Album of the Day

Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors, by Fish (1990): OK, so it wasn't on the same level as Roger Waters leaving Pink Floyd, but in the wake of Fish "going solo in the game" from Marillion, there were doubters who figured both parties would never be the same. Commercially, that's true. But as Seasons End showed with Marillion, Vigil . . . showed that Fish could do well on his own. We the considerable help of guitarist Frank Usher and keyboardist Mickey Simmons, Fish cranked out a group of good (sometimes great) tunes that acknowledged his prog past but showed that he was interested in other areas.
