3 stars This album it's maybe the most commercial Marillion's album, and this is not one of their most successfull... But it's not a bad album at all, and it's very better than Radiation, for example...

We have here really pop songs like Cover My Eyes, No One Can and Dry Land, a lot in the 80's way, in a similar style of Mike and The Mechanics or Roxy Music. But there's still some prog/symphonic songs like the great Splingtering Heart, The Party and 100 Nights, while other songs like Holidays In Eden or This Town more rock oriented (I don't like this way of rocking by Marillion...). And this is possibly the best thing of the album, its variety! At least it's not boring...

Good songs for me: Splintering Heart (a very good one, a classic...), The Party, Cover My Eyes, No One Can, Dry Land and Waiting To Happen. All the rest it's a little execrable...

Maybe this is not one of the best Marillion's albums, but It's still enjoyable...
