4 stars Well, I only have the 1 cd version so I guess I am only entitled to review the 1st disc only :p~ Many would say that Anorak is one of Marillion's weakest effort up to date. Yes, I join their mailing groups and (I guess) more people in there somewhat dislike this album. On the other hand, I love Anorak. I may even say this one is their hightlight album since Afraid Of Sunlight. I am not saying they're going in the right tracks. It's just the feeling of listening Marillion tracks that I have been missing during the "This Strange Engine/Radiation/Marillion.Com" albums is present in Anorak. The first four tracks are like throwing my head to the floor and say "this is it...!!" Especially on "Map of The World" and "When I Meet God", these 2 songs are lyrically beautiful. The low point that I think could have been avoided is the song "If My Heart...". This song seems never gets on to me. I just can't stand listening it :-) Too bad that it is on the last track either.
