Spiral Realms is Simon House (High Tide, Hawkwind, Third Ear Band, David Bowie) with Len Del Rio and this was the second album to come out under the Spiral Realms banner. Completely instrumental, the material is generally well-structured and melodic and is a pleasing combination of melody, sequenced rhythm and effects.
Seasons End was the first album recorded by Marillion after the split with Fish in late 1988. The band started to audition singers while writing the new album, and they eventually chose Steve Hogarth, former keyboard player and singer in "The Europeans". the Seasons End Tour is the biggest tour Marillion has done with Steve as the band's singer.
