      The album is very good, and I completely agree with the opinion that its material is already quite mature. I'd say it follows the brit alternative mainstream (yes, the word combination is pretty funny) more closely than Moscow Satellites, which remains my personal choice. The bluesish Cat's Eyes, nevertheless, is very sexy, so it definitely warms the soul of an oldtimer as me) All in all, the album definitely worths the time it takes to listen to, and — believe me or not — the cover design is its weakest point (among a very, very few).

      This second album is similar great like the first! Here i like the sounds and the voice, which goes sometimes in the direction of the great "The Who". Really fine, melodic and powerfull 70ties Rock witn new influences. It's nice to hear such music still at this times... thank you twotimes for sharing your great albums Kosmick

      After the warm reception to deput EP 'Moscow Satellites' it was always going to be interesting how Chris Skinner would follow this up. And now we know, with a 'Symphony', it seems. The pop-rock flicks remain, and offer plenty of moments of the odd feeling of Jerry Cantrell guesting with Snow Patrol. More comfortable creating a sonic landscape, the music may benefit from a more prominent place in the mix for the often catchy vocals, which would further solidify the pop foundations of this record. A diverse and likeable record, stand-out moments include the title track and the intense sonic tapestry of 'You & I' and 'Gold'. Together, these songs offer a form of brutal pop-rock. Yet the 'Alabama 3-esque' driving rock of 'Everything & Nothing' just begs for a convertible on an endless Route 66, with the 8-track jammed to this track, and you wouldn't mind.
