This is highly regarded, but I find it lumbering. I also find it a bit too polished for its own good. Yes, I know, it’s supposed to be all-conquering – “World’s Best Orchestra”; “Visionary Conductor”; “No-Expense-Spared Marketing Campaign” etc. – but it all adds up to a bloated Planets. It’s the Elephant Planets. (I was going to call it The Hippo Of Planets, but that doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.)
