5 stars After listening to ANORAKNOPHOBIA I became concerned about the direction my beloved Marillion was heading. RADIATION and MARILLION.COM were complete flops in my opinion. Both had a few nuggets to get you excited but I felt THIS STRANGE ENGINE was the last "complete" album the band had released.

Naturally, I was worried about the double CD curse doing them in on MARBLES. With what they were putting out prior, there was no way they could put enough good material together and make a success of it. I was happily rebuffed when I pulled the shrink wrap off and popped that 1st disc into the player Right away I knew that Hogarth had righted the ship. The MARBLES installments are comic relief so to speak. The meat of disc 1 the other tracks. Starting with INVISIBLE MAN right on through to the melodic and powerful OCEAN CLOUD.

Disc 2 contains MARBLES lll and lV plus the hypnotic YOU'RE GONE , DON'T HURT YOURSELF and the sonic masterpiece NEVERLAND.

This is the best Marillion album in a very long time and was definately worth the wait. Got a chance to see them perform the entire set at the House Of Blues in Hollywood. Unbelievable...
