Marillion - A Script for a Jester's Tear

I have my good friend Kevin Owens to thank for this one, and he will be suitably credit for numerous other albums that I talk about. Although Kevin is probably unaware he has played a massive part in my music choices over the years. So, if you want to blame anybody, he's your man.
A Script for a Jester's Tear is Marillion's debut album and although apart from Rush and a little bit of Yes, I wasn't really big on Prog Rock. But this album changed the way I listened to music and I became more lyrically aware. From start to finish this is a beautifully put together album and evokes many thoughts from past relationships and even addresses delicate political subjects. If you are looking for an album to stir you, then this is it. As a debut album, there aren't many better Steve Rothery's guitar solo's are spellbinding and melodic, and the production is sublime. Still one of my all time favourite albums, although I know that its not for everyone, It's having a listen, but don't be one of those people who listens to 10 seconds and skips to the next track. This album deserves your time.
