4 stars This is one of the most reviewed albums in PA........... and one of the most important prog albums ever. I will therefore not use much space here. Far more intelligent reviewers has done better reviews than me. Read their reviews instead.

This album is very lush and colourful in it's sound. It also have a modern feel, though it is recorded in the beginning of the '80s and is deeply rooted in the '70s. The likes of Genesis springs to mind. Genesis and Marillion goes together like hand and glove. But Marillion created their own world with this, their debut album. All songs are excellent compositions in their own right. This is a classic album, although not a masterpiece. This album put Neo- Prog on the map and we all have reasons to be grateful. Chelsea Monday and the titletrack is my favorites on an album I have been listening to since I discovered this band twenty-five years ago. A true smorgasboard, this is.

4 stars
