Bengt Larsen Renolen Third release in an elongated year, how'bout that? Beautiful songs sneaking through the ears'n straight to my heart, lyrics making my mind wander, rich harmonies, incredible musicianship, audiophile studio work and production... what an orchestra! Couldn't wait for the vinyl to arrive, and I'm glad I didn't. Thank you so much guys'n'gal! What else? What Christopher Olson said!

Christopher Olson This sublimely beautiful offering is the third installment of an brilliant trilogy from Big Big Train, all released in roughly 13 months time. Beginning with Folklore, followed by Grimspound, and now: The Second Brightest Star. Sweetly reflective, dreamy, and gorgeous. Music perfect for a cool, clear evening inside of your head...any time of day. Gazing at the stars, held gently yet firmly by the music, as your heart swells. Quite possibly the pastoral prog make-out album of the year... Favorite track: The Passing Widow.

about

The Second Brightest Star is a companion album to the Folklore (2016) and Grimspound (2017) releases. The Second Brightest Star features over 40 minutes of new songs and instrumentals alongside music from the Folklore and Grimspound albums presented in extended formats. With the exception of Brooklands and London Plane which were recorded at 24/48 and have therefore been up-sampled for this release to 24/96, all audio is at studio master 24/96 hi-resolution. The Bandcamp download includes a complimentary PDF of the album booklet including lyrics and the stories behind the songs.
