Product Description

DELUXE DIGIBOOK EDITION OF THE 2007 ALBUM 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. Someone Else was Marillion’s fourteenth album and was originally released in 2007. Following on from the success of the previous album Marbles, which spawned two hit singles, Somewhere Else gave the band their first UK top 30 album in ten years. The album was a critical as well as a commercial success with Uncut stating: "Some tracks chime and soar like Coldplay. Others are just a post-rock whimper away from Radiohead... Marillion deserve a fair hearing." This new 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. --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

I am an old school Marillion fan and dropped out soon after Fish left quite some time ago because I really did not like Hogarth's voice and the direction all this was taking. But recently Marillion came in my small home town on their 2007 tour and I thought "what the hell let's go see them". And I was shocked into amazement: the band still displays outstanding musicianship and cohesion; but Hogarth really surprised me as a good showman, very friendly with the crowd, beautiful vocals.

So yes it is my fault at playing the ostrich all these years but now I discover all the great songs they have been making all this time, and I am rushing to catch up with all I have missed. Including the last album, this contains a lot of great stuff, beautiful melodies and solos, fast and slow, long ans short. Well now that I am reconciled with Hogarth I can say that Marillion has remained a top band with unique chemistry among marvellous musicians, with a catalysing singer.

When I first heard Easter many, many years ago, I rushed out and bought the album, but it didn't do anything for me. And so I left it at that. A while back, I heard Don't Hurt Yourself in the charts and thought it was good, so I went out and bought the single version of the album at HMV (not knowing of course that there was a double version available - in fact, not knowing ANYTHING about Marillion) and took it home and played it. It didn't do much, but I was intrigued as to why they had the double version available so I bought that as well. It still didn't do much for me, but I listened to it on and off for a year, and then I suddenly "got it". It is a magnificent masterpiece, and I was hooked on the band. Spent a fortune on every album I could find, pretty much every single T-shirt, DVD, book, anything out there. There are highs and lows in the band's music, but they reach a part of the soul that no other band has ever done for me. Somewhere Else came along, and I was a bit disappointed. I wanted it to blow my mind first time, but it didn't. But now, as before, I'm beginning to realise that it is also a wonderful album. I think that many of the songs could have been produced better. They groove much better live (have now seen them twice at the Forum - spectacular) than on the album. I still don't think that it is a Marbles or an Afraid of Sunlight, but it might be. It just takes time. Something new every single time you listen to their music, and how many bands can you say that about? At the recent Forum gig, Steve H said that they used to not look forward to the London gigs, the audiences were "cool" (i.e. not very warm). But he said something changed of the last two years or so, and he didn't know what it was. It was Marbles. Thanks guys .

Well how about then forgetting about "comparing" and "evaluating" and let yourself enjoy this "ride" . I am not saying it is their best offering but every Marillion album ( until now ) has proven to be unique and has its own charm ...and "Somewhere Else" has definetely it's place .
Find yourself a good view : on a balcony while the sky is still blue at the end of the day and let it play ...let yourself go away ; somewhere else .

Following in the wake of epic concept albums Anoraknophobia and Marbles, this album sees Marillion distilling its trademark sounds into a compact ten-track format with mixed but, overall, pleasing results. Honestly, we've become so accustomed to the band delivering sublime music with a regularity nothing short of prolific, anything less than absolutely superb is considered a tad disappointing. Aside from 2 tracks, "Most Toys" and "Last Century for Man", I loved it. True, it needs more than one listen to get you hooked, but that`s their great secret. My favourites are the opener "Other Half", which culminates in a lovely Steve Rothery guitar solo, and the stripped-down "No such thing". I thought the vocals sounded a bit like Led Zep's "No Quarter", but you might disagree. Had it been possible, I would probably have given this album a 4.2 rather than a straight 4. There are few dead certainities in life, but one of them is: there's no such thing as a bad Marillion album!

The Music Industry's best kept secret are back with their best album in over 10 years. An album which threatens to catapult them back into the public consciousness. It's an album with many highlights - the rousing opener - The Other Half is a real feelgood uptempo number "but I'm rushing downwards into blue sky"... You'll be singing along after a couple of listens. The langourous groove of See it like a baby will draw you in slowly but keep you hooked for a long time.

Third track.. Thank you, Whoever You Are is one of the strongest choruses to come out of Aylesbury for a long time. A future single? A future Top 10 hit.

Phew... three singalong anthems. Time for a little breather with the jump up and down madness of Most Toys. A forgettable little rocker but perfect in it's context on the album.

Somewhere Else is destined to be the fan's favourite - the most prog-like track with it's other worldly voices - sophisticated structure and dynamic shifts.

Slow builder "A Voice from the Past" is followed by the chill-out No Such thing (a close relation to Talk Show Host - Radiohead).

So far so good. But in case you are getting too comfortable. Marillion pull out a couple of absolute belters. The forlorn "The Wound" and the biting "Last Century for Man". Just as you are gasping for breath - the Beatlesque "Faith" leads you to the end of a magical journey

The production is magical. Whereas previous albums have felt claustrophobic. This album really breathes. It has a feeling of summer, of air, of wide open spaces. Hogarth's voice sounds back to it's best after the slightly nasally whispering approach of Marbles.
