This was initially a free disc the band produced themselves, and offered through their website and fan club. It was meant to introduce new fans to the group, giving a sampling of songs from various Marillion albums, but focused on the Steve Hogarth era, the albums after the departure of Fish. It has had various incarnations, this was the first.

It's sort of a greatest hits collection for a band that doesn't focus on hits. Marillion has had one or two songs chart, but you won't find "Market Square Heroes" or "Kayleigh" here. This is a progressive rock band, their sing tend to be more complex in structure and subject matter than the standard pop song. This is a fantastic live band, evidenced by the amount of live releases they continue to produce. There is only one live track here, but it is perhaps the strongest, especially to newcomers, and that is "Between You And Me". The song, and it's performance, have a great energy to them, one that isn't found in most of their songs, but one that will pull many listeners in. "Man of a Thousand Faces" is another strong track, more evident of the groups style.

It should be noted that every track except one exceeds six minutes. This is typical of Marillion, of prog rock in general. They are creating the modern equivalent of a classical music piece, they don't restrict themselves to a for minute, radio friendly time. If you get antsy with music art a few minutes, this is not the band, or genre, for you. But if you have the patience to let a song develop, this is a good place to start. Take a crash course, get to know the band, if you like what you hear here, there is much, much more to discover.
