4 stars The follow up album to their stunning debut album.

This album was also a slight departure from the sound and music on the debut album. Fugazi is a pretty heavy and compact album which really punches hard at times. And I am not only talking about the opening track The Assasin. The overall sound is much more compact and AOR'ish than before.... and later. This is also their most 1980s album with all the negativity that means in my book. It is as far removed from Genesis as Marillion ever was during the Fish era and I feel this was done by intent. The Genesis clone shouts was bothering Marillion at that time.

This album also include a bunch of stunning great songs. All of them, in my humble opinion. I will never deny my adulation for the Fish era Marillion. The title track is the best song here, but the rest is not far away from this standard. This is a great prog rock record and I leave it like that.

4 stars
