Marillion has managed to create a concept album, where all the songs flow into each other and it all works. Before you know it, you have reached the end of side one (for LP and cassette users), and then with no delay, you play side two.
Brilliant album.
Despite the Steven Wilson remix, the 5.1 version isn't that fantastic for me.

Rarely does a prog band put out an album that reaches the masses, but is still among their best artistically. Marillion accomplishes that unusual feat right here.

Thoroughly enjoyable mid-eighties prog pop/rock album. Misplaced childhood, was a magnificent success for Marillion, and is still one of their best, if not their best album. Featuring the massive hit single, Kayleigh, it also includes, lavender, and the, heart of Lothian singles. It's still a great listen today.

The first three studio albums with Fish on vocals were all favourites, Marillion were (temporarily) a favourite band of mine, this was quite different to their first two albums and my introduction to concept albums.

Some lush production and dramatic moments add up to a very good album if this is your thing - really like the first three songs.

From leslie32
a beautifully crafted album tracing lead singer Fish's personal experiences as he grew up into being a fully fledged rock star and the band with him. Love this album from start to finish.
