Big Big Train
CD Reviews
English Electric 1
Review by Alison Reijman
Big Big Train is an English band, who, as their name suggests, have been gathering speed and momentum over their 22 year career.

English Electric 2
Review by Alison Reijman
Last year, Big Big Train released English Electric Pt 1 to much delight and acclaim.

Review by Larry Toering
Big Big Train are considered a prog-folk band with a pop essence to their sound, and a stronger case can simply be made for the prog side of what they do on Grimspound.
The Difference Machine
Review by Gary Hill
This latest disc from Big Big Train is a fine example of how an artist can combine classic progressive rock sounds with more modern textures in a mélange that, while nodding to the music of others is as a whole something unique.
