    wiki says "uk prog rock band"....
    lots o folky stuff on here that expands outwards,
    these guys are very proficient musicians judging
    this album...
    a good album that will get another listen or two
    by me over the next week or two!

    Big Big Train get a lot of mention on prog music fora. They are a band I probably SHOULD check out in detail at some stage. I think they wear their Englishness on their sleeve, which is fine by me, I think the English folk sound mixes very well with progressive rock.

    I used to listen to a lot of internet prog stations when Live365 was going, and they popped up from time to time. I remember enjoying what I heard, but not desperately feeling the need to hear it again - something that happens a lot with bands in the prog field.

    you mentioned their "English folk sounds" bob...
    one of the first things I thought of when listening to the album (in places) was Jethro Tull.
