5 stars What can I possibly add to the long and good reviews already written about Marillion's BRAVE ?

Not much, as we already know that this is a pretty dark concept album about a girl who wants to commit suicide by jumping from the Severn Bridge between England and Wales. The story explains everything that had happened to this girl to make her commit this horrible act of self-destruction. Therefore I will limit myself by explaining how I got to love this album.

Of course, when "BRAVE" was issued I had already heard some Marillion tracks, but mainly from the Fish era. "BRAVE" was lent to me by a friend who knew I also liked various kinds of rock music. I certainly did not expect to be so pleasantly surprised! Before this album I did not really know Marillion and because of this album I got interested in them. Both in the "Fish Marillion" as in the "Steve Hogarth Marillion". I still think "BRAVE" is Marillion's (SH's era) best effort till date, with "AFRAID OF SUNLIGHT" and "MARBLES" followed closely after it.

Conclusion: if you like Neo Progressive and don't own this album yet go buy it! If you don't particularly like Neo Progressive, but you have any interest in music at all at least give it a chance!

Excellent album! 4.5 stars
