Clutching is Fishrillion's peak. I don't like anything Fish or Marillion have done as much since.

Used to love Misplaced Childhood over everything else they did with Fish, now I'm all about Clutching at Straws.

Does the Market Square Heroes E.P. count ??
For the poll, my fave is Fugazi. I have many fond memories tied to this album from back in the day.

Went with Misplaced Childhood though I would have chosen The Thieving Magpie if it was an option, I much prefer the live Misplaced Childhood over the studio version Wink

Been Script for some years then Misplaced for even longer...switched to Fugazi and now it is Clutching.

All excellent though, very strong 4/4.5 for many I think.

No! choose one of the options or be prepare to feel the ex-admins wrath!!!


of course, it counts. Feel free to mention any live ones too...I recently bought the 2cd 'Recital of Script' (one of my most played VHS back in the day) and, yeah, it brings back sweeet memories.

Been mostly between Misplaced Childhood and Clutching at Straws. All enjoyable. For most Script songs, I prefer hearing the live versions over the studio ones.

I've been back and forth with all of them (except for Misplaced Childhood). At the moment, Fugazi.

Fugazi>Clutching at Straws=Misplaced Childhood> Script for a Jester's Tear.

But Seasons End is greater than all of them.

Fish era Marillion is the only Marillion for me. I've always been partial to the underdog of the group FUGAZI although all four early albums are excellent!

When I listened to Straws yesterday - first time in over 10 years, easy, I was astounded at just how beautiful it sounded. I obsessed over this album back in the late 80's - early 90's, and my humble LP has just sat there in the crate forever since. Fantastic album, I love Mosley's china cymbal, it has a real 'snap' to it. Love everything about it, really, but the first thingy with Grendel is the winner for me.

I know Mick Pointer was one of the core members of the early band.
But to me one of the worst drummers in progrock ever.

I'm afraid to say, but he didn't improve much in Arena either.........

Clutching followed by Misplaced...

Ah a band I've really been getting into lately. So far I think all four of those albums are very good, but for me(and again I just very recently started listening to it), the debut just edges out Clutching at Straws.

I always preferred Fugazi and Misplaced Childhood over Clutching and Script. Today I pick Misplaced Childhood.

A friend of mine once played some demo (?) tracks sung by Fish, that ended up on Season's End.
None the less, a great debut for h.

These demos are on the bonusdisc of Clutching at Straws. :D
The lyrics ended up on Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors.

Oh yeah, Vigil is another goodie - I actually found the vinyl of this in a 2nd Hand shop no more than 2 weeks after its release !!

I'm baffled that CAS is winning, always considered this album to be a poor Misplaced Childhood copy (in everything, from flow and structure to actual melodies and lyrics) - the only song I love there is "White Russian".

Script for me, easily the most important record in my life

Script is fantastic. Possibly the best prof rock album of the 80's if we don't include Rush, ands consider 80's Rush to be prog rock.

Fugazi is a solid follow up, with some classic tracks (Incubus, Emerald Lies) but a move to more accessible and less 'mysterious' sound.

Misplaced Childhood blew my mind at the time, but bores me now. Too self indulgent lyrically, ad includes Lavender, their worst ever song.

CAS is well produced, well performed prog pop. Has it's moments, but by that time I was more into It Bites, for that kind of vibe.

Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Misplaced and clutching

Misplaced Childhood used to be leagues ahead, but Clutching at Straws has practically closed the gap for me after years of repeat listens. While Side 1 of Misplaced is flowing gold all the way to end, Side 2 was always struggling to reach that peak. Clutching is more consistent and Incommunicado and Sugar Mice I never tire of. Script is pure nostalgia from those dark days of the early 80's and worth a spin still - although Fugazi was always one I struggled to find as engaging - and I've really tried over the decades. The Market Square Heroes 12" single is of course legendary!
