5 stars Second album of The Box from 1985 named All time, all time, all time is another worthy album. Many said that this is their peak of their career and the best they ever done, agree to that , but I must add something, this album must be heared along with the first one, they go hand in hand. Some improvements can be heared here over the first, specially they get rid of the drumming machine and has real drums on this second album, the sound is more polished here, sometimes I have the feeling that they were influenced by Split Enz or even Supertramp eclectic elements. All time, all time is more complicated over the previous one in musical terms, is now more mature and is with some prog leanings for sure. Musicianship is brilliant, smooth and elegant and with amazing songwriting. From the first piece Remnants you can expect to hear something great and well played. All the pieces are simply great, showing that this second album is a great aqusition for many, again this album has a special place in my collection along with the first one. The musicians are top notch, another well done vocal parts who sound very intristing and elegant specially on my fav tracks Remnants, And Say Goodbye, School and My Dreams of You. Beside the music , the visusl factor is very well puted, and I mean another excellent cover art ( the back cover is the same with the one from front but is enlarged, excellent painting) made by the painter Richard Hetu. So, another timless album in my opinion, who desearve a wider recognition because they desearve it, among the best albums I ever heard along with the first one. A masterpice of music in general, now with a much prog leanings added. Recommended to those who can enjoy Talk Talk and bands from art pop. 5 stars for sure, smooth and elegant all the way
