Album of the Day

Fugazi, by Marillion (1984): Fugazi is sort of the red-headed stepchild of Fish-era Marillion albums. It's neither their first album, nor most well known, nor the Fish-era finale. It does, however, mark a major transition with the addition of Ian Mosley on drums, a large step up in quality from the days of Script. . .. And while the album contains my least favorite Fish-era tune ("She Chameleon"), it's got some great stuff on it: "Assassing" (the lawyer's theme song), "Emerald Lies," "Incubus," and the title track (a Vietnam-era acronym for Fucked Up Gone Away Zipped In - killed, in other words).
