5 stars This was Marillions first masterpiece.

A very dark and personal album to Fish, this was the album which showed the direction the band would go musically and the direction Fish would go (quite literally!)

It is hard to believe that the band were at each others throats when you listen to this album, but it contains some of the best music they have ever put down on CD. Sugar Mice has one of the best guitar solos ever on it whilst Going Under was almost a resignation letter by Fish! We can only wonder at what would have been if they had taken a long holiday after finishing the recording instead of going out on tour and then back into the studio. At least we have this record to remember just how good they became! This record will not date. An absolute classic.
