On writing this review i have listened to the album 5 or 6 times.The problem with Fish is that he co writes all his songs(he writes the lyrics)so he depends on whoever he is composing with to produce a good album.Another thing is that he doesn't seem to have a permanent lineup which means he cannot develop a style of music(i.e when he composes with a hard rock musician he sounds one way the next album he contributes with a main stream musician he sounds another way).
This album has not got any songs which stand out but as a collection of songs it is quite good.There are not in my opinion any bad songs as such but one or two of them sound a little bit dull.The sound of this album is quite mainstream and fish's singing is not as good as when he is singing forcefull progresive rock.
The musicians he has surrounded himself with this time are not bad but they can't compare themselves to Porcupines Tree's Steve Wilson and it is a little bit disapointing that he is not playing on this album.
If you are a Fish fan i advise you to buy this album but if this is the first album you are going to purchase of Fish i suggest you try Raingods with Zippos or Vigil in a wilderness of mirrors

When Fish left Marillion he released some albums with different trends from each other, maybe trying to keep a secure distance from his earlier band but getting almost to nowhere. With "Fellini Days" Fish has been driving his solo career into a more stable path - it seems he finally found out the direction he had been looking for: a different approach from Marillion and a nice signal of a solid and clear future for his solo career.

2.0 out of 5 stars the magic is gone 29 Nov. 2003
By Gordon Kelley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been a Fish fan since 1981 and the early Marillion days. I have nearly everything he's ever put out, both before and after he left Marillion. Singles, rare stuff, live stuff, I'm a big, BIG Fish fan. And I have to say, Fellini Days is probably the worst record he's ever put out, right up (er, down) there with Suits. The disc is completely bereft of the creative spark that drives me to be a huge fan of his. Fish sounds tired, worn out, lost. The melodies are forgettable, the lyrics are bitter and depressed and easily the most boring he's ever written. I loved Sunsets on Empire, I really liked Raingods with Zippos, Vigil is one of my favorites he's ever done, Yin and Yang were interesting re-recordings, and I have most of the live CDs. This is a musician I've driven six hours to see.
I am completely disappointed with Fellini Days. Very unimpressive work from one of my all time favorite artists. It's not that he's changed his style; I like it when artists do that. It's that he just seems to have lost that creative spark, putting out an album that *sounds* like Fish but is empty where it counts. The man is capable of mesmerizing, brilliant, inspiring musical work.....but Fellini Days is a pale shadow, practically an embarassment, compared to what he's capable of. In "The Pilgrim's Address" he sings, "I'm no-one special, just an average guy"....he seems to be inadvertently proving it with Fellini Days. Come on, Fish, I know you can do better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Album! 27 Nov. 2001
By Daniel Del Moral - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This could be easily one of the best album I have ever heard. I haven't follow the Fish's solo career very much, I just heard Vigil two years ago, which I think that is a good album, and had the opportunity to attent to a Fish concert in September of this year, as part of the Fellini Days Tour. This is when I decided to buy this CD. But when I got the CD, I was thinking that it may sound like Marillion, but well, it isn't. It's Fish. It's not better, nor worse, it's just another thing!!! less progressive, more rock, but the same old good feeling.
The entire CD is enjoyable. It starts with 3D, the best song of this album and may be the more progressive noe, an incredible middle guitar (lot of Wesley's influence all the CD long). So Fellini it's the single of the album, excellent song too. Tiki 4 could be the second best song, lot of lyrics. Our smile it's one of the best love song the I've heard. Long Cold Day it's pure rock, very powerful. Dancing in Fog and Obligatory Ballad are good also, but may be the weak part of the album. Pilgrim's Address have a great lyric, no chorus, pure verse. And finally, a great way to close the album, Clock Moves Sideways, lot of feeling. The only thing that I criticize it's that the CD seems too short!! just 9 songs... when I finish hearing the 47 minutes of this great music, I only wish that it would be more.
So, I would recommend this album to everyone, not just progressive lovers, just anyone who like a good soft rock album, because this CD it's just GOOD music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bitter-sweet masterpiece 9 Oct. 2001
By Antonio Paolo Russo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow. What a record. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a five-star that weighs double. Yes, because it is the masterpiece of a dramatic career. From fame and graceful mockery (remember the clip of "garden Party"?), to booze and anger. From the old triumphs with Marillion's jesters and Punch and Judies and Kayleighs to the oblivion (and financial disaster) that followed mediocre albums as "Songs from the mirror" and "Suits", back to track with 1998's "Raingods with Zippos", and now, I would say, fully on the altar of British rock music. No progs, symphos, classic, this is pure, raw, heart-bleeding rock'n'roll. Fish has grown older, and bitter, and cynical. His songs of today are punches to your belly. Out there, on one side, prejudiced music-savants ready to sign him out as the guy who was singing 20-minutes long suites dressed as a Celtic warrior. On the other, spotty wiseheads that are ready to condemn him for the absence of a keyboard solo or for dressing now with a hooligan shirt. Fish does not give a damn and goes his own way, spitting to the face of the world, or charming it with its bluesy and melancholic moods. He dedicates the work to Fellini, one guy that would have been fit in the old Script memorabilia. The master of dreams, of fantasy, of the celebration of life as a fairy-tale. As Fish aspired to be, when peace of mind would be finally found. His love for the artist is transparent. The album starts with 3D, a song about pretending to be someone else (?). The chorus is astounding, the middle guitar theme rocks you, the final brings you back to the mood of another great wizard of psycho-rock, Peter Hammill, and his unforgettable "The Silent Corner and the Empty Stage" of 1973. And another era of the Hammill career, this time the eighties, is encapsulated and brought back to life in the immense rock hymn "So Fellini", that for me is Fish's best single ever. Never before so determined, direct, and at the same time at ease with melody and the fast pace of the music. The next "Tiki 4" is a postcard from the seventies of innocence, Zeppelin nights around a fire on the beach, and big joints, when the world of Fish was less Fugazi. Our Smile, were it 1985, would have sold more than Kayleigh. Long Cold Day is again a piece of hard rock mastery. Dancing in Fog brings us back to the misty atmospheres of the previous album, with a captivating chorus line. Obligatory ballad is a ChilliPepperesque ballad that is possibly the only weak point in the album; I don't particularly like "The Pilgrim's Address" either, but for the inspired lyrics that retrace the footsteps of Forgotten Sons. The album closes with another, dramatic piece, Clock Moves Sideways, straight from the composition room of Marillion's final classic "Clutching at Straws". Fish is strong, is big, is emotional as never before. He does not have that voice anymore, he's got another. Doesn't sing anymore about puppets but personal monsters and the psychiatric hospital out there. Four years ago I wouldn't have bet a penny on him; now he's a permanent presence in my CD player. Long Live this Hero.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fish-Style Brilliance! 9 Jan. 2002
By Russ Bellinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Fish has done it again. He has created one of the best CDs of anything offered in recent years by other artists. The depth of his songs and lyrics, the power of his performance are astounding! My question is why doesn't America embrace this guys genius? He rarely plays in the States because of difficulty with promotion and airplay. He was quoted by record execs that told him that his style of music was dead and that no one was interested anymore in progressive rock music. These people that control the airwaves are total idiots to make such a statement and deny artists like Fish the chance to perform and share his music in this country. He could be huge over here if given the chance for his music to catch on. I have been a fan since his early days with Marillion and have followed his solo career over the years. It has been extremely rewarding to say the least. I was also lucky enough to see one of his few American shows back in January of 2000 in St. Petersburg, Florida. Incredible performance! One I will never forget. Fellini Days is the latest and possibly best step forward. Buy it, you won't regret it.
