4 stars I don't know the exact reason why Marillion released this as the first single of next second album of Marillion, Fugazi. It was released at the end of January 1984, approximately two months prior to Fugazi. Musically the music demonstrated major change in style from previous debut album Script for a Jester's Tear. This highly energetic song that tells a story about unhappy marrage is really different from any style in debut album. Of course, it showed major change in style but the root of Marillion music was still there.

The B-side is basically comprising re-rcorded version of two tracks from previous singles 'Market Square Heroes' and 'Three Boats Down on a Candy'. These two tracks featured John Martyr as drummer before finally Marillion succeeds in recruiting Ian Mosley.

It's an excellent single release, indeed. Keep on proggin' ...!
