4 stars This is another excellent release from Marillion. If you feel like they should be innovating, then you will be disappointed. This is more of the same, and will fit nicely in a playlist with any other post fish, slow building, atmospheric, and passionate albums. Speaking of Steve Hogarth, his vocals sound as sublime and mesmerizing as ever. This could be one of his top performances, but there are so many good ones to choose from. The rest of the band sounds terrific with the excellent musicianship that you would expect from Marillion. With all the progressive metal albums being released this year, this is definitely a slow burner that requires a relaxed state of mind. If you are in the mood for something mellow that takes you on a journey, then FEAR is another Marillion release that will give you just that experience.

Update March 2020: Hearing songs from F E A R that appear on live albums like All One Tonight, you get a sense on just how classic they are becoming. The New Kings as one long track on All One Tonight, is just phenomenal. F E A R is an album that is standing the test of time more than other Marillion releases, and that is a tribute to the quality. At release it may have been more of the same, but 4 years later it is deserving an upgrade in score to 4.5 stars. Superb!
