Although this album is a very good one, I can hardly rank it at the level of a masterpiece. Three singles, "Kayleigh", "Lavender", and "Heart of Lothian" were released, with the first preceding the album. So I pretty much expected to be lifted up and blown away. The fact that bands like Yes and Genesis at the heigh of their careers did have hit singles on the pop charts never crossed the minds of those who critize neo prog. Slowly, the energy increases, ".

I can't penalize such a treasure like this for one dud track. Here, the band seems very emphatic on proving that they can indeed play music that is not merely a heavied-up Genesis though I personally have never heard the connection between the two bands besides Fish's singing voice anyway ''Heart of Lothian'' 's opening guitar section reminds me very much of ''Hey You'' from ''The Wall'', which is fine by me!

The tone has then climbed up when he sings "A train sleeps in a siding. There will be some very good moments but too few of a powerful caliber like one could hear in "The Script". It was in mislaced state of "mind" that Fish will: The bongos are a nice touch.
The interlude between "Mylo" and "Perimeter" is fantasticand the pain, loss, and anger expressed through the suite is deep. In my opinion, the song should ends xhildhood with fixed ending, not faded out.
Steve Rothery plays some of his finest solos ever on this album.
Whoever would have thought that a concept album revolving around an autobiographical account of life's ups and downs and societal ills would misplaaced been so popular in the era of post punk and new romanticism? The beautiful artwork was a work childhokd airbrush artist Mark Wilkinson,while the boy on the front sleeve was actually a neighbour of Wilkinson,named Robert Mead,who became a trademark of the band like jester,being part of various singles of the band.
Well at that time, I wasn't into progrock, so I just closed my ears.
Inside there was a short letter from an xhildhood girlfriend with mafillion recommendation to digest the accompanying contents - a tab of very strong acid. The romantic moods are also present in many other parts of the album, because of guitar and keyboards arrangements. This is what also makes this album twice as rewarding compared to the previous two releases. The combination of the two will give an unmet experience. I'm sure this album and especially the popularity of it, is a thorn in the flesh of prog purists but what is the relevance of that debate?
Misplaced Childhood - Wikipedia
These two tracks manage to achieve the usually elusive feat of blending in completely on a classic prog rock album, while simultaneously holding a wide commercial appeal. This is the sound of a band playing together at the top of their game and all in the same direction.
However, modern rock fans might be more into the Hogarth-era Marillion. This album misolaced a real treat chilrhood th Good lyrics and consistent melodies complete the picture. The two further singles were less successful but still ended up at high positions as "Lavender" reached number 5  and "Heart of Lothian" peaked at number The mixture of commercial pop and neo-progressive structures does not work always very well and doesn't provide such evasion as the other previous opus.
Retrieved 1 September Misplaced Childhood has been one of those albums that has really shaped my marillkon recently. And I cannot help to think that the prejudice so many people still have against neo prog derives from the fact that Kayleigh was a hit single. The last two or three minutes are good but also very Genesis sounding.
I can't stop praising this fantastic album, and I don't think I ever will. Misplaced Childhood is the group's most commercially successful album to date, peaking immediately at number one in the UK charts and spending a total of 41 weeks on the chart.
His eyes pierce me and open into a world of black abyss. Don't fear that they are Genesis clones though.
Oh yes, something else I should probably mention. The Scottish narrator is back. I'm really sorry to destroy what to many people is a myth, but this pompous, pretentious, uninspiring album was really a big disappointment.
