3 stars Marillion's second album, a fairly strong release but definitely the weakest of the Fish era. The opening track "Assassing" sounds very promising, with it's symphonic yet modern sounding keys and well placed vocals, as does the second track "Punch And Judy", my personal favourite track on the album with great strings and punchy vocals by Fish. After this point, the album becomes very bland, with a string of three same sounding emotional prog songs. However, the album has a few more tricks up it's sleeve redeeming itself with the penultimate track "Incubus", which you can clearly here influenced bands such as Tool and A Perfect Circle. The final track "Fugazi" is also good, a track with Genesis like qualities and very catchy drumming from Ian Mosely. By no means a bad album, but certainly not Marillion's best. Fans should enjoy it though. 3 stars.
