Reviews for 'Grand Tour'
‘Grand doesn’t even begin to describe the epic proportions of this magnificent opus. On a rollicking roll of releases with 2017’s Grimspound and The Second Brightest Star, BBT continues full steam ahead to the max on Grand Tour.’


‘The new album they bring with them, the aptly titled Grand Tour, is as ambitious and intricate as anything they have attempted. After several fine albums inspired by British history — unashamedly romantic and nostalgic — the seven members have spread their wings.  That means nine songs encapsulating the rise of the Romans, the Renaissance and space travel with soaring choruses and Mellotrons a go-go.’

John Bungey - THE TIMES

‘a musically bold and conceptually dazzling masterpiece that establishes the seven-piece as one of the pre-eminent progressive rock bands of the 21stcentury.’
