2 stars Essentially a demo tape produced between Live at the Target and Fact and Fiction, Smiling at Grief finds Twelfth Night dabbling in a range of different styles and getting used to working with new vocalist Geoff Mann. Tracks such as East of Eden may give Geoff a decent chance to show off his vocal chords but don't hold up a candle to the edgy New Wave groups they were inspired by, whilst the two best neo-prog pieces on the album - This City and Creepshow - exist in superior versions on Fact and Fiction. The album is best taken as a grab-bag of ideas and sketches, the best of which were picked out and used to create the group's first fully-realised studio recording; it's an interesting collector's piece, but one for the hardcore fans only.
