5 stars The 80's shine alight. After the dark age of punk(when the bands competed to see which would make the worst song and perform it fastest on stage), progressive rock is intense again and quite popular, thanks to Marillion's risky efforts. Their debut couldn't be better. Script is their best album and one of the best albums I ever heard. The title track is, for me, the best love song ever made, I just can't get enough of it. Of the following tracks, I pick The Web, He Knows you Know and Forgotten Sons as highlights. The influences are clearly Genesis and VDGG and they could not choose better idols. Still, I see plenty of authenticity and creativity here(or else I would not listen to it). Of course Fish is not Gabriel or Hammill but he isn't Vanilla Ice either. His lyrics are good and his voice is nice. He sings in passionate way which boosts their sound up. Keys and guitars are inspired and lively, very well-played. Not a single song here is to be thrown away, they're all gems. Thus, this album is one of the few I reckon as flawless. Script for a Jester's tear is not only excellent but important in the prog-rock history. Purchase one of these to you as soon as possible.
