3 stars Massively underrated! Ok, the sound and production may not be great, but there are many hidden gems here. 'Under the Sun' is the sound of a grittier, rockier band, a theme continued into 'The Answering Machine'. 'Three Minute Boy' has developed a reputation as something of a live favourite over the years, and it is a truly wonderful song, certain sections of which harking back to Fish-era Marillion, whilst the lyrics wouldn't have been out of place on 'Clutching at Straws'. The single, 'These Chains' is a dark pop track, obviously influenced by band's like Radiohead and with a great solo from Mr. Rothery. Closer, 'A Few Words For the Dead', is a forgotten Marillion classic, building from a dark and brooding beginning and exploding into a beautiful climax.

The lyrics this time are much darker, Hogarth seemingly tackling his personal life head on, the sound is grittier, and whilst the production lets 'Radiation' down, this one has developed a cult following as a forgotten classic. Give it another try!

Wickerman | 3/5 |
