In a word, disappointing. I'd come to expect more from Tony. With the Wicked Lady soundtrack, and so many of his other pop songs with classical themes, I thought he'd find a way to marry it all together. But no. It troubles me to say anything bad about my idol, Mr. Anthony Banks. But I think he missed the mark here. I still would love for him to try his hand at classical music again, but I'd like him to try something more complex and more exciting. Seven is largely sleeper music to me. My very humble opinion. Still respect the man very much, for all the effort he put into it.

I was a bit let down when I first heard this but over time it has really grown on me. I was expecting some kind of Firth of Fifth type thing but if you discard any expectation, it's a pretty cool project.

Not being a huge fan of classical music I was a little disapointed that there wasn't more piano, but it is growing on me the more I listen to it.

Yeah I would've liked more piano. But while not initially impressed the album grew on me the more I listened.

Now I love it and it brings very strong emotions whenever I listen to it. Something nostalgic about it that reminds me of my childhood. Lots of Tony's orchestral music does that for me (either with real orchestra or synthesizer orchestra).

Did anyone see 'Shine' on BBC-1 recently and think David Hirschfelder (?)'s opening music was very like 'Spring Tide' on this?

Seven in general seems to me to be music he couldn't place within a film or a period drama. 'Mona Lisa Smile' could have also done with this - as well as a plotline about Julia Roberts's schoolteacher being a time traveller (Time Lady?) from the future being sent to rescue the schoolgirls from a dull existence!

I like The Ram best, but maybe I'm biased because there are two rugby teams called the Rams - one in Dewsbury as well as in Derby.
