Not a bad way to end your all too brief career in Marillion now was it Fish? A stand out album... a forgotten classic that is always shamefully outshone by the band' s previous album: Misplaced childhood. A great album undeniably but so is this! The angst,the booze addled Influenced prose and the musicianship is glorious. Fish went on to have a successful solo career and Marillion the same as they went their separate ways but this album often makes me wonder what else they could have achieved together if the differences in the band had not existed? But then without those differences and tensions would 'Clutching at Straws' have been the classic that it is?
Alledgedly Fish is retiring this year from music. His final tour will see him performing this album in its entirety all of 31 years after its release. I for one will be there to witness it live. Buy this album!

For some reason, I did not own this album on CD or Vinyl. I have seriously missed out on one of the best prog rock albums ever produced. It has elements of Genesis at their best and Pink Floyd mixed in with the Marillion style and Fish sounding at his very best. The vinyl has good sound quality, possibly lacking some treble detail on a couple of tracks, but generally very dynamic, textured, and clean. My favourite Marillion album. If you like prog and don't own this, you need to order it now!
