CD Reviews
13th Star
Review by Gary Hill
I first became a fan of Fish in his Marillion days. For my money the CD’s that group released when he was the front man were the best of their career.

A Feast Of Consequences
Review by Jason Hillenburg
Renowned novelist John Irving once remarked that the stereotype of the American writer, extravagant talents flaming out their skills and lives in a blast of illness and addiction, struck him as terribly misguided.

Communion
Review by Gary Hill
Fish got his start as the lead singer in Marillion – or at least that’s when he got his first taste of fame. For my money, he is the greatest lyricist around.

Field of Crows
Review by Steve Alspach
Scotland's favorite 6'5" singer (well, how many are there, really?) returned in 2003 with a new CD. Using the figure of the crow as a thematic center to the album, there is a unity to many of the songs in this CD.

Internal Exile
Review by Gary Hill
The lineup on this album is Fish(Derek W. Dick), Mickey Simmonds, Robin Boult, Frank Usher, David Paton, Ethan Johns, Ted McKenna and assorted side-musicians. Internal Exile was released in 1992.

Raingods With Zippos
Review by Gary Hill
While moving in fresh and original directions, this album also captures some of the magic of Fish`s former band Marillion. It seems to take progressive rock to another stage, utilizing much of the magic and beauty of the format, while bringing a new accessibility to the style.

Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors
Review by Tim Jones
Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors is Fish's first solo project after leaving Marillion. The singer-poet gets off to a great start.

Yang
Review by Gary Hill
Part of a 2 CD combination of "Yin" and "Yang", this disc is a collection of Fish rarities and alternate takes. The reworks of Marillion tracks are some of the highlights of the album, but really it is all quite interesting.

Yin
Review by Gary Hill
Along with the companion CD "Yang", this album contains many rarities, reworkings ad other items of interest from Fish's career. This one is especially noteable because of the appearance of Steve Howe (Fish's take on "Time and a Word") and the Sensational Alex Harvey Band ("Boston Tea Party").

Fish - Live in Milwaukee, WI, 2008
Review by Gary Hill
More (and larger) photos from this concert are available in our members area.

I had never seen Fish live before as his jaunts to the states are fairly rare, so I was looking forward to this concert with some definite excitement.

Marillion - Marillion / Separated Out: The Complete History 1983-2002 written by Jon Collins
Review by Steve Alspach
"Marillion / Separated Out" is a very thorough look at a band that, for the last 20 years, has managed to make music strictly on its own terms.

Marillion - Misplaced Childhood
Review by Gary Hill
This album was my first exposure to Marillion, and the first thoughts that I had were that they sounded a lot like Genesis, and the real Genesis, not the pop stuff that the band was putting out by that time.

Marillion - Recital Of The Script
Review by Greg Olma
In the early 80's, when I was a young lad, my life revolved around the music coming out of Europe.  I was totally immersed into the NWOBHM and my trusty friend Kerrang magazine kept me up to date with all the new bands.

Marillion - Script for a Jester's Tear
Review by Gary Hill

Marillion in these days were often dubbed a Genesis clone. Certainly there is basis for that assessment.

Tony Banks - Still
Review by Gary Hill
Featuring both progressive and pop leanings, this solo album from Genesis keysman Tony Banks is a strong effort. There are some wonderful moments here, and no real throw away tracks.

Marillion - The EMI Singles Collection
Review by Greg Olma
I had no idea that Marillion had this many videos.  I'm sure that many of these were never shown on MTV so I guess I can be a bit forgiven for being ignorant of these little video treasures.

Various Artists - The Suite Music World of Gary Hill: Collected Articles Originally Published at Suite101 written by Gary Hill
Review by Greg Olma
This book is not really new material but rather a collection of Gary Hill's articles for a website called “Suite 101."  Some might not like dated material, but I find these types of books enjoyable for a number of reasons.
