And that's it! The rest of the album misses the target by miles, the worst Fish era album they made. IMO! cheesy

It's also my least favourite of the four Fish-era albums. undecided

I know that Fugazi is the least popular of the Fish era Marillion albums, but frankly I couldn't give a toss! grin wink It is my favourite Marillion album full stop and was my introduction to the band, at least it was after Real To Reel. I love the heaviness of the music and the darkness of Fish's biting lyrics. Amazingly I still only own it on vinyl but I am soon to rectify this. That said, I don't understand the point of the bonus second CD that comes with it now, but it seems that the single CD version is no longer available. undecided So I'll end up with the double CD version.

I have the double cd version of Script and Holidays In Eden and both include some really great material. So ending up with the double cd version of Fugazi might not be that bad, after all.

But the Fugazi bonus CD is Three Boats Down From The Candy and Cinderella Search - both of which I already have on B'Sides Themselves - plus demo versions of some Fugazi tracks. I have very little interest in demo versions of tracks. undecided

Some great choices there. I'll have to check out That's Me as I don't know it. embarassed Funnily enough, I am not a big fan of Waterloo, though clearly it did a job. I think that S.O.S. was chronologically the first great ABBA single. It's interesting that Glen Matlock claims that it was an inspiration for Pretty Vacant by The Sex Pistols. shocked

Yeah - Waterloo on the whole is not their best song - but that intro has got to be one of THE BEST intros in any pop song - let alone ABBA's records - hence it makes my top 10 for that reason alone! smiley

That's Me is from their Arrival album. - It is mainly sung all the way through using the girl's harmonies which sound great:-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mP_dk429rbc&feature=kp

I'm not sure why I like it better than other Abba songs with harmonies - but it is just a good catchy tune I guess! smiley


Funnily enough That's Me is one of my favourite songs on both an ABBA album AND a Genesis one! grin

Also what is strange - is none of my top 4 ABBA tunes ever made it to No1 in the UK!! - shocked

Fair enough. But very often you don`t get the t - bone without the vegetable.

Just listened to ABBA's That's Me - nice song. smiley When you mentioned Genesis, I thought you meant That's All but I now assume you mean a bonus track on From Genesis To Revelation. That's Me is not on the original 13 track version of that album.

Oh - yes forgot they had That's All as well as That's Me! wink

Yes - That's Me is the one I like - I think it's on a later edition of FGTR - it's definitely on my copy! - Another song that should've been on the original!
(Going Out to Get You - should've been on as well!) wink

Pink Floyd 1970s studio albums:

1. Wish You Were Here
2. Animals
3. The Dark Side Of The Moon
4. Meddle
5. The Wall
6. Atom Heart Mother

I haven't included Obscured By Clouds because I don't own it and am not that keen on it having heard it a couple of times. Controversially, perhaps, I regard the 2 soundtrack albums separately from the main studio albums. If anybody else wants to do a similar list and include OBC, they are welcome to do so. smiley
