EDITORS’ NOTES

The high-concept colossus that thrillingly reinvented HG Wells for a new era. Few will look much further than opener “The Eve of the War”—with the rich music of Richard Burton’s delivery and the whistling splendour of that melody—but there are pleasures scattered throughout. “Brave New World” crackles with doomed ambition, and “Forever Autumn” (originally composed for a Lego advert) is an unforgettable psych-rock love song set amid the smoking rubble.
