“The Big Dream” is the second album by mastermind, producer, guitarist and vocalist John Mitchell (Kino, It Bites, Frost*, Arena) and also features the mighty Craig Blundell (Steven Wilson) on drums. Just like its predecessor, 2015’s “Please Come Home”, “The Big Dream” is not a concept album, but connected by a core theme running right through it, and one that sees The Astronaut, the central character in this on-going adventure, emerging from a long period in stasis. “The Astronaut wakes up from a cryogenic sleep,” explains Mitchell. “But he's no longer in space. Instead, he finds himself in a woodland area, where he comes across people who have animal heads! It's a little surreal, and I suppose it mirrors 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' to some extent. This is something of a solipsistic haze, for want of a better description!” Musically, this otherworldly, bizarre and futuristic atmosphere is blended into the songs by recurring electronic or symphonic elements befitting a John-Williams-soundtrack. These are incorporated seamlessly into a vast amount of Marillion-like vocal hooks, wonderful melodies, and some heavy riffing throughout. Thanks to a very powerful and massive production, LONELY ROBOT’s neo-prog-cock truly shines in every aspect, offering many brilliant songs like the singles “Sigma” and “Everglow”, the ballad “The Divine Art Of Being” or the eight minute long title-track which bears all the elements of a Sci-Fi-movie-score. The Special Edition CD has three extra tracks whereas the double vinyl includes the entire CD as extra.
