5 stars Marbles live is one of those rare live albums that leave you breathless after listening to it. It's more than an album, it's an experience. Of course the original album is delicious but here the delivery is passionate, genuine, and very well played and sung. Steve's vocals are top notch, I have a feeling his voice gets better and better as he gets older, and the sound quality is excellent, much better than Anorak in the UK. Not one of the songs are weak. If you haven't seen them live you are missing something very special and very moving. Neverland is probably their best song ever, and it always gives me goose pimples and brings a tear to my eye, especially when the flying sequence starts (Wendy darling, in the kitchen...). Excellent work from a band that got lost for a while only to reinvent itself as a superior act to Mark I. Yes that's right, it even rivals Fish's era albums, especially the live ones; and I'm starting to like Hogart's voice much more than Fish's, especially nowadays (check out the terrible and embarrassing Mixed Company by Fish!) 5 stars at least.
