This review is from: Marbles (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.
