It doesn't meet mine. The vinyl has just one track more. The title track is nice and not too much serious. It's a funny song with a celtic Scottish final. Let's dance Not a bad album at all, it was quite a disappointment for me as I was expecting something better, but it's an album that I still listen to sometimes I have bought a very cheap CD edition which contains the same tracks of the vinyl. I think that the current rating that this album has on PA is appropriate. Just a little below 3 stars, but I can't give it 2, I found myself astonished by Vigil in the wilderness of mirrors, but disappointed with the next solo effort from FISH, named Internal Exiles.
There is a clear new direction, free and easy listening, yet less progressi This album came off the back of an expensive legal wrangling with former record company EMI, and the distraction seems to affect things here. This was such a crucial album for Fish but the variety of musicals styles on offer perhaps left some wavering fans confused After "Vigil in a wilderness of mirrors" had been a promising new start for the singer - and a good selling one - he had to discover that EMI payed him only a fifth of the royalities as an artist - due to his contract subscribed as one of 5 members of Marillion!
The record company wasn't willing And you know it's right With ''Internal Exile'', Fish finally found his own voice. While his first solo album after he left Marillion sounded quite like the aforementioned, he had by the time of ''Internal Exile'' found a style somewhere between pop, rock and folk with progressive elements.
Report this review Posted by Luke. J Wednesday, July 30, Review Permanlink. This album contains a couple of my favourite Fish songs, Shadowplay, Credo and Tongues are among Fish's best. The ballads on this album keep really quiet and relaxed, which is enjoyable if you like his voice. The only misser in this album is the coversong Something In The Air which ends the al I don't like Fish solo-career except for Vigil and Internal Exile Believe, I tried but I still don't get it I like Internal Exile maybe for personal reasons -a former girlfriend loves this al Seeing that there are a lot of reviews of this album that seem unfair and off-base, I thought I'd throw in my two cents worth.
Let's not be fooled, this is one of the best albums by Fish. It's certainly heavier and stronger than albums like Vigil and Zippos. Shadowplay starts off rather q A rather weak album compared to Fish's strong debut but it still holds a few gems, namely the title track and Shadowplay. The title track is a very Scottish-sounding song, but very fun and uplifting.
Shadowplay is just short of a classic, and is something I might expect from Marillion when Fish w After years I still find it very nice. It is not a masterpiece, however you can find very nice songs here. First of all, strong melodies take place in internal exile, which had been always the case in previous outputs of marillion or fish vigil , but not so in most later tracks of both. Yet t I am astounded! How could anyone give this lame effort 3 stars? The sum of the parts do not equal the whole.

But there's also weak tracks like "something in the air" coverversion of the well known sixties track or "favorite stranger". The album sounds less progressive as his predecessor, Fish is moving to a rock and rough sound instead of progressive. His keyboard wizzard Mickey Simmonds who did an excellent job on Vigil wasn't the main composer anymore and maybe this is the reason why the album sounds the way it does.
Other band members didn't seem to succeed in keeping the level high. Although songs like "lucky", "dear friend" or just good friend" are nice songs, they are too much easy-listening for my cup of tea. Overall it isn't a bad album but it could have been better. Maybe that's the reason the album selled poorly. If you buy the album, try the remastered version as it contains two extra tracks, the excellent symphonic "poets moon" and the rocking "Carnival man".
In fact, it was quite a revelation but I found it a bit too contrived; as if the man took himself a little too seriously on it. With "Internal Exile", however, he really lets loose and seems completely at ease, for once. With its tight, albeit simpler musicality, the album is more raw and has a much 'cleaner' feel, a style that suits FISH like a glove.
His intelligent, biting lyrics are greatly advantaged by such a style and although the production is far from perfect, you'll find on "Internal Exile" quite a few memorable tunes that showcase FISH's undeniable compositional ability. The spirit of 50s rock 'n' roll, the attitude of 70s punk, and the musical sensibilities of the 80s new romantics, The Vigils have culminated their varied influences to create a timeless sound, unique in any decade.
