Prog Reviewer
4 stars The prog rock legend FISH is back with a new album. It's his sixth studio album, and it's a good one. This album is a more progressive and symphonic than the most of his other album. Some of the tracks could have been taken from the FISH-era MARILLION. If you're not familiar with FISH, I can tell you that there are also some reminiscences to GENESIS and Peter GABRIEL. This album is released on the Roadrunner label, and it's quite a surprise, as Roadrunner is most known for Heavy Metal releases.

The highlights are the opener "Tumbledown", the two beautiful ballads "Tilted Cross" and "Rites Of Passage" and the 25 minutes epic track "Plague Of Ghosts" that is divided into 6 shorter parts. "Rites of Passage" and "Plague of Ghosts" are two of the better tracks I've ever heard with Fish. "Faith Healer" is a cover of a song by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band. "Mission Statement" is my least favourite song.

This is a almost perfect FISH album with just one or two weak tracks. I think that this album or "Vigil in the Wilderness of Mirrors" should be great starters for those unfamiliar with FISH's works. Recommended!
