Big Big Train – Grimspound (2 LP Vinyl with Autographed Postcard)
This is a Plane Groovy release.
Our favorite bards are back with tales of heroic pilots, scientists, artists, poets, mead halls, and meadow lands on 2017’s Grimspound.
“Grimspound had been trailed by the band as a follow-up / companion EP to “Folklore” but took on a life of its own to become a linked but stand-alone full album release. It’s very much the next step in the journey and development of the band, with Danny Manners and Rikard Sjöblom getting musical writing credits, and the lyrics still helmed by Longdon and founder Greg Spawton.” ~ Sonic Perspectives
“It is no wonder the band were so intent on pushing out this new album only one year after ‘Folklore’. The band is as in synch as they have ever been. They are in that rare space that some bands get in, where everything they do is good. As Longdon sings on the final track, “All Here Is Good”. Indeed it is.
Big Big Train are the reincarnation of all the good elements of classic 70s Prog, done in their own unique way. If you never liked Big Big Train at all this is an album that might stand a chance to convert you to a degree. If you were already a fan, you should adore this album. Grimspound is a treasure, containing some of the best this genre has to offer, from a band that right now can do no wrong.” ~ The Prog Report
