4 stars This is one of the latest albums added to my mariillion collection... only a couple are missing now, so I've had the fortune of listening to most of their post-fish era albums from Season's End to Marbles. I was a little cautious of this album as it appears to be reviewed as one of their weakest albums (along with Radiation). I was very pleasantly surprised - Man of a thousand Faces is a great opener, and now one of my favourite Marillion tracks.. and there is no shortage of beautiful tracks such as Estonia and Memory of Water.. and great upbeat numbers like An Accidental Man. Overall the album fits together well.. and I'm still waiting for the truly 'weak' Marillion album.. if there is one!
