4 stars The first, and only, fully conceptual album from Marillion (minus Fish) remains one of their most dynamic and impressive. As a whole the band has never been tighter and more focused with what they are playing, particularly the rhythm section; Trawavas cranks out some mean licks on this one. h himself delivers many passionate deliveries-- especially during the excellent "Living with the Big Lie" and "Runaway". The band is at its most intense, and most delicate throughout this album, and the contrast between the two do wonders for the piece as a whole. The nature of the songs make them best if played in one sitting, with the lights off... and when ready to feel depressed.

A highlight from their career, and has just enough power to make one feel goose-bumps from time-to-time.

Songwriting: 5 Instrumental Performances: 4 Lyrics/Vocals: 4 Style/Emotion/Replay: 4
