Customer Reviews

On this album he seems to get a bit over the top and really go a bit too far at times.
Steven Sly
One of 4 best Marillion albums ever, right on par with Sript for a Jesters Tear, Misplaced Childhood and Clutching at Straws.
Pieter A. Delepper
An album of politics, blaring guitars, and heavy keyboard interludes, this album grabs you by the shirt.

I first heard this album (yes, album)when it first came out. "Assassing" held my attention; "Punch and Judy" made an immediate purchase necessary. Marillion is a band that can be listened to on two different levels. On one hand, one can superficially listen to a very emotional vocalist spouting dark poetry, backed by a superb back up band with a clean, clean guitar, passionately soloing. On the other hand, if you sit down with the lyrics (sometimes, not entirely accurate), you can find deeper, hidden meaning within lyrics worthy of study at a College level English class.
Unlike, "Jester's Tear", which has some high points but which I find to be uneven, "Fugazi" has no low points. Each song is a finely crafted mini-opera. I would personally love to see a director take each song and craft a video for them. The subject matter is a dark view of relationships with women and the hardships they cause. Feminists beware, at this period Fish holds women in very low esteem. The only song not about relationships is the first, which is a slice of 80's upwardly mobile life, where you shove, walk and kill to get ahead. If the subject matter is a little dated, Rothery's guitar makes up for it.
In closing, Marillion fans are torn over vocalists, Fish versus Hogarth. Each has his admirers/detractors; this is one of the two finest moments for Fish. The other is "Clutching at Straws" a sobering and revealing look back at life through the bottom of a bottle.

I was surprised to see only 3 previous customer reviews for this album. I first discovered Marillion when I found the vinyl LP "Script for a Jester's Tear" at my local used record shop, back in my teen years. I'd never heard of them but the album art and themes just grabbed my attention, and needless to say that record is a classic. I think Fugazi must have already been out because I found it shortly thereafter in the same record shop. I was already a fan when "Misplaced Childhood" was released and I was fortunate enough to see the band twice on the U.S. tour for that monumental album. And I saw them again for "Clutching at Straws". I do prefer the Fish era, but I liked some of Steve Hogarth's work with the band too, it just changed a bit too much for my tastes and it departed from what had drawn me to Marillion in the first place. "Fugazi" in many ways is an ending...it has such moody, downbeat material that the next record couldn't possibly have been any darker, and then they delivered the magnificent "Misplaced Childhood". The first two albums mark Phase 1 and the latter two mark Phase 2 of the Fish era. I think "Fugazi" is generally the least-heralded of the Fish-era Marillion albums and this is a shame, because it's fantastic. If you have any interest in Marillion and you are not familiar with this album, check it out. You won't regret it.

The mid '80s were an interesting time for pop music. Some bands let keyboards drive them (Eurythmics) and some bands let their guitars do the talking (Big Country). During this same period, prog rock experienced something of a revival. And Gabriel era Genesis inspired Marillion led the way. With musicians par excellence (Steve Rothery - guitar, Pete Treavus - bass, Ian Mosely - drums, and Fish - vocals) they really took off, at least in England. In america, the best they could muster was an opening slot for Rush on the Power windows tour.

Fugazi is the middle album of a trilogy and represents the first record by the classic lineup with Mosely having replaced Mick Pointer on drums. An album of politics, blaring guitars, and heavy keyboard interludes, this album grabs you by the shirt. Where Script was uneven and Childhood bombastic, this album was much more succinct. That said, Script and Childhood are also musts, but this one is my favorite....The song Incubus is CLASSIC

Fugazi was one of my least favorite Marillion albums - that was until I really began to listen to it. Less immediately catchy than Misplaced Childhood or even Clutching at Straws, Fugazi holds some of Fish's most poignant lyrics and the music is often subtle - exactly what the songs call for. I would never have thought that a lyric including the words "cold linolium" could be touching. Fish and Marillion make it so.

Outstanding example of progressive rock. First album still the best, but this is a close second. A must for Marillion fans.

I'm a big fan of the Fish years, I have every album. If i want to tell the truth this is the one i like least,that's not to say I don't like it, I do. its hard to put in words what i don't like but I'll try. First i don't need or want to hear every song twice (demos) it just seems like filler to me. second, to my ear it just doesn't have the kick that Clutching at straws (my favorite) or script for a jesters tear does. If your a fan as i am you must have this one ,

Long time Fish-era Marillion fan -
This is simply the best sounding Fish - Marillion album, the dynamics, bass, etc. just sound HUGE (I have the double CD late 90s remaster) - while I love "Script", " Childhood" and "Straws", those albums sound "skinny" as far as dynamics while Fugazi sounds - as I said "Huge". Assassing, Jigsaw, Incubus, and Fugazi are bona-fide classics. The B-sides - the re-recorded "Three Boats Down From The Candy" and " Cinderella Search" are among their best work and sound just as huge. I don't know what it is but this album just fills the room or the car- again - huge!

In short - the dynamics make this album a favorite - check it out - turn it up - and you'll know what I mean

I would have killed for having the other three Fish-era albums sound like this...
