The album is opened with an album title track: "Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors" which brilliantly located as an opening track to set the overall mood of the album. For me, the first lyric of this track reminds me to the occasion when I first listened to "So here I am once more. of Marillion's debut album "Script for a Jester's Tear".
Pitting band vs. singer in a classic tabloid war of words, mud was flung, lawyers were hired, lawsuits were filed, and Marillion quickly moved to hire new vocalist Steve Hogarth. Soon thereafter, the band released the excellent Season's End to much critical and commercial acclaim. Also, from a fan's point of view, it's important to keep in mind that any time a band of Marillion's stature splinters into two factions, anticipation for new product from both sides is always enormous.
