Marillion - Neverland

OK, tonight I'm listening to Marbles as I write this. And it's cranked!

Had a hard time getting into Fish-era Marillion (not sure why, there are bits that I like, just couldn't get emotionally attached. Kind of like my attempts at dating, I guess).

I kind of steered clear for a long time, and then I gave Marbles a listen. And holy crap, what an album! To me, this double album is right up there with Lamb from Genesis, The Wall (you-know-who), or Close To The Edge. Like a lot of good classical music, there are ongoing musical themes that reappear throughout the album, tying the whole thing together.

Neverland is the closing piece, and a blockbuster ending to a blockbuster album. I can't resist turning it up to 11!

1. Neverland is a magical song

One of my favorite songs of all time. I’ve been a Marillion fan for almost 40 years now. Never saw them with Fish, but almost every LA area show since H took over Can’t wait for the new album in a couple weeks!

2. Damn, I didn't know they were getting a new album together.

Though I shouldn't be that surprised. They're still going strong. I just ordered Sounds That Can't Be Made this morning.
Thanks for the heads-up. I'll have to get this on order.

3. FEAR is really good too

Extremely political commentary on Brexit, Trump, corporate media, etc.
“Gaza” on Sounds That can’t Be Made is powerful too.

Sorry - they’ve been my favorite band since my freshman year in college. I get kind of obsessive.
