5 stars That's Marillion's Magnum Opus in my opinion. This album is more melodious than their first one and is better thought-out than Fugazi . Every composition is good on its own and supplements perfectly the main concept . Maybe it's not so expressive as preceding Marillion's works but here at last emotions are submitted to Music and not vice versa. As to tracks I would like just to point out the most important: - Lavender - one of greatest "little masterpieces" in music. It's really beautiful & touching. - Heart of Lothian - amazing ballade that is full of sincerity and....good lyrics. - Blind Curve is my favourite Marillion's composition ever. Here musicians really do their best - specially Fish who demonstrates all the power of his voice . This song is p e r f e c t - every sound every note are necessary .

You should listen to this album without analysing every track ; that work will impress you only if you are open-minded and not trying to compare it with anything else .

This is one of few 80's masterpieces . 5 stars
