4 stars Marillion's first album with Steve Hogarth is so different from its predecessors that comparing them directly is almost a worthless proposition. "h" has a completely different singing style; his phrasing, timbre and inflection are very unique... and honestly, much more controlled and professional than Fish's. Moreover, the band itself is actually starting to sound like a refined and calculating unit. They seem much more in control of their music and sure of themselves, interesting considering the shock the departure of Fish caused amongst their fan-following.

As for the songs, they are all top-notch. "King of Sunset Town" is a monstrous introduction for their new singer, while "The Space..." closes the album with just as much power. Fan favorite "Easter" and "Uninvited Guest" are good examples of the band's changing sound (with only "Berlin" and "Holloway Girl" sounding anything like previous albums. The songs are infectious and artistic, oozing with great playing and emotional singing. Great listening for all but the most jaded Fish loyalists.
