5.0 out of 5 stars Their ultimate masterpiece, 4 Nov 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Marillion.Com (Audio CD)
Since the times of "Fugazi" many years have passed: to use a not-so-occasional example, the same amount of years which have passed from Genesis' "Nursery Cryme" to "Invisible Touch"!, yet many Marillion fans would still hope for one of Mark Kelly's epic keyboard solos at the right moment. That's what I thought when, after the first tempo break of the album opener 'A Legacy', I imagined perfectly how it could fit... Yet the greatness of Marillion is that they always take us fans by surprise. From 'Brave' onwards, it has been a race for the most audacious innovation in sound. That will have made them lose part of their old-times fans, but, on the long run, has made the respect of the remaining improve enormously. About this album, it is still one step forward. "A legacy" is a heartbreaker and "Tumble Down the Years" is a great single (the "Chelsea Monday" and the "Kayleigh" of the 21st century?). But also songs like "Go!", "Built-in Bastard Radar" and "House" deserve the fan's attention. Not to speak about the ultimate Marillion masterpiece, "Interior Lulu": the "Grendel feeling" that we used to love is now fading away, dyed in the hard reality of Bret Easton Ellis' novels and all sorts of dreams in technicolor. This is the Marillion that will stay forever.
