Prog Reviewer
4 stars NOTE: This review is of the 2CD reissue of Live at Loreley which for the first time includes the entire show.

The Loreley concert took place barely a month after the release of Clutching at Straws, and the complete concert recording includes excellent picks from that, the three prior albums with Fish, and tosses in the title track from the Market Square Heroes EP to boot. That being the case, it's a great live overview of the best of the Fish era of Marillion, and the inclusion of female backing singers - an embellishment of Marillion's sound originating in the Clutching At Straws albums - actually works really well, the band skilfully finding ways for them to enhance the older material whilst at the same time showing enough restraint to know when the backing singers need to be quiet. A great purchase all round.

Warthur | 4/5 |
