I brought this as a replacement for my 7 year old original albums which are a bit worse for wear due to been overplayed and various house moves, I must say I have many marrillion albums and script for a jesters tear has to be the best by far,, when Hogarth came on the scene it was never the same not saying it's not good but hasn't got that same feel to it, like you can relate to it, that's the magic touch that fish had with his lyrics they captured you, had some obscure feel to them, I don't get this with Hogarth, no matter how good his lyrics are. Still worth the money tho for two albums but disc 1 definitely better. I still think that deep down marrillion are just a wannabe " genesis" band who just happened to get lucky one day if you listen to Genesis " foxtrot" album and play ""watcher of the skies"" with Peter Gabriel you can here the similarities in the music between marrillion and genesis. Genesis definitely been the better band for sure! Marrillion the fish years a close second.
