2 stars Never before or since have I heard an album so dull, boring, and devoid of life. I apologize to all the Marillion fans, but I just can't seem to get anything from this album. This was my only sample of the Hogarth formation of Marillion (though I would like to try more........have to listen to some samples on the site here). There is no doubting that these are competent musicians, I just think the songwriting and atmospheres are far too "samey" and, well, dull. Hogarth's voice, at least on this album, seems rather bland and uninteresting. At least Fish has some character to his limited vocal range. Hogarth certainly is the better technical singer, in terms of range and ability to hit the correct notes and pitch, but the result for me is just dull. Anyway, an interesting concept and story, but quite depressing. Perhaps that has something to do with the dull sameness of the compositions? I don't know. Surely for me this is a matter of taste only, so rather than pan this completely and give it 1 star, I will round up to 2 because I seem to be in the minority on this one and fans of the band always seem to hold this in high regard. I simply can not.
