What does it sound like?:
The Enid are one of those Marmite bands, there’s no middle ground – you either love them or hate them.
This is a 2 CD plus DVD set. The DVD was originally released in 2004, although it has now been given a bit of a makeover and it is now accompanied by two cds featuring the audio from the shows.
The first show at Claret Hall Farm was basically a fan club performance, while the second features the last ever festival to be held at Stonehenge.
There’s only a few pieces duplicated between the two gigs, and as ever there are some superb performances by the band.
Comes accompanied by a nice informative well written booklet too.
What does it all *mean*?
The band were at the top of their game in this period, now using vocals to good effect after their earlier work had been purely instrumental efforts.
Goes well with…
Their other work and prog in general.
Might suit people who like…
An acquired taste – one for fans rather than the uninitiated!
