3 stars Marillion always pull out all the stops when it comes to creating outstanding music, and F.E.A.R is no exception. The band is made up of brilliant musicians/composers and a great vocalist. Unfortunately, a great vocalist does not make for a great lyricist. Let's face it, H is no Fish! His lyrics don't have any flow or rhythm and they always feel condescending. I sometimes feel cheated when I hear such beautiful music undermined by such bad lyrics. It's almost like finally dating the woman or the man of your dreams only to find out he or she thinks the Earth is flat and boats drop off the edge of the world when they sail too far. Anyways, F.E.A.R. Deserves an "A" music wise, and a "D" lyrics wise.

P.S. Don't even get me started on "Gaza" or "Montreal" (Lyrics wise of course).
