2 stars Fish breaks out of Marillion and want to get his own identity by not releasing Clutching At Straws # 2. Which is pretty understandable.

If not wanting to release Clutching At Straws # 2, where to turn next ? To the radio friendly pop/rock market. Fish voice and in particular; name, should guarantee a hit record. The music is a blend of epic uptempo tracks and epic ballads. Bagpipes gives this album authenticity and flavour....... the marketing men said.

In 1990, that may be the case. 2011, the music here sounds dated and dull. The lack of any good songs is also a problem here. No hit songs and not much else either. This is a decent album, but not more than that. The best thing is Fish vocals. The rest is best forgotten.

2 stars
