2 stars Well it's quite a while away I listened to a Marillion album, a band I used to like when I was in my 20's. After Fish left the band they failed somehow to hit my attraction. So this one is their latest output and I'm now listening to it 3rd or 4th time but still can't get fascinated. The first track "The invisible man" reminds me pretty much to Radiohead in some way. Second one which is the first one of the "Marbles"-series is rather boring I've to say and the third one "You're gone" is a nice pop song and so on. The whole album is a nice pop rock one IMHO to listen once or twice but nothing special and actually I can't quite follow why it's rated so high even in the category of NeoProg. Only interesting for die-hard Marillion fans or maybe for those of Radiohead. For me worth for 2 stars!

P.S. The edition I reviewed is NOT the limited 2 CD's one listed here!
