3 stars The vynyl of this single was released after we had been listening to two Marillion studio albums Script for A Jester Tear and Fugazi plus one live work Real to Reel. Again, a friend of us in Dodrecht, Netherland send the vynyl to us in Bandung. So, we were very curious about how the music would be consistent with the previous two studio albums or not. It surprised me that Marillion started going disco with Lady Nina because it's not usual music of Marillion. Our disappointment went worsen with the experience playing Kayleigh that did not sound rockin'. It's quite good but too poppy for Marillion.

We started worrying that the next album by Marillion would go totally pop. Only later I knew that when the Misplaced Childhood full album was released I found that the album version of Kayleigh is much better because it has longer guitar solo, unlike the single version. Lucky also that the third full album was not totally pop and it fact it was a great concept album. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
