'One of the most remarkably powerful pieces of music to be released under Fish's name. A Feast of Consequences will be hailed as one of 2013's most essential prog releases.'
Classic Rock Presents PROG Magazine

'Pessimistic and furious, the big man skewers celebrity culture, rues the state of the environment and looks back on relationships. But these are just warm-ups for the centrepiece, an epic suite tackling war and death. It's good to have him back.'
Classic Rock Magazine

'With what is possibly the most dense and intense lyrical work of his solo career, Fish has delivered an absolute triumph. You can buy with confidence — this is his best since Sunsets On Empire back in the 90's. Fish is back on the menu!'
Classic Rock Society

Whilst I don't agree with the majority opinion that this is the best LP that Fish has released during the course of his solo career (for me, '13th Star' takes that plaudit) this is still an excellent album. There's not really a duff song on here and Fish's lyrics, although not as poetic as those in his Marillion era, still maintain great poignancy. This man is a wordsmith, make no mistake and I'm much looking forward to the long-promised book(s). Of course, holding this all together is a great band who go some way to lending gravity to every song presented here from the Vietnam inspired "Perfume River" via the "Incommunicado"-esque railings of "All Loved Up", the great title track, all the way through to the softer final two tracks "The Other Side Of Me" and "The Great Unravelling".
I do feel however that the album is a little disjointed and the sole reason for this is the placing of the five song WWI "High Wood" suite pretty much slap-bang in the middle of the album. This has been remedied somewhat by the vinyl release, which has a slightly different running order, but on the CD version it would have been more logical (in my opinion anyway) to have this set of songs either at the beginning of the album or the end, if that makes sense. And that is the only reason I have docked a star because otherwise, I highly recommend this otherwise excellent record. In fact, if it is still available on the Big Man's website, I would suggest getting the Deluxe Version which comes with a beautifully presented 100 page book as well as the CD and a 'making of' DVD.

What an album this is. It's been a good long while since 2007's quite superb '13th Star' and as far as Fish is concerned, it's been time spent in and out of hospital and traveling.
'A Feast of Consequences' sees the big man in resurgent form. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that this album could well be the best thing he's recorded as a solo artist.
Opening track 'Perfume River' gets things going beautifully. A lovely, atmospheric slow-burner which eventually kicks into life with some jangling acoustic guitars and toe-tapping beat. Inspired by Fish's time exploring Vietnam, it's one of the strongest tracks on offer here.
'All Loved-Up' is a rocky, tongue-in-cheek swipe at z-list, celebrity culture with a catchy riff. Mood-wise, it's a bit of a departure from the rest of the album, but provides a light, accessible respite from the intensity of the other tracks.
'Blind to the Beautiful' is a gorgeous, if a little bleak ballad. Very emotive and sombre in tone, Fish deals with climate change and the ignorance and greed concerned. It's beautifully sung with the kind of thought-provoking lyricism that only he can deliver.
The title track comes next and is another highlight. A great driving rock track; it's an instant grabber that would sound fantastic on the radio.
The main thrust/spine of this record is 'The High Wood Suite'. A mini rock opera based on the horrors of World War 1, it's arguably the most ambitious piece of music Fish has ever laid down. 'Crucifix Corner' and 'Thistle Alley' are the best sections in this opus, with crunching guitars and hard-hitting lyrics that throw you straight into the terror.

I had a splurge recently on Amazon and I decided to plump for this album amongst it.

I have all Fish albums bar for some reason I can't think of Fellini Days and Field of Crows and given the price of those two these days might be a while before i get them. My favourite Fish albums were Vigil and Raingods.

So what did I expect from this album, not sure is the answer, I hadn't read the reviews.

So what did I find.

Perfume River, starts with haunting bagpipes played from a castle top as the mist murmurs against the moat and walls (okay I don't know it was played there but thats the imagery in my mind), then segues into some finger picking acoustic guitar and slowly other instruments come in and Fishs vocals, you might find your foot tapping slowly, and you will be singing along after two or three listens, at 7 mins it dies down then comes back in, not roaring but certainly faster and you get a repeated refrain which certainly you can join in with, cracking opening track.

All Loved Up, a change of pace and style, away from the brooding atmospheric first 10 minutes into a rock song, personally its a bit of a tempo change too far but i can see how it would work very well live, you've relaxed the audience and then you kick it to them. Lyrically about a wanna be someone to become one of the famous rich and beautiful. A Big Wedge for Feasts I would say if looking for parallels.
