This album was recorded pre-Big Big Train success, but shows just
how good a singer he is, and how much he brings to the BBT sound.
Recorded in 2004 with various musicians collectively known as the
Magic club, it also features XTC's Dave Gregory playing some guitar
and Mellotron. Says Longdon: “The album is about the passing of
time, love, death and the inevitable impermanence of everything. It
is not a Prog album but it has elements of progressive rock within
it. It's an eclectic mix and I had an interesting journey making
it". Good harmonies, thoughtful and varied compositions, quite
acoustic in texture with considered use of supporting instruments
(e.g. mandolin, violin/strings, harmonica, percussion) and
impressive vocal performances make this a notable listen.
