4 stars The only track that fails here for me Is Big wedge which sounds like an advertising jingle for cheese. Its probably supposed to be taken with irony as the lyrics suggest but the irony is overplayed in the music making it sound like a blatent commercial statement. The rest is of mixed styles but on the whole successful, the opener sounding like a less restrained Marillion especially demonstrated in the use of delay on the guitar which is reminiscent of Rothery. The Company is a fabulous folk tinged tune and other highlights include Gentlemans Excuse Me which is how ballads should be done and View from a Hill is a hard rocking song about Fish's disillusionment with fame. Great debut, hights he wouldn't really scale again for a few years.
