The thing is with BtS is that there is so much going on that they need multi-listens....

There most recent album Untethered Moon (2015?) still has the magic - one of their best.

A bit like Dino - they get better with age!

Would you recommend going to the live album next or another of the studio albums.


Having skimmed Wiki's entry on them I think this album has shorter songs than their usual output, or did it signify a change in direction?

Broken Chairs

Not a patch on the live version but adequate

The common thread remains throughout but you are correct - shorter tracks

I would try the one before this Perfect from Now On - considered by most to be their best

and then the latest Untethered Moon and then everything else between including the live album

If push come to shove Ancient Melodies of the Future is probably my fave
