I'm pitching Marillion against IQ again.  Two classic concept albums.  Very tough choice for me, but for once I will have to go with Marillion, for The Great Escape if nothing else...

Not a big fan of either band, but in this case, Brave takes my vote. One of the albums I really enjoy from Marillion.

Brave is easily a top 5 concept album with Sub not sure making my top 10 for concepts, its a good album but Brave is great.

Hello fellow Essexboy!

I'm also more of an IQ fan, although I do love Marillion too.  IQ way more consistent, across their whole catalogue for me, Marillion have some albums that are, er, less good....

Definitely Subterranea, one of my fave neo-prog albums ever.

Both are not favorites for me by those bands...but I suppose IQ with Subterranea.....if only for some balance and perverse humor.

I love both bands and Brave is a superb album, but Subterranea is the third best concept album of all time (no prizes for guessing the best, but it has no vocals and is about a bird, and the second best is about an ancient Irish myth).

A TVR is not a car. It's a way of life.

Brave has some great moments, but overall I still think Subterranea is a a better album in its entirety. IQ on this one, but not by much.

Both are wonderful records, but Brave was definitely a more important release.

Hogarth led Marillion is one of the few bands that literally makes me want to vomit
Fish led Marillion is one of my favorite bands of all time and so is IQ
Subterranea is one of the best neo-prog albums ever so i think you get my drift :)
