Product Description

Product Description

2CD SET – DELUXE DIGIPACK EDITION OF THE 2004 ALBUM ‘ONE OF THEIR VERY BEST RECORDS’ * * * * CLASSIC ROCK Marillion formed in 1979 and have sold over 15 million albums worldwide. Rightly regarded as legends of progressive rock, the band have also continued to evolve and have been keen to embrace the possibilities of the internet, using innovative ways to interact with listeners resulting in an incredibly loyal legion of fans around the world. Marbles was originally released on the band’s own Racket Records label and attracted a lot of attention when it was released as the album had been funded by donations from fans who had pre-ordered the album before they started recording in return for having their name printed within the album artwork (over 18,000 names). The exposure that the band got for this (at the time unheard of) approach helped propel You’re Gone, the first single from the album, into the top 10 of the UK charts while second single, Don’t Hurt Yourself, also charted at #16. This new 2CD Madfish edition of the album is packed in a deluxe 36 page digibook re-worked by original designer Carl Glover. The book features unseen pictures not used in the original artwork. The tracks on the second disc have previously only been available through the band’s own website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underated Master piece 27 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What can I say. I used to be a huge fan of Marillion around the time ofSeasons End, Holidays in Eden and Brave. All three albums I thought weregreat records. I never thought they could surpass the greatness of Brave. They never seemed to catch the mainstream and I really can't understandwhy, and it didn't seem fair. Yet the whole campaign of Marbles andYou're Gone has proved that it's about the fans not the record companiesand entering the top 10 with the single You're Gone. I received my deluxe2 CD copy yesterday - and been looking forward it for ages. I have beenlistening to it none stop, and each play it gets better and better. To methere are some stand out tracks Fantastic Place, Don't Hurt Your Self andthe truly brilliant Neverland. Yet on another listen another track willstand out more. This is the beauty of this album; it's an album you haveto listen to from start to finish to really appreciate how good it reallyis. It's very rare for a group to produce an album that can be listenedto from start to finish without skipping the odd track. The likes of NMEand Q will probably slag this album off because there not from New York ornot the next big thing, but this album is worthy of five stars and standsup there with the great records we have had in the last few years.
Isaid they would never surpass Brave..........well they have with Marbles - anamazing record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Floydian ferturn to top form 21 April 2004
Format:Audio CD
Starting with the epic and brooding Invisible Man this album gives no quarter. The band unlease the 12 minute epic using their trademark time changes on a track which has to be heard several times to get it. No one could accuse Marillion of 'selling out'! The rest of the album is a top notch mix of up beat emotional pop like the single You're Gone and Don't Hurt Yourself contrasting with the sublime Fantastic Place, surely the crown jewel in this sparkeling package. Other highlights (and we are talking 'stand out' in a sea of stand out tracks, includes Angelina and the closer, another 12 minutes epic, Neverland. Interspersed are the four Marbles tracks, very remenicent of Pink Floyd!
The only thing missing from this is the 18 minute cinematic master piece, Ocean Cloud. If you want this one you will have to buy the special 2 disk version from Marillion themselves!
This has to be the best CD from the boys since 1994's Brave, and I think that it will be remembered longer as this CD only gets better with each listen. If you buy into Marillion today, you will still be putting this one on in 5 years time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Marillion's best 16 May 2004
By "paulias" VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I have followed Marillion for a long time but this is the most beautiful piece of work they have made. All the stuff through the Hogarth-era reaches maturity on Marbles. The Invisible Man is an amazing track but it does take a few listens to get it. You're Gone has some gorgeous Steve Rothery guitar e-bowing all over the place. Angelina is sublime. Don't Hurt Yourself is a wonderful upbeat track. Fantastic Place is an amazing emotional trip. Drilling Holes is really cool with some adrenalin guitar all over it and great echoey vocals. Neverland is a really powerful way to end the album. The 4 Marbles tracks are great little vignettes that show that Steve Hogarth was always a few sticks short of a bundle. He is a visionary genius with a fantastic voice and Marbles is Marillion's crowning achievement, although The Only Unforgivable Thing, Genie and Ocean Cloud make buying the 2CD version essential as these songs are simply glorious and cannot be missed out on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely outstanding. 15 Jan 2007
By lerusty
Format:Audio CD
This is almost undoubtedly their best ever album, and that is saying something. The fact that they managed to defy all of the critics over the years to release album after album (this is their thirteenth studio album)of quality rock and superb musicianship testifies that there are a few of us who are prepared to stay with a band who ignore trends in order to develop and grow musically and to produce music which challenges and uplifts. I was one of the many fans who stumped up quite a lot of money to receive the special 2 CD version only available from their website and you really need to get this 2CD version to get the feel of the work. The incredible 'Ocean Cloud' is not on the single CD version (well at 18 minutes long, would it be?) and nor is the wonderful 'The Only Unforgiveable Thing' (does it sound a bit like Coldplay at the beginning?).

If you could classify their albums as 'more rocky' and 'less rocky', then this one would be one of their less rocky. There are many stand-out tracks, with superb, spine-tingling guitar work from Rothery which harks back many years to around 'Afraid Of Sunlight' (1995) and previously, notably the very lengthy 'Neverland', brilliantly produced by Dave Meegan, the subtley unlifting 'Fantastic Place', and the massive 'The Invisible Man'with its twists, turns and, in true Marillion fashion, changes in tempo. I think that my only minor reservation would be that, whilst their 'long' songs are not over-long, some of their shorter stuff is. 'You're Gone' and 'Don't Hurt Yourself' (both released in edited forms as hit singles!) do slightly outstay their welcome for me. However, if you want to discover one of the best-kept secrets in rock, you ought to try this. If you abandonned Marillion after Fish's departure, or soon after, this is a good place to catch up with them again.
