Marillion were in pretty good stead when they released “Clutching at straws” in Their previous album “Misplaced childhood” took them from being the obscure heroes of the second wave of prog with bands like I.Q and Pendragon and transformed them into a well established 80’s rock act with plenty of demand with fans from all over the spectrum/5().
On Clutching at Straws, Marillion have a harder, more guitar dominated sound than on Misplaced Childhood. Steve Rothery's guitar work is excellent, even if he borrows heavily from U2's "Gloria" riff in "Just for the Record." the songs are more compact, which suits Marillion's writing style. Despite the more conventional song structure, the band really manage to evoke a variety of moods very effectively/5().

Clutching at Straws () is a fine follow-up to Misplaced Childhood and is one of my favorites released during the period. This would be the last studio album with this vocalist however (Derek Dick "Fish"), and is a fine example of how Marillion updated the s progressive rock sound with rock styles popular at the time.
