5 stars I think there are no words to describe the feelings I get when I am listening to this record. Though you can see my profile with the pic of Early Stages, Marillion is not my favourite band, I am more rocker and heavy rocker, but I love Marillion, and specially the sound and the atmosphere they got when recorded Misplaced. It's in my top five albums of all times (together with Just Suposin' from Status Quo, Boston Boston (yes, More than a feeling), Leftoverture from Kansas, The number oi the beast from Maiden and Wish you were here fm Waters & Co.

But I have to say that this record puts me really high, specially in the moments of the Heart of Lothian and Bitter siute. I think those two songs (never know when one finishes and the other begins, my old cassette had something wrong in the duration of the songs) are the peak of the composition in the album. I won't say anything about Fish vs Hogarth (I love both) but if there's a musician that really builds the Marillion atmosphere, that is Steve Rothery. SR, with his guitar reaches really high places, while playing licks under Fish voices....yeah, that melodic guitar when singing that tune of ....I was born ooooooo, with a heart of Lohian, that guitar takes me to the heavens, makes me travel high in my thoughts and feelings.

It's very difficult for a non english speaking person to express his own feelings in this lenguage, but I am sure most of you understand me perfectly, and probably you have the same sensations. For me Misplaced is not only the best Marillion album, but also one of the 5 best albums in the rock history

Thank you for the music
