3 stars Based on PA reviews I made Script... the first marillion album I got and I'm very glad I didnt make it the last. While it may be a solid debut, this album is certainly not the peak of Marillion's discography or even the Fish era. I think this album benefits from the "wow I cant believe this was their debut" factor when really it is not one of their best albums looking back. The title track is great and still one of my favorites, but I hardly ever listen to the rest of the album anymore. Unless you like listening to albums sequentially, I wouldnt recommend getting this album until you already have misplaced childhood and clutching at straws (and really marbles and brave are better too but its hardly a fair comparison). Some people say it sounds too much like genesis and I dont actually care about that, I just dont think it's nearly as good as their other albums. That said, if you absolutely hate this album, you probably wont like any of the other Fish-era albums either. 3.5 stars but closer to 3
