3 stars I see the two tendencies in the post-marillion era of FISH: 1. Fish is a great song-writer, which is the most striking in Interal exile. The first album Vigil is still very much influenced by the style of marillion. However, after IE there are less and less melodic and catchy songs in his albums. 2. He has succeded to gather a group of the excellent musicians around him. However, in the first album they could not compare to the marillion guys, in IE they somehow have established a new sound and style and with every new album they got better and better. These two tendencies are clearly recognizable in the Suits but particularly here, in the Sunset of empire. The production is great, sound is perfect, musicianships very fine, everything strong. Nevertheless, I hardly can remember any song of the album. Melodies had vanished, but instead, the scream, rap and recitatives had got overwhelming. The best moments are those which are the simpliest and the most melodic and lets say songy: A worm in the bottle and Say it with flowers. I have the feeling that the last album The field of crows is again very catchy and songy, which has always been the strong gift of Fish, but wait, it needs more time to make any conclusions.
