2 stars Yet another H's MARILLION album.

Well, it's not like I had high hopes for this one. I just download it and listened for few times, just to confirm to myself, that this album is hardly different to any other MARILLION album after 'Seasons End'. Yes, there were some differences from time to time, some better songs, more bad ones, some experiments, more flaws, some catchy melodies and harmonies, more the same ones, and this time we have 20 songs with only 3 or 4 listenable enough to play them few times on repeat. It seems MARILLION want to chart, but they failed once again, losing their face and manner in attempts to sound like COLDPLAY. Poor you old boys, once you were big, and still you can't face that your time had gone. Relax and create music, not make or manufacture it. It could have been better with 8 or 10 songs, but with so many throw-aways it gets only 2 stars from me. What a pity
