4 stars Interesting, but yet little bit sinister cover. These two words means probably weird, so this is weird cover. But nice one. Can be cover art better than music itself (just asking) ? Fortunately, this is not the case. One can't know everything and I have to say that I lack knowledge about Marillion of this era. So as far as my ears work, I can say that I like it. That could be enough for me, but not for you, readers. And because I write also from reason to think about music I'm listening and to understand it more, I'll be glad to continue.

Nightwish reminiscent ? I don't think so, using of higher woman vocals doesn't mean NW automatically. And metal part is maybe 1/10-2/10 of these songs. It's quite short and because of this, my rating wouldn't get over 4 stars. Maybe unfair, but little bit over 20 minutes is not so interesting, as 40, or even 80 minutes. It's almost over before you notice anything. No, this is good neo-prog, which has one big mistake, so

4(-) for short length. Believe me or not, but I see it as a mistake.
