4 stars Recorded during the '97 tour of France and Germany, MARILLION have released a real live stunner which I would highly recommend to all fans of Hogarth era MARILLION. This double live CD explores many of their fan favorite tracks and of course emphasizes their "This Strange Engine" album. Highlites for me are "Gazpacho", "Afraid Of Sunlight", "Bell In The Sea", "Sugar Mice" and "This Strange Engine" which are delivered with great power and energy. Both of the CD's run like an actual live show and the different concert excepts work very well actually and are invisible to the listener.

4 stars Capturing the This Strange Engine tour of Europe with songs recorded at dates in France and Germany, Piston Broke does a great job of editing the material together into a convincing concert experience despite the varying gigs represented. Though the recording quality is average but not exceptional, it's a great value for money set with a heavy emphasis on songs from Brave, Afraid of Sunlight, and of course This Strange Engine, so some of the best material of Steve Hogarth's tenure from the band is represented here. Look out for Pete Trewavas' engaging little bass solo before This Strange Engine, and the version of The Bell In the Sea which I think blows the studio version of that particular B-side out of the water.

4 stars Piston Broke is a 2cd recording taken from the Strange Engine tour. The band are on topr form and this sounds just how a live album should - LIVE! A great selection of songs some of which have not been performed very often since! Essential for fans and much better than the Thieving Magpie offic ... (read more)
