Raingods with Zippos is a 1999 progressive rock album by ex-Marillion vocalist Fish. It was released on the Roadrunner record label, more well-known for its heavy metal releases. Raingods with Zippos is often hailed as one of Fish's greatest solo achievements, along with his 1990 debut Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors. It is the first of three Fish albums to be produced by Elliot Ness (not including the "best of" collection Kettle of Fish from 1998, with which Ness was involved)

With "Raingods with zippos" though, Fish seems to be prepared to make much more of a band album, and the result was probably his most progressive album yet. Porcupine Tree's Steve Wilson is brought in as occasional guitarist, joined by an impressive array of competent musicians who ensure that performance wise the album cannot be faulted. The first couple of tracks are clearly written as potential hit singles.

1999 saw ex-Marillion singer Fish release his Raingods With Zippos set following some protracted legal battles with former labels. Enlisting producer Elliot Ness, Fish also chose to inject some new blood and worked with several new musicians which gives the album a re-energized feel. As always, the writing is literate and expressive, concerning itself with matters of the spirit and the heart. Tumbledown" leads the album off in fine style. What begins as a lovely piano ballad, suddenly becomes a stomping rock track with soaring guitar work from newcomer Steve Wilson. Raingods with Zippos is often hailed as one of Fish’s greatest solo achievements along with his 1990 debut Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors. It is the first of three Fish albums to be produced by Elliot Ness (not including the best of collection Kettle of Fish from 1998, with which Ness was involved). While he was not involved with the production of this album, Steven Wilson, most famous for his work with Porcupine.

Raingods with Zippos is arguably Fish's true crowning achievement, and is criminally underrated in a world that unfortunately wouldn't dare listen to an album like this, for all its diversity and incredibly good sound. As with every other Fish release, the lyrical content and themes here are very heartfelt and create various moods that may conflict with each other, but thankfully contribute to making this particular album the masterpiece it is. On the ever-changing opener 'Tumbledown', Fish's voice sounds as powerful as ever when singing Raingods with Zippos, a tin.

Raingods with Zippos seemingly completes the descent: "Tumbledown" has a vague infectiousness, but the light arrangement seems rather silly. Raingod's Dancing" has some impressive power in Fish's vocals, but doesn't go anywhere once you sit up and take notice. Most of the album is either unremarkable, or (as with "Faith Healer") feels disastrously heavy-handed. At this point, it seems clear that Fish's strength was to take the churning miasma of musical talent in Marillion and forge it into an album of coherent melodies with clever lyrics
