1 stars This is Chapter Three of MY BIGGEST PROGROCK DISILLUSIONS. I'm a Marillion freak from the very beginning, we used to play "Grendel" until we were drunk or fell asleep! Their first album was wonderful Genesis-inspired prog and their second put them on the map as a pivotal neo-progressive rock band, it's also their most mature and original record. The third album is 50-50, half is good, half is boring, it was an omen to the next LP "Clutching at straws". When I bought this record and listened to it, I realised that it was over with Marillion because Fish had disturbed the balance, he had become too dominant and was too busy with his alcohol problem. On this album I could find only a few moments that delightened me but in fact I had to admit that the wonderful period of following the early Marillion had come to an end and that was very painfull... and still hurts because early Marillion and Fish are my heroes!
