There is life after Fish!
on 1 May 2009
Season's End is Marillion's first album after the departure of Fish. With the arrival of the very capable and distinctive vocalist, Steve Hogarth, Marillion continued, with this Seasons End album, to demonstrate their instrumental prowess and very distinctive Rock heritage.
The flavour of the album is still very much akin to the Fish era, possibly to pander to their large fan base, but with the new vocals of Steve Hogarth there is a feeling that they are wanting to progress and grow, and also demonstrate that they were not just a backing band to the mighty Fish.
Overall the album is excellent, with the truly hard rock "Hooks in you", the immense "Easter" and popular "Uninvited Guest" just highlights of a sensational album. All the tracks clearly demonstrate the bands strengths; a distinctive sound, clear and challenging vocals, incredible instrumentals and a togetherness that very few bands can equal.
A 100 percent recommendation.
