Some good some okay Some dire

Hawkmartin

Some of the most awful lyrics on any Marillion album; in particular "Thank You" and "Last Century" which has the most ludicrous lyrics they've ever done. Some decent songs of which the title track is the best. But oh the production... is so bad!

Listen

First, I am suprised by the bad reviews. I love this CD. True it is like most Marillion you cant judge by a quick listen you must listen repeatedly to get the full effect of this CD. Yes, it is about his divorce and becasue of that I think that track 5 Somwhere else is a well written heart felt song where H wears his heart on his sleave. Starts out slow and builds to an explosion very typical for Marillion who make music that is more than just background music. It is made to be listened to in the dark and played loud so you can be swept along on the journey with them.

I disagree with my friends on this one

djsmed

I read the negitive reviews and I must say, I was a bit confused. I have been a major Marillion fan for many years and I have every album they have ever done. I think this one has some hight points. "Thank you", "Somewhere Else", "The Wound" and "Last Century for Man" are really great songs. There are certainly some dead spots as well, but overall a good effort.

Disappointing

clubbaker

I really don't like writing an unfavorable review. In a mad dash to reinvent themselves with every album, they created Somewhere Else. Written around the time of Steve Hogarth's divorce, most lyric reflect it. As Marillion has always been a producer driven band, the switch to producer, Mike Hunter, proved to be a major departure. In my opinion, the sound quality lacks as the final mix and engineering seems to have washed all of the dynamics from the music. Dont worry, the band and Mr. Hunter redeemed themselves two years later.

Throwaway CD

KatwomanProgger

I wish I would have downloaded this before I rushed out to buy this when it was new. Its much easier to throw away files than flinging frisbees. Probably the worst Marillion CD, get Marbles now available on Emusic

A disappointing effort with one gem

phatone

Marillion's my favorite band, but this is one of their worst efforts. It's poorly produced and the songs are for the most point undistinguished. The exception is The Last Century for Man, Hogarth's plaintive despairing for the state of the world. You need to download this song. For a much better Marillion offering, check out their double album Happiness is the Road.
