3 stars I was wrong about this album. "Script for a jester tear" is not an album so bad.I must hear it again to recognize that ... and now I have to change ALL my review about this album.Still so, as I explained in "Misplaced Childhood"(which I liked the first time I heard him), I do not like the voice of Fish, and perhaps never will like (but I also called this album garbage, right?) .

One thing I would like to emphasize is that I do not agree with those who say that this album was not the first neo-prog (the supposed style "neo-prog" albums of the post-Gabriel Genesis is very different), but I donīt found so many influences from Genesis here, I actually think this album has more influences from new wave.The few influences of Genesis are the voice of Fish and some passages, but nothing more.

3,5 stars, just because of Fish and the influences of new wave.On general, this is a good album, better than I thought.
