Regarded as one of the bands standout albums, to me this album exemplifies what this band is about, simply stated do not have any preconcieved notions about this band. The album starts off with an up-beat song in Between you and Me, great lyrically as always and just catchy from start to finish. The album is as varied as anyting they have done with for me the highlights being Quartz (H's vocals are absolutely Perfect for the song) and This is the 21st century, once again lyrically spot on, it might drag for the drummers in the crowd, as for much of the song it has a programmed beat, but when the real drums kick it it is one of the most powerful moments on the album. Catchy moments from a couple of songs that are quite different from the majority of the Marillion catalog or Map of the World and Seperated out. The album closes with an odd number called If my heart were a ball, it would roll up hill to close out an album that is just fantastic. My only complaint here would be that the madfish version didn't include the bonus tracks that were on the campaign edition, I know those songs are supposed to be exclusive to that release and a "Gift" to those who helped out, but being someone that actually still believes in playing CDs and carrying CD's in my car, I really would rather not carry the campaign edition in my car given that it sells for in excess of $100.00 on ebay to replace, so I just wish this digibook madfish version came with those bonus tracks.
