  1. I enjoy it when small orchestras cover prog rock, but this is a refreshing swing towards the minimalist side. TD is being well-served. Nice work!

  2. Just like the original recording this was assembled in the studio and isn’t a live recording. However both are stunning, well done.

  3. This sounds much better and more pleasant than the original. The Poland album, as many TD albums, sounds so dated. I would have liked maybe some smiles when playing – the students in the video look like this is a boring homework. But the end musical result is good.
