Field of Crows - possibly the best Fish album ever
on 19 January 2007
This just rocks. As a Fish fan for years, since the Marilion days, I've had a ove hate realtionship with some of his music direction, rescued by "raingods with Zippo's", but then dumped by the self indulgent Fellini Days, I was a bit apprehensive about Field of Crows, but from the very start it just hit home immediately. The balance of Frank Usher and Bruce Watson bounce off each other, FRank standign out with his somehwat unique style.
Its amazing to read the reviews on amazon.com as opposed to these on co.uk.. this album really got tongues wagging and fingers typing.
True, with hindsight, Fish should maybe have never left Marillion, thats history, but had he not, perhaps we woudl never have had the long wandering path through many styles, ups, downs, and roundabouts whcih brought us to this absolutely fantastic album.
Only one criticism, maybe some of the "bridges" are a little bit on the longside and to muddled, but hey, no-one is perfect..
