5 stars This is a real masterpiece and I remember being real impressed by this record back in the early '80's. With songs with an average length of 8 minutes this is real sympho! The legendary song "Script for a yesters tear", "The Web", "Chelsea Monday" and "Forgotten Sons" are real great compositions and sensitive lyrics from Fish. Maybe Marillion had their roots with Genesis but I never hear this simularities in their records with one exeption: "Grendel", here the infuences are to good to hear and maybe that was the reasen they never played it again after a while. Ok the songs are long and with changing tempo's it is real sympho but what is wrong with that? With this record Marillion has raised the Sympho out of the daed in that time! It was an example for a lot of other bands like IQ and Pendragon to maintain their musical direction.
