How We Live died as a band after this one album and it’s easy to see why it did not hit the mark as it falls between two stools – not pop enough to be truly pop and not rock enough to appeal to the rock audience.

Is Dry Land the best album by How We Live? BestEverAlbums. com brings together thousands of 'greatest ever album' charts and calculates an overall ranking.
How We Live was formed in 1985 by vocalist and keyboard player Steve Hogarth and guitarist Colin Woore in 1985. Both musicians had previously been in the new wave band The Europeans. Signing to the CBS imprint Portrait Records, Dry Land was the band's sole album. Issued in 1987, the album was a fine collection of melodic and imaginative rock music that, despite featuring some excellent songs, somehow failed to make any commercial headway.

Unfortunately Dry Land was a dead end for How We Live – it stalled outside the top 40, and, although there were some big gigs including a Munich show on the same bill as Eurythmics and Tina Turner in front of 100,000 people, they called it a day in late 1987. Hogarth was enquiring about becoming a milkman when he heard from his publisher that Marillion had been in touch. He was back in business, and remains so to this day – their politically-charged new album . R (F Everybody And Run) is out on 23rd September. But Dry Land is a fascinating and worthwhile precursor
Marillion performing live in 1986. Their third and commercially most successful studio album was Misplaced Childhood, which had a more mainstream sound. The lead single from the album, "Kayleigh", received major promotion by EMI and gained heavy rotation on BBC Radio 1 and Independent Local Radio stations as well as television appearances, bringing the band to the attention of a much wider audience. Hogarth's second album with the band, Holidays in Eden, was the first he wrote in partnership with the band, and includes the song "Dry Land" which Hogarth had written and recorded in a previous project with the band How We Live.
