyboards, concept albums, complicated arrangements, long songs and of course Mellotron. They were so good in what they were doing that symphonic rock bands of today need to be very original if they do not want to be labeled as Genesis knockoff for example. Big Big Train almost succeeded in that quest. There is still little bit of Genesis in their music but nothing to be ashamed of. BB Train definitely has its own sound
and creative potential and it is coming from England the birthplace of symphonic rock. This album could be the peak of their career and it is beautiful peace of music that I highly recommend.
