Yes, the Family Tree Trilogy is not over. In 2015, Ben Cooper released ‘The Bastards’, a collection of B-Sides and unused songs from the other three albums. Cooper has said there are even songs for the Family Tree project that he has not recorded. Some are sequels to songs we all ready have. Uff. Just do it Ben.
Part 2 of 3. The Branches is the 2nd installment and a stronger performance then the previous (The Roots). I mean ‘stronger’ in every sense of the word. The first full track ‘Holy Branches’ is much fuller then most, if not all, or the entire first Family Tree album. That is followed up by the very strong, and single worthy ‘The Mute”. Overall this is a powerful heart felt album. From cover to cover the strongest of the trilogy.
