5 stars Pieces of the ricochet.

Fugazi is indeed a ricochet of Script of a Jester's Tear, a rebound of an unexpected success, with more pressure this time. After giving birth to a healthy first album, they managed to give the best of themselves and it shows: this is Misplaced Childhood quality in terms of melody. The poetry on the other side, seems not to reach the height of the other records though...but still sky high compared to ...well...99% of the rest of the music industry of the time.

One step towards maturity (which means slower songs but with more flavor), and perhaps less dark than the Script, Fugazi aims bullseye almost everywhere. Assassing: a secret message to Mick 'meany' Pointer? Jigsaw: mesmerizing with sadness. She Cameleon: church organ intensity, great moog solo but surprisingly coarse language (rated R). Incubus: the meaning of great neo-prog without being tacky.

Once again, Fish is playing many roles: sad and pathetic man, the jester boosted with pride and the soiled conscience of the guilty mind. The usual, of course, inspired by the great Gabriel himself.

If half those stories are true, let me ask these question: 'Is there a shrink in the room?'

'I am meeting your eye. Eye! Eye! Eye!' -Incubus
