Review:
They have just released the second installment of English Electric, which at present time do very well at top 2013 lists. This is part one, which was released last year.
They are heavily influenced by the 70's mainly english prog rock scene, n vocalist David Longdon use much of the same song techniques as Peter Gabriel did as vocalist in Genesis.
This is a well-made album filled w strong melodies.
