4 stars I've been a fan of Marillion(Fish Era) since my college days. The first album which I got the opportunity to hear was a collection which included all great songs of Marillion(Fish) I searched for all the albums and go it one by one namely Misplaced childhood, Fugazi and Script for a jesters tears. That collection had the track White Russian which I did not know in which album it was. Later, when I found out the album was Clutching at Straws, I tried to get the album but in vain. It was not availabe anywhere in my place. Later witha help of a friend, I got it online. When I heard the album, I realised that it was entirely worth the effort I took to get it, and that I could have missed the best Marillion album if I avoided it. Not only white Russian, all the tracks are just excellent. The track which I like the most was That time of the night. The track started slowly with a soothing lead and then finally increasing pace in the end. Another great song is the Torch song. I recommend this album to all who liked listening to Fish and have ignored this album. Its unfortunate that we Marillion lovers have lost the lyrics and voice of Fish.
