4 stars The last two studio records of the Fish era Marillion were a wreck in my opinion when I first them inmediatly after their release. Now 20 years later I still believe that of MC, but TLS is a real winner. Here we have a band evolving in their sound, graduating to a new perspective and just expecting Hogarth to show up. You can hear the guitar sound in songs like Torch Song and Slainte Mhath and youŽll know what I mean. In the other hand Just for the Record is a celebration of the times they were leaving behind, a new Market Square Heroes and they were singing and playing it with the heart, try not to get goosebumps withe Mark Kelly solo, impossible, and Incommunicado is a pop prog song which I love love every single time I play it. All in all a good record and certanly the last straw of one of the best bands in the eighties.
