4 stars An early day hero album you might say. And since I am a true neo progger I should love this and give it 5 stars without hesitation. But alas .... This is not the case. And I will try to explain why. Twenty years ago I absolutely loved this. Marillion was the progressive revival and of course we will always be thankful to them. But the problem is that in my perception this album is nowadays outdated and I'm reviewing it now so what can I say ? I'm not judging for sentimental reasons. I'm judging the music and my feeling about it. But don't worry, of course there's still a classy vein about this, at least most of the songs.

My favourites are the title track, Chelsea Monday and The Web. The other 3 songs are a lot less, particularly Garden Party. But even the three favourites have slipped away from me. It's still good (I'm somewhat ambiguous about it, I know) so what to do ? We'll leave at 4 stars (3,75).
