4 stars This one has Always been a favorite of mine. Paul Craddick (Enchant) has a tasteful, groovy, flowing but solid way of playing and Steven Rothery never sounded better.

Hannah Stobart is the kind of singer he needs, to really show his talent. Hogarth and Fish are all over the place in Marillion, and even screaming and singing through his solos. For Rothery-fans this is a must-have.

Stobart has a wonderful but sometimes a bit flat voice, not bad, but not outstanding either. The compositions are divided in two ways: the softer, more acoustic ballads (without drums and bass), and the more midetempo rockers. The latter are the really outstanding songs, with lots of dynamics, emotion and great guitarsolo's.

A very nice album, that probably nobody knows about.

Kingsnake | 4/5 |
