What does it sound like?:
This 1997 album by Fish is given a deluxe 3cd reissue.
It features extensive contributions from Steven Wilson as producer, co-writer and guitarist.
The first disc features the original album in remastered form, while the second disc concentrates on bonus tracks and demos, and the third showcases live performances of the songs.
The whole package is rather beautifully presented with a lavish book containing sleevenotes, lyrics, photographs and illustrations.
This is an album that didn’t enjoy great success on its original release, but it’s certainly worth reappraisal as it includes standout pieces such as Goldfish and Clowns, Brother 52 and of course the epic title track.
The demos of the album included provide interesting listening, showing the development of the songs.
The sound quality really is superb, and this is just the first of a series of reissues of the Fish solo catalogue in this deluxe 3 cd format over the coming months.
What does it all *mean*?
An album that is often overlooked, this is well worth checking out. Well written, well played songs and the whole thing expertly produced by Mr Wilson.
