5 stars Have to agree with Logos on this one. Misplaced childhood is a diabolical answer to a prog album and follow up to Script{by far the best album of the 80's bar none} and Fugazi a superb follow up. This albums biggest annoyance is that because it was so successful, {with the two hits Kayleigh{fodder} and Lavender{bearable just about} they released a follow up equally as rubbish in Clutching at Straws.

How this can be called a masterpiece of prog is beyond me.

I rate this cd 1/2 because it is utter rubbish, not prog, at best good pop/rock with some prog elements but not enough to make it stand up as a prog album.

My advice, if your new to Marillion either just buy Script and Fugazi or start with Clutching at Straws and work backwards, youll here the music improve each time. The only thing that I can take that is positive about this album is that is not as bad as the follow Clutching at straws.
