4 stars A remarkably good piece of work...Maybe one of the best of the ''Hogarth''-era!Of course any of you who reject Marillion for been pop must stay away of it!This album is a lot pop- influenced especially in songs as ''map of the world''( the most catchy of the album) and "between you and me''(this is TO close to u2 i think!),but i don't think that this is a problem!"This is the 21st century'' appears to be the best song of the album :ambient mostly with inspired lyrics!The "fruit of the the wild rose" and ''when i meet god" reminded me the older marillion stuff.''Seperated out'' was a funny one and "if my heart..." was also good.What i appreciated most of this album was Kelly's keyboards and Rothery's clever use of giutar in ''this is the 21st century''for creating a ''cyber''atmosphere.On the other hand I was annoyed a bit by Hogarth's voice in certain cases(like "map of the world");it was to ''popish''!I'll give four stars.
