From manurock
In the contrary to most opinions, I feel that Fish era Marillion have their right to be considered apart from Genesis. TBH I enjoy them more. This album, their debut, may not be as even as their follow ups but it has some fantastic guitar and keyboard riffs and Fish's vocals are as smart and bombastic as always. The title track should be considered an all-time rock classic.

The first band I ever saw live (Real to Reel tour) so I have a real soft spot for Fish led Marillion. Excellent and accomplished debut with six strong tracks. Obviously influenced by early Genesis but bettered by Fugazi, IMO, but only just.

Brooding and pulsating, with vivid, heart-pumping imagery.

Great album, amazingly deep and meaningful songs, ambiance created and fish voice is scary good. Genesis would be proud of his little brother :)

If the 1970-1975 Genesis lineup would have remained intact and evolved, this is what they would have sounded like in 1983. Vocalist Fish is an original, however one cannot help but recall Peter Gabriel. Too bad 70s prog-rock did not sustain full momentum into the 1980s. This might have been one of many quality 80s prog-rock albums instead of one of a few.
