5 stars Let's just forget about FISH once was part of MARILLION and let's focus on what he's become and on what he's projected with this first solo career album, because I truly believe that at this point of life and despite the controversies surrounding his departure from MARILLION, it's completely unnecessary to rely on comparisons to prove he's a huge musician. I'm aware that most of FISH's fans got to know him in the first place through MARILLION and then started following his footsteps within his solo career, but still, that's no justification to distrust on what he's been doing ever since he left the band.

Now, what he was able to prove though, more than exposing himself as a recycled part from a former band; is that he accomplished all those dreams and satisfied not only his, but the fans expectations as well. "Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors" shows no lack of creativeness or composure, it ain't some sort of vindicative posture for the public, au contraire, it's a provocative enticing material, it's the return of FISH to his Scottish roots, it's the self-commitment, it's the passion and the feeling of success. This album reveals us all the growth and the maturation of FISH during the years, this is the result of the constant struggle and dedication in order to win that inner revolution he always fought against but specially, he wanted to show it to us, to the fans. Romantic, devoted and passionate, that's the FISH I know, that's the FISH WE know; there's no song I like better over the others this album contains, each one of them is the preface to the next to come. Just brilliant.
