Sven B. Schreiber This is the band that made me bump into bandcamp.com. Accidently heard "Words Of Mouth And Heart" on the "Symphonic Rock" channel of radcap.ru, and immediately loved it. Alas, it turned out to be very difficult to find this record for sale, but finally, bandcamp.com came to the rescue. Awesome progressive music with lots of unusual twists and melodies, stunning arrangements, and never getting boring. This is how prog rock should be... Favorite track: Word Of Mouth And Heart.

bob withers Big Big Train's Facebook page have been raving about this band for quite a while - 2nd album "Land of Shadows" is marvellous, but this, the debut from 8 years earlier, is equally as good. A real find....!
