5 stars This album is one of the most underrated ever recorded! It is almost criminal that it was not a big seller.

By Marillion's standard, this was a rush release! EMI were so disapointed by the sales of Brave that the band were under a lot of pressure not to spend years and money making this one. It turned out to be a real surprise. Better than Brave IMO, this album seems to be the most rounded of all Marillions releases.

Containing beautiful sounscapes, the songs just seem to flow naturally into each other. The only song on here that seems to buck the trend is Cannibal Surf Babe (which many fans hate!) but it is a lot of fun with a dark lyric and has become a great live song!

The rest is just excellent vintage Marillion- Gazpacho, Beautifuil, Afraid of Sunrise, Out of this World, Afraid of Sunlight, Beyond You and King. I can't recommend it highly enough!
