    Fish, fantastic album! A masterpiece, simply your best album, with so much respect to the others. If you don´t come to Brazil, I go to Europe to accomplish a dream of childhood: to be in an audience of your gig. And one more reason now: Feast of Consequences! Thank you again to touch my soul. I bow down to you! Hugs from Brazil.

    Fish – A Feast of Consequences

    Many years ago I sat in my bedroom, the album sleeve of “Script for a Jester’s Tear” held open in front of me, reading the complex lyrics and interpreting them in a number of ways as I examined the artwork and the stunning music of Marillion washed over me. Since Fish left, I’ve bought each album by either party as it was released, but have seldom found that same all encompassing experience I found in the first four Marillion albums.
    Earlier this year I saw Fish at the Tavistock Wharf and something felt different. He’d taken the album writing process out on the road with him and was honing the songs live right in front of us. It was an electrifying experience and I knew we were experiencing something special being created. There was no question; I ordered the ‘deluxe’ version of the album in advance. I informed my family that I would be looking for space in which to spend time with “A Feast…” just as I’d spent time with “Script…” etc all those years ago.
    Then came the bad news, the printers had let Fish down. The album wasn’t coming “de-luxe”, in the short term I would be getting only the downloaded album with the booklet. After a frustrating evening of trying to get my IPod to talk to the album, I simply copied it only my phone and went to bed. At 6 A.M. I was up and getting ready for work. Unable to wait, and painfully aware that the “teenage experience of awe and wonder” I had been seeking was a long way from this; I pressed play on my phone’s music player. As I stood in my kitchen, sipping coffee, the opening atmosphere of “Perfume River” came through my earphones and goose bumps rose on my arms. As I drove through a dawn Cornwall towards work I found myself taking my foot off the accelerator to give the album time to play out. As the best collection of songs Fish has ever written and performed filled my head I reflected that – after all – this is what it’s about: not the packaging, but the music.
    The first thing that struck me was the sound. I’ve always felt that the unarguably talented Frank Usher’s guitar tended to swamp the sound. Robin Boult’s guitar style fits so well into the mix. The album also has a great deal more in the way of variety of sound, with the keyboards and a variety of other instruments adding so much in terms of textures, hooks and atmosphere. The production choices are spot on and each song has clearly been lovingly crafted to the last detail, bringing out the very best without for a moment seeming over produced. It’s good to hear the powerful velvet voice of Liz Antwi, who really adds something special in the places where she’s sparingly, but effectively used. Working with Calum Malcolm has paid off and Fish’s voice has matured and is sounding better here than it ever has in his solo career. He’s turned in a superb vocal performance (helped, no doubt, by having performed them so much on tour, he’s really found the best – and his best – in all of them).
    I’ve found in the past that after a lot of listening, I would end up deleting about half the tracks on any Fish album as they just didn’t move me in the way that his work with Marillion did. There isn’t one duff track on this album. And for the first time since Fish played with Marillion I find myself listening to the whole album from start to finish and loving every moment of its 68 minute running time without wanting to miss anything. In fact, if I have any complaint, it’s that time seems to pass so fast when you’re listening to “A Feast…”.
    After hearing it live, I was sure that the “High Wood Suite” would dominate this album – and without doubt, it’s a show-stopping piece that leaves you sitting in awe-struck silence. Happily though, “Perfume River”, “All Loved Up”, “Blind to the Beautiful”, the title track, “The Other Side of Me” and “The Great Unravelling” are equally powerful. This album is so damned amazing! Everything has come together perfectly to create a classic album. I’ll even say that it’s a masterpiece.

    I have been following “Fish”‘s career for over thirty years now and I have to say when this album was first announced I got really excited. I thought “wonderful” a concept album. I adore concept albums. This is without doubt the best album Fish has produced since the Marillion days. I have listened to the flac download an inordinate amount of times and can’t get enough of it. From start to finish this is a masterpiece and if we were unlucky enough to lose Fish right now at least we would know he went out after releasing the best collection of songs he has ever made. Thank you. :-)

    I thought that Vigil was a wonderful album and remained my favourite until now. This is such a wonderful, exciting, touching, frightening, beautiful collection of songs. I have been playing the FLAC files to death whilst waiting for the special edition to arrive. You have truly excelled yourself here Mr D.

    First thing to say, I usually don’t write reviews, but this time it feels like a duty to do so. Why is it? It is a duty to tell everybody, who was waiting for the chance to fall back into the memories of the “old Marillion” or “Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors ” times, the time is NOW!
    I have been following Fish all along his solo-career (was just 11 when Clutching at Straws was released), all the up’s & down’s and this is album feels like the consequence of the long way back to the roots he was starting with “Return to Childhood”. About the songs and the feelings all the other reviewers said it all and I fully agree. If you want to fall into the emotions of reading lyrics in combination with awesome artwork and again breathtaking sounds, this is the album you should order.
    The title “A feast of consequences” is a self-fulfilling prophecy, this milestone-album is the consequence of his long way back to the roots. All waiting and patience paid off, go and get this masterpiece, it is absolutely worth it!

    I was looking forward to hear the new Fish album, when I listened to it first I Thought it was so great, but after 3 or 4 times on the stereo I started to gasp, It didn’t grow like an album should, not for me, I just thinking what happened? In my opinion this album don’t fit me at all, sorry Fish but this is nothong for me, instead I put the 13Star album on my Stereo and then I smile…But I will give this album more time and I hope I will like it better in the future, but for the time it’s in the freezer,,,

    I, too, have followed FISH from Marillion on. I believe him to be an original artist and showman, sensitive to the world at war with itself. This theme permeates much of his work. I believe ‘FEAST’ represents one his most haunting and poetic efforts to date. This particular release with it’s lyrical finesse and musical arrangements took hold of me immediately and holds up very well for repeated listening excursions. I only wish the deluxe package came with a DTS 5.1 option as well. I think this work worthy of such treatment and hope that someday THE COMPANY will see fit to release FEAST OF CONSEQUENCES as a surround sound experience.

    I lost Fish along the path, sometime around Internal Exile. Can’t exactly put a finger on a reason why, as I had bought all the albums, seen him live with Marillion (inc. final show at St Andrews) and as a solo artist; but I just recall it all starting sounding a bit tired. I have seen albums subsequently released and paid not one iota.

    So…March 2014; flicking through the web and there is an article at the bottom of a web page about Fish’s new single “Blind to the Beautiful”…mostly out of boredom I clicked on it, and instantly heard one of the most beautiful songs I’ve heard in a while. Simple, sincere, poetic.

    I checked out his website and saw the album for sale and purchased on a whim….(go for the Deluxe Version… magnificent!!). This is one of the (very) rare occasions when I’ve put on an album for the first time, sat down briefly to listen, and stayed for the whole journey…and then put it back on and listened again. I was genuinely very taken aback at the breathtaking quality of this album.

    His voice, due to previous medical issues or age, has softened, lost some of its strength, however for me this takes on a sincerity and vulnerability that the younger Fish never quite achieved and that I find easier to connect with and to believe in.

    I will be honest that I did initially find the juxtaposition of the High Wood Suite against the others six songs, which have more modern themes, unsettling, but after 2 or 3 listens it’s epic tale of the Great War sits perfectly within the album and the build up of drama only adds to the stunning effect of “The Other side Of Me”.

    Others can go into more track detail…I still refer to albums as a whole piece of work as oppose single songs, however for me I was gripped from start to finish on an album that is everything I recall of Fish…heartfelt, fun, emotional, ironic, poetic, relevant, sarcastic….but….and I say this very sincerely…..this is without doubt the best thing I have heard this man create….including his works with Marillion….others have indeed said it…but believe them…this may well be his masterpiece….or as I now hope…the work that leads to something even greater.

    Welcome back into my life D.W Dick….Thank you for this gift.

    As a 13 year old boy I remember waiting in line in Mike Lloyds record store in Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire to get my newly acquired copy of Script for a jesters tear signed by the band.

    Being only about 5 feet tall I was immediately struck by the size of the man, as time as gone on I forget the 6″ 5 or so I saw that day Fish has now become a giant.

    Script was probably one of the only albums at that time (and up until now) that really took me to a place that only real music can take you to.

    Feast of Consequences is now doing exactly the same, a true masterpiece.

    I was at the Hard Rock Prog festival in Wales this past weekend and 33 years later after that 13 year old lad was listening to Script (which in my opinion one of the best albums ever) I was awestruck at the performance.

    The morning after I was aching and my voice was a little bit gravelly but I had one of the best nights at a gig for a long time.

    Thank you for the last 33 years and hopefully there will lots more to come.

    I know that I give this album a poor rewiev in january this year… and now I will do an update and say I was wrong. This album with Fish is just brilliant not that I can give it a 5 star…and that’s because I almost never give albums 5 star… A 5 star album for me are Pink Floyd’s Dark side.. or Marillions : Sounds that can’t Be och Clutching at Straw and Some of the Beatles album… It should be diffecult to get a 5 star rewiev… But this Fish album deserve a 4 star raiting, there are songs that are just perfect like “Crusifix Corner” F..king Great maybe the best Fish solo song ever and I also love the hysteric “All Loved Up”

    This album must be one of the best Fish solo album! And I’m so happy that I was so wrong in january. I got the Deluxe Version vid the Autgraph pic and the Book is just fantastic and that’s a 5 star. And now I will order the vinyl version of the album… Thanx for the album Fish and keep on with the good work, please don’t let us wait so long for the next album..

    love from Jan-Erik in Sweden!

    I’ve been a fan since the very first Marillion album. Since Fish left Marillion, I took the path of the following his solo projects. I cannot say that the ‘Feast’ album is the best, I c

    Quite simply one of the best albums I have ever heard. I saw Fish at Bath in May 2013 and the new songs had me hooked, I’m looking forward to seeing Fish again in Bristol this year to see how the new songs have developed on the road.

    This album is one that is on a constant loop in the car. So glad I went for the delux version as the accompanying DVD was well worth a watch.

    Un festin de conséquences, c’est un peu la vie de Fish, loser magnifique qui tutoya les étoiles du temps de Marillion et du début de sa carrière solitaire avant de s’enferrer dans des problèmes légaux, familiaux, physiques, vocaux et, évidemment financiers… N’en jetez plus la coupe est pleine !

    Pourtant, à décortiquer sa discographie depuis son départ de l’icone du néoprog, on se rend compte qu’il n’y a pas grand chose à jeter… Un Internal Exile qui voulait trop reproduire la performance d’un Vigil In A Wilderness Of Mirrors, première livraison du Poisson en solo, d’une exquise tenue, à l’impossible nul n’est tenu. Un Songs from the Mirror, album de reprise un peu faisandé. Un Suits trop surproduit (quoique le remaster rattrapait bien le coup). Un Fellini Days en berne (mais avec 2/3 excellentes chansons !). Assez peu en fait pour un artiste ayant depuis longtemps décidé d’assumer son indépendance totale (studio, label, etc.) avec les aléas et difficultés que ça sous-entend…
    2013. 6 ans après 13th Star, une excellente surprise ceci dit en passant, revoici Derek William Dick avec son 10ème album, A Feast of Conséquences. Rien que ça, c’est une bonne nouvelle. Quand en plus on considère les 11 titres (ou 7 si on entend la suite The High Wood comme une seule chanson) et la qualité moyenne d’iceux, on chavire de bonheur.
    Côté line-up, pas de surprise. Robin Boult a remplacé Frank Usher, jeu de chaises musicales qui dure, qui dure…, le claviériste Foss Patterson, le batteur Gavin Griffiths, le bassiste, et directeur musical depuis 13th Star, Steve Vantsis et même le metteur-en-son Calum Malcolm ont été reconduits. C’est donc un Fish “comme un poisson dans l’eau” qu’on retrouve. Evidemment, à 55 ans, avec tous ses excès mais aussi l’usure d’avoir jadis chanté dans un registre dépassant sa tonalité naturelle, Fish n’a plus la voix du furieux leader qui, de 1982 à 1988, fit le boulot chez Marillion, la voix a changé, est descendue de quelques tons. C’est un fait acquis et, à vrai dire, une transition dans la durée qui s’est faite sans drame pour une destination finalement attrayante. Aussi, la qualité de mélodiste et de parolier de cet imposant géant (2m03), incapable de jouer de quelque instrument que ce soit, n’est pas ici démentie. Autre bonne nouvelle.

    Stylistiquement, Fish ne tente plus de défricher de nouveaux territoires, de se réinventer, il se contente de faire ce qu’il fait si bien depuis si longtemps : un progressif parfois celtisant et toujours rock où son talent de conteur/hâbleur fait merveille. Et donc A Feast of Consequences offre les habituels jalons des albums poissonneux avec, dès le lancement de l’opération un Perfume River, baobab de quelques 11 minutes au lent mais si efficient décollage qui rappellera à ceux qui ont suivi la carrière du grand écossais les heures glorieuses de Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors ou Sunsets on Empire, deux albums essentiels de son répertoire. La suite ne démentira jamais le classicisme d’un opus que, nul doute, les mauvais-esprits démettront comme œuvre routinière quand elle est simplement confortable et, surtout !, redoutablement bien troussée. Et ce ne sont pas les rockers efficaces, mélodiques et bien sentis (All Loved Up, A Feast of Conséquences), la jolie ballade acoustique (Blind to the Beautiful) qui viendront démentir ce bienheureux état de fait, pas plus que la suite The High Wood qui, 28 minutes durant, permet à Fish de nous entrainer du côté des fantômes et des horreurs de la première guerre mondiale mais, aussi, de rappeler que le rock progressif (au sens large chez le Poisson, toujours), et sa portée forcément théâtrale, ben oui, c’est encore son dada et qu’il l’assume (avec beaucoup plus de grâce et de tranquillité que ses anciens partenaires, d’ailleurs) pour un résultat ô combien satisfaisant. Deux autres morceaux s’ajoutent enfin pour un final en beauté (le bel introspectif The Other Side of Me et le progressif si typiquement Fishien The Great Unraveling) histoire d’enfoncer encore un peu plus le clou et de prouver, s’il en était encore besoin, que l’ex-Marillion n’a décidément rien perdu de sa superbe en 2013 ce qu’hélas trop peu de gens auront la chance de constater étant donné le peu de portée commerciale d’une carrière et d’un artiste qui méritaient définitivement mieux, plus.

    A Feast of Conséquences ? 67 minutes de bonheur pour tous ceux qui apprécient leur prog’ moderne mais pas trop, toujours mélodique, habité de paroles intelligentes et de ce petit supplément d’âme qui fait la différence.
