3 stars I'm not a Marillion fan, never liked their music that much, anyway this album is more interesting than the previous one "Marbles", a really odd work. Of course "Somewhere Else" is not a masterpiece, to me it's a "ordinary amministration" album, I mean it's an album in the average, nothing more, nothing less. It's a good album with some good songs ("The Other Half", "Thank you Whoever You Are", "Somewhere Else", "The Last Century For Man") and some weaker moments ("Most Toys", "The Wound"). Maybe the fact of being so close to a standard definition of average album itself, could raise the question: "If that's the album nature, then it must be a little cold, and not so envolving when you actually listen to it..." and the answer would be: "Yes, it's cold, not emotional at all, anyway from a musical point of view, the songs are not so bad, so it's not a bad album, though it's not able to give you much emotions". With that said, the most correct definition to me is the third stars one: good, but not essential.

3 Stars.
