2 stars Progressive rock is at least 40 years old, therefore in 21st century it's normal that many "prog" bands try to find new ways to create their "prog music". The way chosen by Marillion is a sort of modern brit-pop with new-age and fusion influences: prog doesn't exist. For more in "Marbles": - There's no technique in playing, and drums are only in 4/4 - Almost all songs are "four chords" structured - The singing is often just a melodramatic lament, and sometimes, for me, out of tune - Melodies are not memorable This is, IMHO, a bad and boring album, regardless of the musical genre to which it belongs, and I think that Coldplay and Oasis are more "progressive" than Marillion of "Marbles"
