Only halfway through my first playthrough, but so far liking it, and then I hit "False Lights"... Wow. Talk about instant-fave. Fantastic.

Thanks to Nellie for getting this out on release day!

No, I have it too! Cool Just not had a chance to listen to it yet. It was a big week for new prog albums, with Magenta and Big Big Train also releasing new ones. Will hopefully get a chance tomorrow...

Cool, I just thought it a bit weird that there was absolutely no talk of it, either here or on the Frost forum. I'm a bit 50/50 with it, I really like False Lights as I said, and one or two others; (Everglow, The Big Dream) but the somewhat shmaltzy ballads aren't doing anything for me at all.

I'm on my first listen and I'm quite liking it so far.

It's one of those albums that definitely gets better with repeated listenings. I also think the tracks get better as the albums goes on. Cool

Went to see Lonely Robot last night in Manchester and it was a tremendous night. JM was on great form and he has a hell of a band with him. Craig Blundell on drums was simply immense. The Lonely Robot songs came over really well and a great support performance from Tilt.
Also really great to bump into RussHD, a top bloke if every there was one!
