4 stars Although Brave is Marillion's tour-de-force, Afraid of Sunlight has some of its most fabulous compositions and arrangements, and some of Hogarth's best vocal work. Gazpacho opens the album in grand style, moving quickly into the Beach-Boys-on-acid Cannibal Surf Babe. Beautiful is just that: one of the most moving ballads in prog-rock, and an easy match for any of Genesis' ballads. Both versions of Afraid of Sunrise are haunting, with the rockier one being slightly better. In all senses, this is one of Marillion's best overall, and a must-have for prog-rock fans.
