Marillion biography
MARILLION, taking their name from Tolkien's "The Silmarillion", are the well known band that invented the "New Wave of Progressive Rock". Their sound is similar to GENESIS '72 to '82 or thereabouts, with PINK FLOYD and YES influences. The line-up, by this time, comprised Fish (his real name, Derek Dick, was worse; vocals), Mark Kelly (keyboards), Steve Rothery (guitar), Ian Mosley (drums) and Peter Trewavas (bass).

MARILLION - FISH (1982 - 1988)
The music is directed around the poetic and sometimes fantasy lyrics of the lead singer Fish, who sounds very much like Peter Gabriel. The band got their best successes, both artistically, progressively and commercially. "Script For A Jester's Tear" showed influences from many of the great 70's progressive bands. The second studio album "Fugazi" followed in the next year. The third studio album, "Misplaced Chilhood", was a true concept album and placed MARILLION among the greats. MARILLION's fourth album "Clutching At Straws" was to be "old" MARILLION's farewell to the world. The album, dealing with the problems of drug addiction and alcoholism, was the final album to be made with Fish as front man and lyricist. Fish left the band in 1988 to pursue a solo career.

MARILLION - HOGARTH (1989 - today)
Their new sound seems more geared for radio play, although they still have an air of depression in the music. "Season's End" was issued in 1989 with a new singer, a lot less inspired by Peter Gabriel, Steve HOGARTH. Their album "Brave", considered one of the modern masterpieces of progressive rock, is a concept piece about a young girl that contemplates suicide on a bridge. This daring concept album is a spectacular exercise in multi-layered music.

Personnally, I enjoy both styles, although I prefered the old art rock style of Fish. Still, with Hogarth, MARILLION has progressed to a higher level making it one of the top bands from the mid eighties till now...

Script For A Jester's Tear
Marillion Neo-Prog

Review by AndyJ

5 stars Marillion's 'Script For A Jesters Tear' is in my opinion the definitive Marillion album. No matter how good the follow-up Marillion records have been, and there have been some crackers over the years, nothing has ever come close to matching the power and creativity shown on the 'Script'. There isn't a single ounce of fat on this album, every note has its place and every vocal is a lesson in perfection. Plenty of room is given throughout the compositions for lengthy instrumental sections, and the band are in complete harmony in every moment.

The album starts with the title track, 'Script For A Jesters Tear', which might be the best song Marillion have ever written. The naked vocals of Fish in the opening few bars can't help but make you think of Genesis's 'Selling England'. I have always wondered if this was an intention of the band, a sort of homage to their favourite band? But soon the rest of the band join in and this song blossoms into such a powerful piece of music and demonstrates just how amazing Fish is as a vocalist, particularly in the closing moments.

The rest of the album is equally compelling. I don't really want to do a track-by-track review of this album as it's not really my style, but I'll say that every song on this record is brilliant, and I never skip a single minute of this disc when I sit down to listen. It is utterly memorizing music I've never once gotten bored with it.

If I ever get stranded on that desert island this album will DEFINITELY be coming with me! Absolutely 5-stars, perfect progressive music for all tastes!

Misplaced Childhood
Marillion Neo-Prog

Review by AndyJ

3 stars Marillion's 'Misplaced Childhood' is difficult album for me to review. I want to give it more than 3 stars but ultimately it fails to move me in the same way as the first two Marillion records. It just isn't as memorable as either 'Fugazi' or 'Script For A Jesters Tear'. Don't get me wrong, this is still a quality piece of work, but I feel it pales in comparison to the previous efforts from Marillion.

Having said that all the trademark Marillion elements are in place here, from the hauntingly beautiful lyrics and vocals from Fish, the smooth guitar of Steve Rothery including some delicious guitar solos, well placed synths with a real 80's sensibility from Mark Kelly. Its all here, and the compositions and themes are solid. This is by no means a bad record, far from it. I certainly understand all of the plaudits that 'Misplaced Childhood' receives, but for me 'Script' is simply a superior Marillion recording to this one in every way.

What this album does well, however, is blend the 1970's style progressive rock that has influenced Marillion so much with the romantic synth-laden pop music of the 1980's. As a gateway for fans of 80's pop music I could see this working well to draw people into progressive music. I guess my biggest criticism of this record is that I just don't feel as moved by it as I do with the 'Script' and it doesn't feel as ground-breaking.

Ultimately this is a good album, but I'd recommend 'Script For A Jesters Tear' over this one for anyone new to the band. I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could, but I'd prefer to round down rather than round up for this one!

Review by memowakeman
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

2 stars Best sounds to feel!

After following this band for several years and having passed through a diversity of emotions towards them, nowadays I can say I love their both sides, you know, their Fish-era and their Hogarth-era, and though lyrically and musically they are truly different (two Marillions, actually), I think the essence has prevailed. I was one of the people who did not like H's era first, I denied Marillion several years ago, but later I found their beauty with careful and soulful listens. Now I am aware of my love for them.

Well, that introduction leads to this compilation album entitled "Best Sounds", which features some of the most successful Marillion songs (commercially speaking) and some of the most emotional, disarming and easy-to-sing tunes. I don't think this is intended to be an introductory album, though the name of "best sounds" is not accurate to my ears, because I think they have released much better material than most of the songs featured here.

But well, if you want to enjoy over 70 minutes of emotional, tasty and heartfelt songs this is a nice stop, with songs such as "Kayleigh", "Neverland", "Cover My Eyes", "Beautiful" or "Easter", among others. If you are aiming to know or enjoy the proggiest side of Marillion and the best songs, this is not an option.

Enjoy it!

Seasons End

Review by steelyhead

3 stars I remember that I rushed to purchase this CD the moment It went out. And I clearly remember that after a good five - six spinnings on my CD player I hated the guts of It.

I haven't listened to this in a long time but I found the CD and I have played a couple of times and I was very surprised. This is half nice. Easter is a good song and I'll keep It on rotation on my iPod.

This is not a masterpiece (see Brave for that) but Hogarth and company were good at this point of life. If You can get It don't hesitate to listen to It.

Marillion Neo-Prog

Review by jmeadow

2 stars I am/was a huge fan of Fish-era Marillion and Brave was the first post-Fish Marillian purchase I made shortly after its release. Although I quite enjoy a lot of Hogarth-era Marillion, despite some twenty years of trying I've never managed to get into this album. For me 'Runaway' is the stand-out track, with the brooding Rothery guitar motif capturing the melancholy desperation of the album's central character coupled with the best Hogarth vocal/lyric of the album. Other songs have their moments, but on the whole this is an album that fails to grip. The album has a kind of 'play for today' feel as cliches about troubled kids are trotted out one by one. Check out Bowie's 'Because You're Young' for how these themes can be tackled with real depth and nuance.

Script For A Jester's Tear
Marillion Neo-Prog

Review by Anglophile

4 stars This was the first neo-prog I had ever heard . It was back in 1983 and I first thought this was some ill timed early Genesis rip-off. But after listening to it over and over with sort of a perverse guilty pleasure fascination, it grew one me. At the time nobody was supposed to like this sort of stuff as the post-punk style fascists had declared this kind of music unacceptable. Well screw those long gone idiots; this is a time piece that still stand up. I give this four stars and I also disagree with all of those who savagely maligned Mick Pointer's drumming. On the album itself it sounds fine to my ears.

Script For A Jester's Tear
Marillion Neo-Prog

Review by Losimba

4 stars Another victim of time and listening in too often, I guess. I got Script For A Jester's Tear on vinyl in 1990 or 1991, when I still had no CD player of my own, and I immediately loved the whole album. If I felt there was a slightly weaker song then, I guess it was He Knows You Know, but I absolutely adored Chelsea Monday, Forgotten Sons and especially the title song.

So here I am once more in the playground of the broken hearts. Boah!! What a start of an album. And then this final part, this monster of a guitar solo over this innocent line "Can you still say you love me?", not to forget all those little word games in the slow section. No wonder I named one of my best private cocktail creations after this song. But unfortunately there is what I call the rhythm part in between. For more than 20 years I didn't mind it, Script For A Jester's Tear was firmly one of my Top 5 songs. But now that I've heard it what feels like ten thousand times, it feels repetitive and a wee bit boring so I've been trying to avoid the song for quite some time now. But it's certainly not as bad as The Great Gig In The Sky, I still love the first two and the last three and a half minutes of Script. Unfortunately it is impossible to cut out the part I don't like so much, so I will have to keep avoiding it or get over the dislike (probably the latter).

However, nothing has changed about the five other songs on the album. They are still among the best Neo-Prog has ever delivered. My personal ranking and rating of them has always remained the same. The issue about the title track reduces the overall rating from perfect 5.0 stars down to 4.4, though I wouldn't swear on my life and magic that this will never change again. So it is 4 stars for now.

Live From Cadogan Hall
Marillion Neo-Prog

Review by SteveG

4 stars Chemical reactions.

No one knows what causes a performer to come alive in a concert setting. This is part of the magical process that occurs during some live shows and it is in full evidence on this wonderful two CD offering from Eagle Records.

Live From Cadogan Hall is a live presentation of the More Is Less album. But where that album comes out dull and sterile, there is a complete reversal here. And it all comes down to Steve Hogarth's emotive interaction with the audience and his own stellar emotive singing. And I mean emotive with an upper case E.

Disc 1 is the complete More is Less album performed in the same track order, but with some greatly appreciated descriptions of the songs and the stories behind some of them. Go starts the concert with the same mesmerizing tone that kicks off the Marillion.com album and Steve Rothery's acoustic guitar solo is sublime, as Hogarth just gets his voice and sincerity warmed for the following song Interior Lulu, which is more enchanting and seductive than both the original version and the acoustic make over on More Is Less.

By the time we get to track 5, the More Is Less version of The Space, Hogarth is in full command of the audience and the rest of the band are firing on all eight cylinders, which is needed to make this completely different arrangement of this song work. It does, beautifully.

Disc 1 concludes with band favorites from the Anorakanophobia album , Quartz , If My Heart Were a Ball, and This Is The 21st Century. I personally don't like the material from this album due to it's excess verbiage but fan's of the album should like this make overs.

Before the Anoraknophobia songs, there's a beautifully moving version of it's not your fault song by SteveH wiith his solo piano as backing. It is a heartfelt masterpiece as Hogarth put's his entire heart into it.

Disc 2 starts off with another beautiful solo outer by H, a new reworking of No One Can that far excells from that the poppy studio original, before the band rejoin him for an acoustic reworking of Beautiful from the Afraid Of Sunlight album. One again, Steve H makes theses song's shine as well as reworkings of This Train Is My Life, Estonia and the evergreen Easter.

Disc 2 ends with a full electric version of the Three Minute Boy from Radiation, just to let the audience (and us) know that they can still rock at will.

LFCH is extremely well recorded and mastered, with the sound as clear as a bell. My only complaint is that Rothery's guitar is a little hidden in the mix on two songs, but that's all.

LFCH is a showcase live album for Steve Hogarth in that it shows off his live concert prowess and just how powerfully sensitive his vocals are devoid of the band's thundering electric sound. And, for that fact alone I highly recommend this wonderful double CD. 4 Stars.

Script For A Jester's Tear
Marillion Neo-Prog

Review by Obsidian Pigeon

5 stars Marillion is a band that I've grown more fond of over the years that I've known them. This album, I believe, has only a modest Genesis influence at best, and is quite original. Sure, Fish at times resembles Peter Gabriel, but that's trivial.

The opening title track really sets the stage for what's to come on here. The track goes through several different sections and transitions perfectly from one part to another. However, the other tracks on the album are all very good as well, particularly Chelsea Monday, The Web, and the closer Forgotten Sons.

Of all the tracks on here, He Knows You Know is my least favorite, particularly because of Fish's vocal delivery, but I still do like the progression of the track, and feel like taking it out of the album would not be a wise decision.

This is a fantastic debut, and was a great foundation for the band to build upon on future albums, which grew further away from this sound.

Clutching At Straws
Marillion Neo-Prog

Review by Obsidian Pigeon

4 stars Marillion's final album with Fish, this would be the end of the 'classic' period that many fans seem to cling to. This album is particularly well-written and a very worthy successor to the band's previous album Misplaced Childhood.

Many of the songs on this album revolve around themes of self-loathing and alcoholism. While the music itself is dramatic, the lyrics are very descriptive and evocative, yet are written in such a way that they may resonate in many listeners. The music as well flows brilliantly at times, and songs such as the dramatic White Russian are highlights.

The amount of variety available on this album additionally contributes to its success. While the style remains similar, the songs possess different themes and tempos which keep it from being too samey or too boring, and the whole thing flows wonderfully.

As many of the songs on here are fantastically written with very poignant lyrics and many great melodies, I feel as though this is one of the albums that encapsulates the Fish era very well.
