Prog Reviewer
3 stars Brief Encounter is aptly named - it's an EP churned out by EMI in a bid to introduce Marillion to the US market, where they'd be supporting Rush on the Power Windows tour. It collects the two major non-album B-sides from the Misplaced Childhood era (Lady Nina and Freaks) with a clutch of live tracks from the Hammersmith Odeon concerts in January 1986. It's a pleasant enough listen, but those B-sides are hardly essential and more satisfying live albums from Marillion are readily available. These days, the easiest way to get Brief Encounter is as a bonus disc on recent CD reissues of Real to Reel, and I'd call that about right.
