This review is from: Happiness Is the Road, Vol. 1: Essence (Audio CD)
If you have found the last few Marillion albums rather bland, and prefer either thier Fish-era output or the earlier, and superb, Hogarth albums, you will not be disappointed.
I agree with many of the comments in other reviews. The production, once again, is lacking, and there is not enough of Steve Rothery's sublime guitar work.
But this album gets your attention immediately, unlike the last two or three offerings which have had some stand out tracks but not enough strength in depth.
So, a strong recommendation for an album which will keep most (if not all) Marillion fans more than happy.
