There's a reason why they've been off the radar these past 3 years and it was to make the album of all albums. This album is the best they have done. There isn't any bad tracks on it whatsoever.
For 12.99 you would expect to get better casing but with 16 absolute stonking tracks (only 12 on the normal edition) it is well worth it paying the extra few quid.
My personal favourites are Sovereign Light Cafe, and and On the Road. Neon River and Silenced by the Night both come in at a close 3rd.
But don't let me influence you. Buy this album and you be the judge. I can almost certainly guarantee that you won't be disappointed.
I just wish that they would release a live album now. Studio recordings don't show off Tom's vocal talent. The bloke is a legend in my eyes.
This album is truly incredible from start to finish!! It's a must buy! Some songs hit you straight away like silenced by the night and disconnected, the 2 singles and other songs like on the road and day will come. But other songs creep up on you and are excellent growers such as neon river and in your own time. It's definitely worth listening to more than once if it doesn't grab you the first time as it really is a classic and I feel over time you will think it's better than all their previous work or at least equal to it. It's a great mix of all their music so far but at the same a new, fresh, positive sound! I'm in love with every song but especially watch how you go, on the road and sovereign light cafe. The latter is truly stunning and one of the best songs ever written!! Sea fog is a beautiful stripped back ending to the album which even the critics of the album still seem to love a lot. The bonus songs on this deluxe edition are also incredible and just as good as the 12 album tracks. The actual track strangeland is truly beautiful and run with me is very catchy!
Overall, after a dozen times of listening, I believe this album is there best yet and is a must for everyone's music collection. It is full of passion, beautiful lyrics and gorgeous melodies that no one could possibly resist!
