3 stars Today, while checking my prog collection, found this forgotten album (as you can imagine not a fav at all). I am now quite happy about this situation. After listening to it a couple of times today, I can not understand why it is not part of my Golden or Silver selection. It is a very decent album. Do not perceive it as a commercial album or absolutely non prog album. It is only different considering who is performing. I think there are some interesting tracks here, like Cathedral Wall (my fav), A few words for the dead and the original and catchy Answering Machine. I think this Marillions experimental album. They tried to update their Prog elements, no Mark Kellys inspired keyboard work here, more guitar presence, no long solos, but the rythm variations are present, heavier guitar appears frequently for the first time in a Marillion album (Seasons end not as much as here). I think this experimental process affected all of us Marillion fans, who love marillions key elements that are not strongly present in this album. Anyway, I liked it after giving it a third, fourth opportunity. Maybe I am now more comfortable with this new Marillion sound.
