The most creative of all that most misunderstood breed, the rocking reverend, has done it again! With his trusty band of cohorts (encapsulated in another zany band name variant) and liberal use of Geoff s much loved "wobbly guitar" the Bolton vicar-cum-rocker turns in a fine album, full of muscle, bite, and lyrics which with a luminous beam of truth shine on the turmoil and tangle of life. Pride of place on this album, every bit as good as his classic 'Loud Symbols' is the twenty minutes plus number "The Waking Dawn" which with its suite of themes echoes back to those glorious days of 70s progressive and Twelfth Night (with whom of course Geoff once played). You're unlikely to hear a better progressive rock album this year and when one considers the presumably tiny budget on which it was cut credit and plaudits to Geoff Mann, Paul Keeble, John Maycraft and Gary Mitchell, currently known as Eh! Geoff Mann Band.
