3 stars Great music, Suits could have become a classic Fish album if only they had cut it down. Make the songs shorter and dumped the filler songs. No need for an album to last 73 minutes when there's only 45 minutes of good material, and 45 minutes is long enough for me. So a missed opportunity for Fish.

If you skip the uninteresting songs, this is what you are left behind with: 1. Mr. 1470 (6:06) 2. Lady Let It Lie (6:53) 3. Emperor's Song (6:18) 4. Fortunes of War (7:51) 5. Somebody Special (5:22) 6. Bandwagon (5:07) 7. Raw Meat (7:20)

From the hard edged Mr 1470, Emperor Song and the poppy Somebody Special and Bandwagon right to the delicate beauty of Lady Let It Lie and Fortunes Of War, ending with one of Fish's best songs to date Raw Meat, which reminds me very much of Cliché, with a great heavy final.

The album in it's entirity get's boring, but the music is good enough to warant 4 stars, just skip the filler and enjoy the good parts of the album which are present when digested in smaller amounts than presented. So I'll substract a star, but listen and judge yourself.
