3 stars Marillion's sixth album from 1991 - Holidays in eden. To me this is a decent album with some great pieces, some mediocre one, a so so album in the end. They change the musical aproch and direction when Fish departuring the band in 1988 and now they sound more mainstrem more towards AOR-prog with some pop elements. Well is not bad, some good examples are pieces:Cover my eyes (Pain and Heaven), Dry land,Something to happen and 100 nights, the rest are ok. I like the voice on Steve Hogarth, on some pieces is real great, but is far from poetical and theatrical voice of Fish, thats why i consider Fish era to be the best in Marillion career. All in all not much to add, a pleasent album to me, worth listen from time to time, but hardly an essential one like Mispalced Chillhood or Fugazi, the best they ever done. I will give 3 stars, because is a good album, but less intristing and kinda usual in manner of interpretation.
