5 stars Without any doubt BRAVE is considered the best album by MARILLION fans in the era Hogarth, yet AFRAID OF SUNLIGHT is considered by the band as one of the best works they have ever worked on, and after you listening to it you discover why. The opening GAZPACHO is an invitation to what you might expect from the album, full of contrasts, a carnival of sounds which is followed by the mini tribute to the Beach Boys called CANNIBAL SURF BABE. From this point and to the end it is a revolution of sounds, and beautiful lyrics. BEAUTIFUL contains one of the most "beautiful" messages of life. AFRAID OF SUNRISE is a good introduction to the album, and of course to the powerful and melancholic AFRAID OF SUNLIGHT which happens two songs later, passing first through OUT OF THIS WORLD, dedicated to Donald Campbell, who died in an accident after trying to break the speed record in water. Then, you are about to listen one of the best songs of MARILLION ever, my all time favorite AFRAID OF SUNLIGHT. Finally, BEYOND YOU and KING give the adequate outro to the album. Highly recommended!
