Fantastic Star", according to Marc Almond himself, could have been called "Faded star"- such was the singer's state by the time it saw the light. It took something like 3 years to finish and, in the meantime, Marc underwent drug rehab. Apparently, the final version of the album looks very little like its original idea. I do like the album and some of its song are definitely among Marc's best ever. However, I can't forget when I first heard it my impression of it being over-produced and somehow "lacking something"
