About this deal

Plus we see how it affected the family, both literal and the band-family – our “loss” in no way compares to their… but we feel it.

Album bello, ispirato, complesso ma accessibile, la cui qualità riprodotta sul vinile (nero, naturalmente) è ineccepibile e di gran resa sonora. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. However, by the Spring of last year, he was seeking to forge a solo career in parallel with continuing to be a leading force within Big Big Train. Inevitably the record arrives in the shadow of that tragedy, but to view it solely in that context would do its creator a disservice.It’s a good thing to know that this album was 95% complete at the time of David’s passing and so what we are hearing is pretty much his complete vision for this set of songs. With that husky, timeless tone of his, David Longdon appeals to us to heed the words: ‘ Love is the only thing that matters, Love is all, love is all. His loss, especially as he was gaining respect and stature as a fine frontman, singer, multi-instrumentalist, lyricist and visionary part of Big Big Train, was both unexpected and shocking.

Overall, listening to Door One reminds of how I felt when I listened to by first BBT opus - The Underfall Yard. This is a difficult album if you knew the man but it’s wonderful to hear what he had been working on in these days before he left us.The quality of the writing and playing on this album make it an absolute standout album of 2022 for me. This is a fine second track and it is a joy to hear David’s voice as he swoops and soars in a familiar manner, the song is certainly stirring with some great guitar. It opens with Into The Icehouse, an instrumental, ambient piece of birdsong and minimal piano tones playing almost a lament.
