3 stars "He Knows You Know" is a single release by UK progressive rock act Marillion. The single was released through EMI Records in January 1983. It was released two months in advance of the release of the bandīs debut full-length studio album "Script for a Jester's Tear" (March 1983), where the A-side appears as track number 2 (although this single version is a shorter edit). The B-side track is "Carting the Single", which is a non-album track. The maxi-single 12" version of "He Knows You Know", features the regular studio version of the title track, a shorter single edit version (the same as on the 7" version of the single), and "Carting the Single".

As much as I enjoy "He Knows You Know" and think of it as a great progressive rock track, featuring lyrics about drug abuse/use, I donīt care much for edits and as "Carting the Single" is one of the least remarkable tracks of the early part of Marillionīs discography, this single is to my ears a bit redundant. Especially considering that "Carting the Single" (which should be the attraction, since itīs a non album track) has been readily available with its inclusion on the "B'Sides Themselves" compilation album since 1988. A 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.

UMUR | 3/5 |
