4 stars Excellent Steve Hogarth's debut album with Marillion. But not a masterpiece, of course.

This album it's in the style of the previous with Fish, with a sound close to Misplaced Childhood and Clutching at Straws, but maybe a little more rock-oriented (The Uninvited Guest, Hooks On You...). The main guitar of The King Of Sunset Town reminds me a lot to some parts of Misplaced Childhood, but songs like Easter (the best Marillion's songs in my humble opinion...) and Season's End are different, and we can see the great influence of Steve Hogarth in the band's sound. Maybe a more pop oriented in this album and the later Holidays In Eden, but still very progressive in works like Brave and the recent Marbles.

I don't give this album five stars because there are some songs thatn I don't like very much. Season's End I think it's a little boring, as much as Berlin, while other songs like The Uninvited Guest and Hooks On You aren't bad, but there's not the kind of songs I like from Marillion...

Great songs for me: The King Of Sunset Town, Easter (everyone should hear this absolutely beautiful song, one of the best songs I've heard in my life...), After Me (very nice acoustic guitar...) and The Space... (with insteresting Pink Floyd's echoes...)

Very recommended, but maybe not for Fish's fanatics...
