3 stars Marillion's latest album after the return of Fish on vocals picks up right where Misplaced Childhood left off...........oh sorry, this is a Sean Filkins album? formerly of Big Big train. Well you could've fooled me!

Whilst this is an anjoyable trip back to the 80's, well played, well sung, somewhat interesting and melodious, it doesn't really provide anything new or to be honest, anything really that interesting. Not really Crossover Prog as there is nothing modern or poppy about it, more so Neo Prog. Aa compared to BBT's masterpiece the Underfall Yard, Sean Filkins' debut falls a bit short. Now perhaps it was never meant to be anything else and that's fine, but IMO it doesn't deserve the high ratings it is receiving.

For fans of aforementioned Fish era Marillion (but not as good as Clutching at Straws) and Genesis. Good if you like your prog with a cup o tea rather than, well, a strong black coffee.
