This record is like a blast of sunshine,or maybe it's just a blast! The band seems to be having a lot of fun on this one, just like they were on the previous album "Radiation". This album is a step up from the their last two records. Marillion is definitely exploring some new territory here and reinvents itself for the third or fourth time already.
What we get is a revision of their tradition-rooted prog rock into a 21st century context and it brings their sound and vision very closely to the emotionally laden song writing that Porcupine Tree was doing in the same year. So it's no coincidence that Wilson mixed some of the tracks here. They were both very much on the same wavelength. The song writing is very effective indeed: from straightforwardly rocking out to laidback, subtle and even lounge when needed. Their newfound sound would come to blossom on Anoraknophobia, but this album already contains lots of outstanding music.
