I was never a big fan of this album, (I liked the Title track the most, followed by No Mans Land (with it's great use of PPG, Emulator samples and Sitar recreation) and Cinnamon road...and Sphinx Lightning the least...although 19,000 years ago those DX 7 bell sounds were cutting edge ;))...however I think the new EP gives an opportunity to go back and re-visit the album again

It's not their best album, but I've always felt the title track was right up there. Having said that, it was the last TD album I purchased until relatively recently and it gets regular airings.

The last CD until recently ??? :shock: It always baffles me why people still hang around as a fan if they didnt bother with any of the last 100+ CDs ;)

Look, the gun at the back of your head was for your own protection, there were some strange characters walking along that road. Some were muttering something about TB, mind you I'm might have misheard them

Btw did you know that the shop was open until 9pm? we were in their on thursday night and they even had a live band downstairs. Now that's what i call a record shop!

I always liked the entire Hyperborea album, always thought it not quite to the same par as its surrounding recordings, but still a cracking piece of music.
Mind you when S Lightning fired up on Saturday I thought things can't get much better than this !

TD is a train...hop on...hop off. Don't like the train...buy a car ;)

I got sidetracked in the Eighties and lost track of a lot of things, including TD. It's costing an arm and a leg, playing catch-up!

I've got some good memories of when this came out. You know, it was nearly half my life ago - kinda puts it into perspective doesn't it.....
