4 stars Mr So & So supported Marillion on their 1997 UK "This Strange Engine" tour which is where I first came across this excellent band from Runcorn, England. The song "Coup De Grace" was truly atmospheric and brought a postive reaction from the crowd at the Manchester Apollo.

"The Overlap" wasn't relesed for12 months after that concert but was well worth the wait. Besides the excellent "Coup De Grace" (best prog song of 1998 for me) it includes other superb songs in "Spacewalk", "Salamander" and the title track "The Overlap". Shaun McGowan isn't a strong singer but has a rich colouration in his voice which makes him interesting to listen to. Influenced by MARILLION and PALLAS,the band also are simlar in approcah to the likes of RADIOHEAD and the more interesting of the modern Indie bands.

A disc I'd recommend to add to any Prog collection
