Marillion have always been known for creating music that produces lush pictures in your mind as a result of listening to it. This album is no different. The production and melodies all induce a dreamy-like quality that encourages your mind to participate. For 25 or so years the band has been recording music that has changed from progressive rock to straight out pop rock. Throughout though, they have maintained their own distinctive sound. What has remained the same is the idea of producing largely conceptual albums. There latest, which many are claiming is their best album, is not a concept album, but rather Marillion has just recorded an intelligent pop album. There is plenty of melodic, haunting, soaring choruses, and atmospheric music on this their 14th studio album. Without radically changing the style of music they make Marillion has managed to keep recording the music they love and continually gaining fans along the way.
