As for the music and performances, I doubt whether RJG and the band could ever improve upon these (though I hope they keep trying). The addition of the CBSO and choirs to the performance make an incredible difference to the range of the music. RJG’s composition and orchestration are totally superb, and combined with his piano and Jason’s guitar work the result is breathtaking. Max’s vocal arrangements add such a depth, and Dave and Nic’s percussion provide a true solidity to rhythms.
Overall, this album is unbeatable (for a long term Enid follower) and a superb introduction to the band for those not really aware of their music.
It really is a tour de force, well done ALL concerned!
