Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is a decent live performance of Marbles from Marillion, with the track listing mainly matching that of the 1CD version with a couple of tweaks: Drilling Holes has been replaced with The Damage, and Estonia from This Strange Engine makes an appearance as an encore. Overall, it's a really good set, with energetic performances of the songs, though there are a few issues with the set; most particularly, after the spacey drifting of Neverland, playing Estonia as an encore makes the set feel a bit monotonous - what the encore really calls for is one of the band's livelier songs as a counterpoint to what's gone before. On the whole, though, it's a pretty good companion to the studio album, though those particularly fond of Marbles may want to get Marbles By the Sea (a live set of the complete 2CD album) instead.
