The key thing to MK's solo material is he quickly ditched the Dire Straits stadium rock like Money For Nothing and has became quite a musicologist with albums like Rag Pickers Dream and Shangri-La. Incredible songwriting too.

The table is probably the best choice Tongue
 
The planter pot TT is boutique.....probably some yuppie in NYC would buy one LOL

He pretty much will make a plinth out of any hardwood....I am not a Rega fan so these don't interest me much but they are very cool.
 
I want the audio table in his gallery pics, the Pecky.....Very cool table!

Great album - my fave of the five (though the debut comes close).
Incidentally, my version is on the German 'Brain' label, and the cover has a blue border (instead of black).

^ I know what you mean.......Sometimes though I don't want those evolving lyrics, those that don't have mumbly, rambling, s-o-c vocal/lyric styles LOL.

You know, many of the more recent Hogarth-led Marillion albums frequently have this kind of (and I don't mean this as a criticism exactly) mumbly, rambling, stream-of-consciousness vocal/lyric style, so it actually makes me appreciate albums like `Somewhere Else' where things are a little more focused, direct, punchier, etc?

Actually, you've inspired me, I'm going to play it at work right now!

(This will be on my Ipod, I don't have a turntable at my desk....)

Oh, but if I did....

Not a bad album really, but I cannot stand the way some of the songs have a one-line chorus they repeat four times in a row! Lazy and uninspired, I tells ya!

^^ Sometimes I'll jump over to the main site and see what the reviewers have said about the album I'm listening to. It's interesting to see what others think. For the most part their ratings are close to mine but not always.
There are times when I'll see two stars when I would have gone at least four but the opposite happens just as often.
