Marillion's seventh album.

Following the commerical disappointment of Holidays In Eden, the band holed themselves up in Miles Copeland's castle in France for 18 months with producer Dave Meegan while EMI got more and more nervous. The announcement was made that they were making a 74 minute concept album. Wow.

The story is based on an incident where a girl was found on the Severn Bridge, disoriented and amnesiac, and a telling of what might have happened.

Yes, it's a concept album. So what? The songs hold together incredibly well, and it's a great ride. It's very reminiscent of Pink Floyd in spots.
