Review by Warthur
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars For the Saturday performance on the 2009 Marillion Weekend, the band came up with a reverse-chronology show concept, with the songs broadly being performed from newest to oldest. Thus, Tumbling Down the Years begins with material from Happiness Is the Road and ends with a track from Script For a Jester's Tear, visiting more or less all the Steve Hogarth albums (plus a quick stopover at Clutching At Straws) along the way.

It's an interesting approach and certainly is an interesting way of showcasing the band's musical development, though there are a few choices that seem odd. The biggest gripe I have with it is that if the band had trimmed a song or two from the albums that get more attention they could have squeezed in a song each from Misplaced Childhood and Fugazi. Then again, I can sort of see why they didn't do that - of all the Fish-era albums, Fugazi seems to be the one Steve Hogarth has been the least comfortable with tackling, and at the end of the day this is a very, very minor gripe with what is otherwise a pretty entertaining set.

Note that the Saturday set from Live In Montreal then that's a different performance of essentially the same album concept (since there were multiple Marillion weekends that year). Unlike the Friday Seasons End performances, there are actually mild differences in the set lists between the two releases: Tumbling Down the Years does not have Fantastic Place, Afraid of Sunlight, or The Great Escape, but instead has performances of Drilling Holes, An Accidental Man, Alone Again In the Lap of Luxury and Hard as Love. If you don't own either live album but are interested you would be best off choosing based on which of those songs you want in the set more; if you already have the Saturday Live In Montreal set, then you may or may not also want this one depending on just how much of a completist you feel.

3 stars OK, hands up......I'm not the world's biggest Marillion fan. I was into them in the Marquee days before they'd released anything other than a cassette, I adored (and still do) Script, saw them in Hammersmith on the Fugazi tour, and then.......well, just kinda lost touch. Heard Marbles last yea ... (read more)
