It`s almost impossible to accept that Steve Hogarth has been Marillion`s frontman for over twenty years, whilst Fish was only the singer between 1981-88!! That isn`t to say anything negative about "H", just that I love Fish. And the first side (particularly the first side) of this album is a seamless, majestic collection of music. I`m reluctant to use careless phrases like prog-rock, as I never felt that pigeon-holing was necessary or appropriate - this is just great music. Marillion were very dramatic with Fish at the helm - the intro of "Slainte Mhath" for example, there`s something of the Pixies - bear with me! - about it. QuietLoudQuiet. And Fish is quite happy to throw in poetry, drama, comedy, peaks of emotional happiness or despair, always beautifully underscored by the flawless Rothery, Trewavas, Kelly and Mosley. I listen to this regularly, and I first bought it on tape in upon release when I was 13...it`s still great music.
