If you haven't got this album in your collection, what have you been spending your money on? The first and best of two (alas!) great albums by the Macclesfield band has immortality written all over it. The singles Sleep and Time are highlights, but never do you feel that the music is substandard. Buy this, then buy The Program when you're hooked.

There is one thing Marion always did. They recorded the way they wanted to and in doing so released some wonderful records. This debut album still sounds vital in 2010 as it did upon release in the mid 90's.

Their sound moved on after this release and by the early 2000's like many of the British bands to emerge from the Britpop era they broke up and went on to other projects.

This World And Body won't be everyones cup of tea however if you liked Menswear, Cast and Suede then you will want to hear this fine record.

This album is indicative of what was on the side of the whole Britpop craze in the mid-nineties. Marion managed to distance themselves from the more commercially-sounding music around at the time (Sleeper, Echobelly, Blur, Supergrass....) by writing music with a real raw edge. Music that sounds as good now as it did years ago. Definately recommended.

I first saw Marion on a Britpop tribute programme on the BBC along with other greats as sleeper, pulp, blur, supergrass. The only thing was they weren't britpop, brilliant none the less but come to the fore at the wrong time. Like other great bands such as Diamond Head, shed 7 they were harshly overlooked sleep, fallen through are brilliant musical masterpieces. It was a surprise to me that amazon actually had any reference to Marion, hopefully the program won't be the last we hear of them.

This album is still fresh, gutsy and alive. It's such a shame that the band was so short lived. This ought to be re released and get the attention it always deserved.
If you like Muse, you'll love this too. Buy it now!

One of the underated classics of the Britpop era.
