It has grown on me a bit more, in no way a bad album but it just does not reach the heights of the two Nagasaki albums for me. still at the moment I would give it 6/10.

1st listening : Very mellow.


I don't get that wonderful nagasaki feeling, unfortunately.


It'll grow...

Red Train isn't Nagasaki !!:roll: :roll: This album is something totally different and very beautiful! It seems to be absurd to constantly measure TD with their own terrific compositions.... Hey, TD are able to compose so much different music - it's simply magic!

Red Train is something very special, indescribable, dynamic with great guitar work - it reflects a fantastic journey by train through different landscapes and it's totally different from for example TRANSSIBERIA. I think this is the only album which Red Train could be copmpared with as they describe a similar theme - a journey by train!

:D Received all my goodies this morning, including the Edgar T-Shirt which I only ordered on Friday 18th - Now that is what I call service!! No signed card for me unfortunately.

My evening will therefore be a TD evening and I will post my views in the next day or so.

Just can't wait to get these in my player. :D

A taster for the Full review:

10. Sound Of A Shell: My initial reaction to the start of this track was ‘Eh, have I got the right CD here’? it sounds like it should be the beginning of a Bjork song. With it’s playful almost ‘innocent’, echoing synth sequence. Don’t worry though as it’s soon added to by a warm rounded bass pulse. Soft choir chord changes slip in almost un-noticed complete with soft ‘hey yeah’ female vocals and percussion ‘crunches’ to remind you a rhythm might be coming (like a Berlin train it’s bang on time). A double-tempo sequence is added, and the track builds with subtle changes to the sequence as it chugs on and on and its here that Edgar and Bernhard play their trump cards (well it’s acoustic guitar really) and they quietly pick out a few notes each. The lightness of touch floored me on this track; it’s a perfect way to end the album. An emotional kick to leave you moist eyed and fumbling for the repeat button, 6 minutes and 41 seconds of shear musical perfection. If I could I’d be giving a big fat 11 out of 10…so there! Catch you later I’m off to buy some shells (10)
