Prog Reviewer
4 stars Fish and Marillion said farewell to each other, and it seems that this album was also released as a farewell from Fish to Marillion`s fans as a member of the band. The complete live version of "Misplaced Childhood" in CD #2 was the main reason for me to buy this album. This live version has more power and continuity than the studio version, in my opinion. The only thing that I don`t like from this live version is that "Chidlhood`s End?" is shorter, without the final two verses of the lyrics. But "White Feather" has an extended final section with a guitar solo. The songs from CD #1 are good live versions, but the live versions of the songs "Script for a Jester`s Tear" and "Fugazi" previously released in "Brief Encounter" are better. Maybe as someone said in a previous review, the recording and the mixing are not very good. I don`t know if this album was remastered in the 90s, but maybe it deserves a new remastering.
