5 stars This album is very special for many reasons: 1) It is the last heroical statement of Fish in front of Marillion 2) It marked the middle point of the old Marillion (in songs such as Warm Wet Circles, Incommunicado, White Russian and Slainthe Math) and the new Marillion (Going Under, That Time of the Night, Just for the Record) 3) It contains one of the most heartbreaking songs I've ever heard in my life, Sugar Mice. Definitely, one of the best albums in the Fish era with all the members playing at a great level. Fish singing with passion and such a power that makes you shed a tear with Sugar Mice; Steve Rothery with wonderful guitar solos and arrangements, Mark Kelly working as usual with excellent keyboard sounds that rescue the neoprog category. Ian Mosley and Pete Trewavas, working with the accuracy which is a feature in them. One of my favorite albums of Marillion!
