4 stars This was the best record of Marillion... until Marbles appeared. This is a very strong effort, considering EMI was about to drop them and been threatened to create a commercial album (that didn't happened, but they created a very good single), however, the album features very deep ambient sound with great straight-forward rhythms. They're right to mention that producer Dave Meegan forced them to compose and jam a lot, leaving him the job of choosing the songs to the final stage, beacuse they trusted his 6th sense, and his great ear. So, the record shows a matturity never achieved by the band, with a very tight and impressive timing, with continous music from start to end. Actually, they crafted their most famous pop song in here: BEAUTIFUL, and the most complex of all: KING, leading the listener into a rollercoaster of emotions. Ths best song without a doubt is AFRAID OF SUNLIGHT, with so many textures and colors. This is a record to be aware of how a great band can create a marvellous album when everything else looked lost.
