2 stars I really really like Marillion.

The first period of Marillion is excellent and instead of descrbing what's so good, I'll try to explain what i dislike about their first full-lenght album.

#1. The drums. Mick Pointer is probably the worst drummer in progrock. He is far from creative and has no dynamics (thank god for Ian Mosley)

#2. The production, Nick Tauber makes this record sound so clean and emotionless.

Mark Kelly and Steve Rothery play excellent solos and instrumental interludes and Pete Trewavas bass- sound is solid as a rock. But the production and the drumplaying really ruins it for the rest of the band.

People are better off starting with Fugazi than this one. Sorry guys!
