3 stars Gathering speed from 2004 I can say is among my fav Big Big Train albums, I mean from what I've hered so far, I have all their albums, ep or demos this one is most intrestinng intresting ones but in same time far from being original influences from older Genesis is still present almost on every BBT album. Sean Filkins apear here for the first time on vocals and he did a good job overall, he has that special voice for such neo cross prog very much loved by many listners, he apear aswell on their next album The difference machine. High tide last stand is among the top pieces from here together with instrumental Sky flying on fire and Fighter command, the melodic guitar and good keybords parts of Spawton combined with Poole bass and good voice of Filkins make from this one a good listning even as I said before I'm a moderate fan of them and each album is good but nothing close to masterpiece, at least for me. Pleasent most of the time. 3.5 stars to this one.
