4 stars Marillion - Marbles On The Road

This is a fine DVD from MARILLION's live performance of their 2004 studio album MARBLES. Besides tracks from MARBLES we are also treated by tracks from their 1994 concept album BRAVE and some from their 1995 studio album AFRAID OF SUNLIGHT.

I completely like the track list from the double DVD version, but why did MARILLION also decide to issue a pour derative from it on a single disc version? I think this is complete miss hit from them! You almost have to buy their albums/ DVD's on because if you don't you will actually miss out on some great music!

First I found myself with only half of the album as I purchased MARBLES ON THE ROAD in the local music store as I wasn't aware there was also a double DVD version in circulation. They also did the same thing with the their studio album of MARBLES. If you were not aware there also was a double DVD version of it, you actually miss half of the show! If you only got the pour single disc format you will actually miss out on some highlights of the show like tracks "Afraid of Sunlight", "The Great Escape", "King" and "Easter". Those tracks are maybe even better than some tracks on "disc one" and a must have!

Well, so far about my frustration with the record companies. I could recommend anyone to buy MARBLES ON THE ROAD as it truly is an excellent addition to any prog music collection (just make sure it is the double disc version!)

4,5 stars for the double disc version 3,5 for the "el cheapo" version
