From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars Marillions music seems to have slowly diminished to the point that hogarth`s now whispering through the majority of tracks & the overal sound`s comparible to those annoying aromathearopy/hippy tapes of dolphins & whales mating.Call it ignorance on my part,failure to recognize artistic integrity,creative genius, originality and...... chinese bell sounds which seem to jangle on endlessly... whatever, it`s all above me.I`m just a rock fan. This albums Okay but they seem to have lost their originality/identity somewhere along the way, more importantly,their `omph` factor. I honestly never thought I`d say this but since around Holidays in Eden,they`re just pedalling the same tedious crud. I feel sorry for older fans who raised funds for their latest 98minute epic compilation of `sleep enducing torture`.I think it`s fair enough when a band take a different musical direction but they shouldnt really coast on previous success or cover old songs.They proclaim they`re no longer a prog band, then they do, then they dont.Not that anyone really cares about catagorization but I wish they`d make up their minds & stick to some formula that`s A LITTLE MORE EXCITING!! Better still, change their name completely so that twits like me dont go out buying their stuff,hoping for a little regression back to the neo prog days.

Have a suggestion for a new name: RadioBread?
