1 stars I could vitriolically review this egregious album blow-by-blow, but I'll refrain as I'm not into sadomasochism. All I will say is that 'FEAR' is my absolute least favorite album from Marillion. I don't understand the hype that this album has received. Every song meanders aimlessly and stagnantly, ultimately going nowhere. Many of these songs should've been heavily revised or scrapped entirely. Marillion are also great at writing melodies, and the melodies on this album are extremely poor for their standards. In addition, I don't feel that 'FEAR' showcases the incredible musicianship of Marillion, as no musician is given a chance to shine throughout it's bloated 70-minute duration. I detest the title of the album. Steve Hogarth claims that they didn't choose the title for shock value; that's BS. I hate to malign an album from one of my favorite bands, but nothing can change the fact that 'FEAR' is appalling. I have no choice but to rate this album one star. F this album and run.
