5 stars MARILLION were formed as ''Silmarillion'' in Aylesbury,Buckinhamshire,UK by drummer Mick Pointer and guitarist Steve Rothery.In 1981 they shortened their name to MARILLION,the same time when vocalist Derek Dick ''Fish'' joined the band.A lot of important gigs would follow,before the band released their debut album named ''Script for a jester's tear''.Very much influenced by the music of GENESIS and VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR,the band developed their own superb style based on melodic solos,atmospheric keyboards and the theatrical performance of FISH.The abstract lyrics of and the dramatic vocal chords of Fish would give the band an extra mystic flavor,but the album would also include some catchy tunes added for good measure...''Script for a jester's tear'' finally meant to be a progressive rock classic,containing some of the most atmospheric,well-crafted and intense tracks ever to be heard and it desreves till' today a special place in my heart and collection.A true gem of the 80's progressive rock-era!
