4 stars apart from 3 boats, this is a classic. And, for the record, grendel is in no way on earth a clone of suppers ready and to suggest such is nonsensical. Grendel is a (proto) medieval Nordic tale concerning a *beast* outcast by humankind who is slaughtering nordic warriors in their sleep (particularly the kins-folk of Hrogthar, I believe) It is a re-telling (albeit very *summarised* or else it would last for hours hehe) of the VERY famous tale BEOWULF. Get Beowulf it...and have a deeper understanding of this CLASSIC prog- track Suppers ready is not (-.o) There is no hint of Beowulf in Suppers ready.

I followed Marillion passionately throughout Fish's leading them. From the Marquee to Birmingham Odeon. They were slammed a little early on because Fish does sound uncannily like Peter Gabriel. This, I believe, is why people who do not appear to actually listen to the lyrics claim that it is a Suppers ready clone.

It isn't... Never has been. It is just a classic (-.o)
