Igor Mokin Inspired and lyrical, mellow prog. Love the rich instrumentation, the textures, the composition. Everything in this album, and in its companions, speaks of the band's curiosity for music and love for their art. No anger, no gloom here, only an open heart and a wise smile. This music does good with every note. Favorite track: Lost Rivers of London.

Stephen Clark These guys epitomise supreme musicianship. They are artisans. Favorite track: The Transit of Venus Across the Sun.

Carsten Pieper What a gorgeous album - and it's getting better with every spin! More than once (Along the Ridgeway, London Plane...) they are able to evoke the majestic grandeur that I love so much in early-Genesis epics like The Firth of Fifth or Dancing With the Moonlit Knight.

Nevertheless (and of course) , BBT are no cover band but have long developed their very own sound which they keep on refining (with brass and strings, for which the title track is a good example). They even rock in places ;-) Favorite track: Folklore.
