To be honest, on first listen, I'm not wild about it. It's good but as inventive or original as the previous one, in particular. I absolutely love him, but my first reaction is that this is not up to recent standards. But that could very well change on future listens!

Several close re-enactor friends are huge fans of Bellowhead!
Bat out of Hell is just awesome - one of my all time favourites.

I've recently been very taken by this very weird but compelling version of Tupelo by Sikth. Useful on the cross trainer at the gym! About the birth of Elvis Presley I think!

Oh, don't worry. It doesn't mean you won't enjoy it. I do like it - I just wasn't bowled over on first listen as I had been with previous albums.

I'm being slightly similar in that I have Loreena McKennit's Highwayman on the go at the moment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2CFM4ev-g8
