5.0 out of 5 stars Came across this Marillion song by chance..., 15 Dec 2013

This review is from: Carol of the Bells (MP3 Download)
I'm not a big Marillion fan, however, I must add that this is a fantastic Christmas song! Carol of the Bells is definitely worthy of a top ten singles slot and future inclusion on the "Now Christmas" type compilation albums. It has certainly encouraged a casual buyer like me to further explore the group's back catalogue.

This review is from: Carol of the Bells (MP3 Download)
Perfect Christmas release by Marillion inspired by the fans who badgered them to release what was ( for many ) already a free release but this time for charity.
Classic Christmas tune with a Marillion twist !

5.0 out of 5 stars Carol of the Bells-Marillion, 16 Dec 2013

I have to say that I would love this version of this song even if it was not by Marillion. I am a fan of the band but this song stands out as one of the best Christmas releases in years. If you love Christmas songs then I would heartily recommend Carol of the Bells to you. It will make you feel good, it's for a very good cause and the video will make you laugh. Forget any preconceived ideas that you may have about the band and give it a listen. This song is for everyone at Christmas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Merry Prog-mas!, 17 Dec 2013
This review is from: Carol of the Bells (MP3 Download)
A long awaited Christmas single from the UK's greatest band (my opinion)! A nice rendition of a timeless classic. Great video too. If only radio was the same as it was in the sixties, seventies and eighties - maybe then the general public would get exposure to real music again. Great harmonies, brilliant musicianship and a cheeky sense of humour, all for a good cause.

Got this free with my fan club membership but seeing as they have released it as a single to raise money for charity, worth paying for :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Christmas song, 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Carol of the Bells (MP3 Download)
A classic Christmas song which will appeal to all, heck there is even a nod to James Bond at the end. And it is in support of a charity to help fund cancer treatment for a young man. If you are only going to buy one Christmas song this year, then make this your purchase - you will not be disappointed!!

5.0 out of 5 stars How Christmas Songs should sound, 15 Dec 2013
This review is from: Carol of the Bells (MP3 Download)
This song was released after badgering of the band and management team by the members of Marillion's fan club, who had received it on a free Christmas dvd with their membership. It's released as a charity single, in aid of one of their fans who needs life-saving treatment in America, that in itself shows the measure of this wonderfully approachable band.
The song itself is one that you will recognise from many a Christmas film or advert and is a return to the traditional Christmas releases of many of our childhoods, with charm, humour and a sentimental feel to it. It's choral-style multi-layed vocals and the cheerful campanology of the bells make way to a rip-roaring Steve Rothery trademark solo halfway through which, rocking as it is, only enhances the Christmas spirit of the song.
This is welcome relief from the normal, manufactured Yuletide releases and should appeal to anyone who loves Christmas, whether they're Marillion fans or not.
