4 stars Afraid of Sunlight is Marillion's first real creative peak since Misplaced Childhood. Do I need to mention how epic, melodic and emotional this music is? How varied and fulfilling the song writing is? How gorgeous and neat the guitar leads are? I don't think so. Marillion have fully reinvented and re-established themselves with this album.

I actually think this album had the potential to get them a whole new fan base, but due to their history with Fish most of the music press and fans stuck to the prejudice that Marillion was just one of those 'wrong' and 'old' symphonic bands from the 80's.

While this music had the potential to really break out of the self-absorbed prog sub-culture, few people from outside prog circles ever did the effort to give this band a fair new chance. Their loss? 4.5 stars
