3 stars Marillion have once again proved that they are masters at their game. Some of the playing (notably drums and keys) are amongst the best they ever did. So why three stars? Steve Hogarth needs to forget the high tones, and Steve Rothery sounds like he forgot to turn up for recording and his best moments sound like he played them whilst in the bath.

This is a great album with a wonderful steady flow. There are no real stand out moments, but consistently good. BUT, this will never be their greatest memory. I cannot understand how some people can think that. CD1 gets a 4 star because of the dreamy state it puts you in, and the fantastic flow of the music (shame about lack of guitar input from Rothers or it could be a 5) CD2 stays in the box most of the time. Yawn. 2 Star (2.5 if it was an option)

Overall 3 stars (3.5 if available!)
