3 stars This 2007 release by Marillion has the disadvantage to come after the astonishing "Marbles". The album is not bad, but the inspiration, pathos and feelin seem low. It seems as they took something from their old composing sessions and put all together in this album. You may say...there's a lot of bands which do the same (as IQ, PENDRAGON, etc.) but Marillion is the history of Neoprogressive and we always expect more from this talented group. Anyway not all is to throw in the fishes: Hogarth is always a great singer, and Rothery shows also in this album his great feeling on guitars. The opening track is very aggressive, the title track is great, very intense and Hogy sings in his best way, and " A Voice from the Past" is very very great. But only three songs over the average in a ten track CD is too poor. At the end we can say: Where is the Marillion latest album? Somewhere else. 3 stars hoping for the future (since they say there'll be a sequel the next year)
