Internal Exile ("A Collection of a Boy's Own Stories") was Fish's second solo album after leaving Marillion in 1988. The album, released 28 October 1991, was inspired by the singer's past, his own personal problems and his troubled experiences with his previous record label EMI. The album's music reflects Fish's indulgence in the vast regions of music that he wanted to explore as a solo artist; most notably Celtic music and folk styles.
True, Internal Exile relies a bit too much on contemporary studio techniques, resulting in a clean, almost sterile sound, but it's appropriate for such precise, mannered music. At times, it's a little too mannered, but much of the album delivers exactly what Fish and Marillion fans need - and what old-school Genesis fans have been waiting to hear.

Internal Exile was the first Fish album I got - I missed Vigil In A Wilderness Of Mirrors and only got it years later. Personally, I like this album more than "Vigil". As others have mentioned, the playing on the album is very strong and while not quite being the guys from Marillion - they are very good. Song Highlights include: Shadowplay, Credo, Just Good Friends, Lucky and Internal Exile.
