I love this album It is the the fish era best work. However I feel that not including going under and making it a double album with a gatefold album is a mistake. Misplaced had great artwork and gatefold season end after is the same CAS doesn't fit in at all
If you want a full version of this album buy the 1998 re-release as it includes the demos for season end but with vigils lyrics /internal exile

The audio quality of this vinyl sounds much more complete than the CD of those years, ie, the recording was not bad but it was poor form. A tip: throw away the CDs and buy this album on vinyl!

Besides this "Clutching at .." it was a good end of cycle, nothing worse than those groups who can not finish in time, then fatten and finish giving concerts at the end of the world.

Being a Fish fan, I loved almost every single release from Marillion in his good old days; for sure it's a must for all Marillion fans.

One of the best Progressive Rock albums of all time and the best of the Fish era 18 Jan. 2015
By Alan C Walters - Published on Amazon.com

In my opinion this is the greatest Fish era album from Marillion. While Childhood's End generally gathers the most notoriety, I think this is a much better and more powerful album from beginning to end. The personal pain that is present throughout the album may be seen as bleak but it makes the album very personal and very real. Anyone who likes the Fish or the Steve H. version of Marillion must own this album. Buy the album and follow the lyrics. The depth of the lyrics will amaze you. Five stars for a very underrated album. I guarantee that after the first listening you will immediately listen to it again because there is so much to digest.
I will never understand how Marillion is not held with the same reverence as Genesis, Pink Floyd, ELP and YES here in the states because their catalog of work is at least equal and I dare claim better if viewed as a whole career. I happen to be writing the review connected to the vinyl version that I purchased recently simply to satisfy a guilty pleasure of listening to something I already own in several digital formats in analog.
