Ok I'll admit it Marion are one of my favourite bands of all time. I first saw the band support Morrisey and I've flown the flag for them ever since sadly the autumn 2016 tour is now cancelled. So you have the Limited LP with the single sided single (violent men). You have the CD. Why buy this for the 3rd time like I have. Whilst other acts took the majority of column inches in the mid 90s Marion were somewhat lower profile. However they have always put on a great show and by rights they should have been enormous
The deluxe re-issue has for once a really nice booklet instead of the usual cobbled together none item. It has the extra tracks you won't have if you didn't buy all the singles. And on disc 3 you get the BBC radio sessions all of which I missed. Memories of driving through Southampton in my Ex's Nissan with knackered speakers playing this come flooding back.

One of the underated classics of the Britpop era.

I honestly believe this to be one of the best albums of all time. There isn't a bad track on it and most are truly exceptional. I'm only sorry that there is one glaring omission from both of the special releases – Sorry-Go-Round, which I downloaded from somewhere as a gloriously rough and energetic thrash-through from a rehearsal, but which I find to be one of the most enjoyable songs of theirs I've heard. I suppose most people finding themselves on this page knew exactly what they were looking for, but for anyone who landed here by chance, take a risk and buy this album. You will be kicking yourself for having missed it for all these years.

If you haven't got this album in your collection, what have you been spending your money on? The first and best of two (alas!) great albums by the Macclesfield band has immortality written all over it. The singles Sleep and Time are highlights, but never do you feel that the music is substandard. Buy this, then buy The Program when you're hooked.

I first saw Marion on a Britpop tribute programme on the BBC along with other greats as sleeper, pulp, blur, supergrass. The only thing was they weren't britpop, brilliant none the less but come to the fore at the wrong time. Like other great bands such as Diamond Head, shed 7 they were harshly overlooked sleep, fallen through are brilliant musical masterpieces. It was a surprise to me that amazon actually had any reference to Marion, hopefully the program won't be the last we hear of them.

There is one thing Marion always did. They recorded the way they wanted to and in doing so released some wonderful records. This debut album still sounds vital in 2010 as it did upon release in the mid 90's.

Their sound moved on after this release and by the early 2000's like many of the British bands to emerge from the Britpop era they broke up and went on to other projects.

This World And Body won't be everyones cup of tea however if you liked Menswear, Cast and Suede then you will want to hear this fine record.

This album is indicative of what was on the side of the whole Britpop craze in the mid-nineties. Marion managed to distance themselves from the more commercially-sounding music around at the time (Sleeper, Echobelly, Blur, Supergrass....) by writing music with a real raw edge. Music that sounds as good now as it did years ago. Definately recommended.
