4 stars I did not know any of the songs from this album when I acquired, and it was not easy to digest, musically speaking. The prominence of Fish here, takes some of the luster to the rest of the band, except Cinderella Search, in which plays a great role and is a great track excellently executed.

There are versions that are better than in the studio, mainly Assassing, Forgotten Sons, and Market Square Heroes. The successful addition of Ian Mosley on drums enhances the songs that had not participated. The production is qualified for the time, helped in study.

Forgotten Sons is the flagship, probably, of this historic album. A great song to play live with feeling and without the over production takes on 'Script'.

Assassing furthers the story in first person by Fish, in relation to the sharp and stabbing of his tongue, as evidenced by putting out the previous band drummer, it is said. Track achieves outstanding atmosphere in the middle of it.

We can not speak of a work seamless and complete, but contains highlights to possess and enjoy it. 4- stars.
