About this deal

He had much greater range than even I had expected, and yet he always performed with class and muster.

There’s No Ghost Like An Old Ghost” is next, kicking off with Jeremy Stacey’s drums, a highlight of many tracks on this album.Right from the opener “Into the Icehouse” with its cinematic music, you can tell that David was trying to do something new. The opening has hints of David Crosby’s jazzy inflections and song structures as well as the harmonies.

Il grande frontman dei Big Big Train ci ha lasciati un anno fa, ma non prima di dare libero sfogo alla sua arte con questo album solista di indubbio valore, nel quale la sua voce inimitabile (anche se a lungo era stato accusato di "imitare" Peter Gabriel, Fish dei Marilllion e altri celebri cantanti del progressive più illuminato) valorizza al meglio alcuni brani bellissimi. Forgive (But Not Forget)” is another great one; it is something of a ballad with lots of space for David to emote and hurt. This album took a little while to grow on me but by the time I saw it live I was in love with its humongous, over-egged pomposity!A reflection on his craft, The Singer And The Song must be at the very least partially autobiographical. Birdsong, echoing piano and a building cinematic atmosphere characterise instrumental prelude Into The Icehouse, an Eno-esque mood-setter that, in a kinder world, might have served well as intro music to a live show. Je peux conseiller Common Ground aux amateurs de rock progressif symphonique, de préférence à ceux qui ont un goût pour les sonorités seventies (mais pas que). Catchier still is There’s No Ghost Like An Old Ghost, a consideration of past regrets, secrets and lies (‘ The loose ends you’d left unaddressed’) and their nasty habit of resurfacing later in life, ‘ with bones to pick and an axe to grind’. The quality of the writing and playing on this album make it an absolute standout album of 2022 for me.
