4 stars Marillion is definitely exploring some new territory here and reinvents itself for the third or fourth time already. I lost count. What we get is a revision of their tradition-rooted prog rock into a 21st century context and it brings their sound and vision very closely to the emotionally laden song writing that Porcupine Tree was doing in the same year. So it's no coincidence that Wilson mixed some of the tracks here. They were both very much on the same wavelength. The song writing is very effective indeed: from straightforwardly rocking out to laidback, subtle and even lounge when needed. These guys surely did take a good lesson or two from Radiohead. Their newfound sound would come to blossom on Anoraknophobia, but this album already contains lots of outstanding music.
