Progressive folk? Not sure of the classification, but I like this:

Just briefly went over some videos after seeing that.


That is a weird band in a way; and I like weird.


Quick thoughts.  I need to look at more of their stuff for more than just a minute or two.


That band doesn't need two guitarists. 
Not everyone needs to play so much.  It creates a wall of sound that just becomes generic.
Great singing.  Great concept for a band. 
I need to hear more of this.

That lead singer has got a very Peter Gabriel voice, I have a double CD of theirs English Electric. It can take me a long time to digest music and I'm still on the fence about them, but nothing puts me off, so I wouldn't be surprised if I come to appreciate them.

I quite liked this song. This band is getting appreciation from the Progressive Rock community, it's interesting there are quite a few bands making Progressive Rock out of the spotlight but that have reasonable sized catalogues and I suppose do ok.
