5.0 out of 5 stars Floydian ferturn to top form, 21 April 2004
This review is from: Marbles (Audio CD)
Starting with the epic and brooding Invisible Man this album gives no quarter. The band unlease the 12 minute epic using their trademark time changes on a track which has to be heard several times to get it. No one could accuse Marillion of 'selling out'! The rest of the album is a top notch mix of up beat emotional pop like the single You're Gone and Don't Hurt Yourself contrasting with the sublime Fantastic Place, surely the crown jewel in this sparkeling package. Other highlights (and we are talking 'stand out' in a sea of stand out tracks, includes Angelina and the closer, another 12 minutes epic, Neverland. Interspersed are the four Marbles tracks, very remenicent of Pink Floyd!
The only thing missing from this is the 18 minute cinematic master piece, Ocean Cloud. If you want this one you will have to buy the special 2 disk version from Marillion themselves!
This has to be the best CD from the boys since 1994's Brave, and I think that it will be remembered longer as this CD only gets better with each listen. If you buy into Marillion today, you will still be putting this one on in 5 years time!

Agreed. Over 5 years later and this album still receives regular spins on MY stereo too.

8 years on and I'm still listening!! Maybe I'm biased with my name being listed in the deluxe edition with the thousands of others who pre-ordered it!
