2 stars Like Rico said above, something is missing here.

There is the typical Marillion mix of Pop, Prog and 80s (Even though its the 90s) and it is anything but spectacular. The instruments don't seem to flow as much as earlier Marillion did like Hogarth's debut on Season's End or the amazing era of Marillion where the legendary Fish was their singer. Unfortunately, this was an extreme disappointment after the exciting Hogarth debut on Season's End. None of the songs are spectacular and the repetition that Marillion uses on this album bothers me. Maybe its worth a listen, but it isn't spectacular.

(Note I am creating my own scale of rating)

90-100- 5 Stars 80-89- 4 Stars 70-79- 3 Stars 50-69- 2 Stars 49 or below- 1 star

This album is as close to a 1 star album as Marillion can go, but it isn't THAT bad.
