4 stars I find Hogarth era Marillion very strange. Having loved Fish era, it would seem impossible to have imagined I would enjoy a newn singer and musical approach. But I do, and something which people seem to not pick up on is the ability to create individual masterpieces, which are in excess of 10 minutes. Obviously length does not ensure quality but with Marillion their longing numbers are more exciting and more effort seems to go into them. Numbers such as Ocean Cloud and Neverland from Marbles, This Strange Engine from from the album of the same title. On this album, whilst the music is generally of a good standard, the best track is the 15 minute long Interior LuLu. an absolute classic from an underated album. As I feel with most Marillion albums after Fugazi, it is very difficult to give 5 stars because the music on script and fugazi was brilliant, but the new era still has the undoubt quality to churn out masterpieces. So 4 stars from me. The other songs really worth listening to are The Legacy, God and the very experimental much very nice House. Overall essential album from Marillion and shows they are still the great band of 1983
