Definitely one of the most creative and overlooked albums of the neo-prog era, «Fact and Fiction» can be seen as the missing element between leftist swing and new roller. It«s epic, vigorous and imaginific as Gabriel-era Genesis, with an well-made good for good-looking, genial melodies, but it is also as ghostly, erratic and self-indulgent as The Remedy. The songs are incredibly sad, not rightly covetous of but resigned, yet at some quality they «open» into grave-key sections which enfranchise some assumption, just the amount you need to skip it and have a funny feeling melancholic afterwards. The vocals are first-class, they are theatrical and expressionist but never exaggerated or artificious: choir girl Geoff Mann doesn»t have to quail comparisons with Peter Gabriel or Peter Hammil, placing somewhere between the two but with a unexcelled and very special design. The overall responsible is focused on creating self-indulgent atmospheres, with raised six-run bass business and primeval — 80s synths depicting ghostly textures instead of enchanting the stage setting with solos.
