It's hard to single out a few tracks as it is more an experience as a whole and a lot of the better moments (IMO) are pretty short stand-alone songs such Lavender, Lord of the Backstage or White Feather.

Very true for me. More so than with any other Marillion album, it's the whole Misplaced Childhood concept. Very hard to take individual tracks out of it, apart from K and L of course! ;)

You just cant take tracks out of MC, it has to be listened to as it was supposed to be, Straight through :) I know singles were released but i think this was more down to EMI than the Band :?

Script for a Jesters Tear
Assassing
Jigsaw
Warm Wet Circles
Last Straw

Like previous posts I don`t think you can break up MC. As for the H -era stuff, well that`s an old discussion nowadays and would be a separate list, ".... but I know what I like and I like what I know."

Hmm... this is really hard. Can't even do them in order, so these are my top 5 in no particular order.
And I squeezed in one MC (extended) track. :P
A top 10 would be easier, but still hard.

Chelsea Monday
Jigsaw
Blind curve
Cinderella Search
Sugar Mice


Other contenders: Warm wet circles, Slainte Mhath, Forgotten sons, Assassing, and Script for a jester's tear
