2 stars Fish has been relatively quiet in terms of compilation efforts. The first two considered as such were "Yin" and "Yang" which consisted of some re-work of Fish as well as genuine "Marillion" songs. "Yin" was particularly good.

But for this one, I really wonder who decided the track list. Or maybe it was to avoid the competition with the prior two ones.That's the only excuse I can imagine.

Because frankly, there are more second tier than great songs available here and as such it is hardly a recommendable work. Some tracks still stand out as the excellent "Goldfish & Clowns", "Credo", "Brother 52" as well as "Lady Let It Lie" (one of my fave from the big man) but globally this compilation is not really worth.

Neither for the fans, neither for someone willing to enter his catalogue. For the latter ones, I can only recommend a good live album or a couple of original studio works of which his debut has my favours.

Two stars.
