PartTimeZombie These guys have horns and cellos, and they're not afraid to use them. If you're looking for a Yes or Genesis clone you're out of luck, but if you want a band who take the time to stretch out and give a song time to develop you're in luck.
I'm going to change my mind about my favourite track regularly.
Oh, and flutes.
Favorite track: The Transit of Venus Across the Sun.

Dragonjazz Just another excellent release from English band BBT. It would be really hard to find a greater example of contemporary symphonic prog/folk. Favorite track: Wassail.
Mavil64

Mavil64 Very Genesis-y and Yes-y but definitely not copies. A band that should be considered on par with those previously mentioned, Big Big Train impressed me so so much with this album. I didn't expect to find something so amazing here. I really wished to have these extra tracks on a CD but digital will have to do. It's is simply amazing. Thank you so much for giving me hours of enjoyment Favorite track: Lost Rivers of London.
