Superb Prog Rock Album,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Passion (CD+DVD) (Audio CD)
I bought Passion back to back with Pure and to say I've been playing both CD's virtually non-stop since pretty much sums up how much I've fallen for the Pendragon sound. Passion is different again to its predecessor with a bit more experimentation but should appeal to any fan of the prog rock genre. This is what Marillion for the 2000's should have sounded like, rather than the dreadful direction the band has been pulled in. Favourite track? Well probably the album closer "Your Black Heart" which is one of the finest melodic rock songs I have ever heard, followed by "Empathy" which is reminiscent of The Mission in places. However everything else is really just as good - the band have experimented a bit on this album and you get elements of metal, techno, rap and even a bit of yodelling thrown in. The latter provides a bit of comic relief but the other styles seamlessly blend to give a solid rock album with infinite replay value.
