    Great episode! I’ve loved this album ever since I first heard it in 1979. As usual, the crew each gave an insightful analysis of each track. It’s funny that most people I’ve ever talked to about SEBtP over the years end up saying the same thing about The Battle of Epping Forest being great instrumentally and very clever vocally but overkill when taken together. I wil say that I found it odd that no one mentions Phil’s drumming which, while always great, is truly spectacular on this album. Also, having Steve Hackett’s commentary was quite special, so kudos for giving us that!

    FYI: undinal = of or related to an undine, which is a water nymph, especially the kind that sing songs that urge sailors on.
