3 stars A nice album but a shadow of previous work. Hotel Hobbies and White Russian are real masterpieces wich are real Marillion songs but overall I think they tried to reach the succes of Kayleigh because the songs are less complex then before. For example Going under, Just for the record, Incommunicado, Sugar mice are very average songs with not much complexity in it. It is obvious that Marillion have tried to reach a broather audience with this record. To much of a top 40 level I think but nevertheless a nice album wich attract me once in a while skipping some songs away it is good to listen to. One of the important things of this album is that it was the last performance of Fish befor he leaves Marillion. I remember feeling sad about it in that time and this record was the last straw for the fans of Marillion with Fish! Nevertheless I give this album 3 stars because the most of the songs are to average!
