5 stars Brave is an album that I've come to love over time. My first experience with Marillion after Fish's departure, this album was certainly quite an experience when I first got it, but it took several listens and quite a bit of time to actually sink itself in.

A concept album, Brave has a brilliant cohesiveness to it; however, that's not to say that the songwriting is not diverse or interesting. While some may find the album to be somewhat boring and directionless, I've come to appreciate nearly every song on here, and some of them are simply breathtaking and beautiful. Highlights, to me, are the songs Runaway, Alone Again in the Lap of Luxury, the beautiful title track, and The Great Escape. The rest of the album holds its weight as well, though.

Brave is a beautiful album and a great addition to Marillion's discography.
