4.0 out of 5 stars Great album but why only 1 disc???, 25 Oct. 2005
This review is from: MARILLION / MARBLES LIVE (Audio CD)
This is more or less the soundtrack to the the Marbles On The Road DVD recorded at London's Astoria Club in 2004, where they performed the entire 1 disc version of the Marbles album with the excellent track Estonia thrown in for good measure. The performance from H and co. is as always excellent but it would have been so much better if we had a double cd which included the rest of the show (including the between song banter which has been edited out here!), as people who were there would know this is only about half of it. But listening to this still reminds me of a cold, windy night in Newport queing to see my favourite band for the first time! Marbles is one of Marillion's all time great albums and is right up there with Afraid of Sunlight, Brave and Anoraknophobia in its genius. I don't really know who this release is aimed at, anyone who has the 1 disc version of Marbles would be more or less buying the same album again, the avid Marillion fan would already have the dvd. Perhaps its for the the type of Marillion fan who just buys anything with their name on the front cover. (ie me!!). Don't be put off though - this is a band at the top of their game performing one of their best albums live.
