4 stars After what is widely considered to be one of the greatest debut albums of all time (and I wholeheartedly concur) Marillion released their sophomore album Fugazi only a year later, in March 1984. Fugazi is definitely not as strong as Script, but not bad at all either. It's a curious album, because some of the songs have a harder edge than anything on Script, but some of them just lack any energy.

The great songs on this album are Assassing, Punch & Judy, and Fugazi. Assassing is a great opener with it's atmospheric eastern tinged intro, Punch & Judy packs a punch (pardon the pun), and Fugazi ends the album with style. The rest of the songs vary from ok to good. No real fillers here, but also too few moments that really shine, apart from the songs previously mentioned. I consider Fugazi to be a great addition to any prog collection, as all other Fish era albums as well.

It's the weakest Fish led Marillion album, but still worthy of 4 stars.
