I'm going to cast the first vote for 'To the Bone', as I expect it to be the one with the least votes.

Marillion's Brave is one of my favorite albums, so there goes my vote.

The Bells.....The Bells! I'm backing a hunch that Tubular Bells will win this poll easily. Smile

to meet anyone nose at nose
the walls have hearsay
he go to four feet
take the moon with the teeth
he has a good beak
the stone as roll not heap up not foam

SW can do no wrong according to me. To The Bone is good. Tubular Bells and Brave are both overrated

There has been a lot of fuss about the story being brilliant and the instrumentation being top notch, but I donít think the story is that good and the music is quite boring to me. Production feels a bit too compressed

nobody makes a fuss about Hogarth era Marillion. LOL
I've seen some people complain about the story being too dark or album being depressing Confused

I'm not saying they're invalid just that I disagree. I bought Brave when it came out and I still love it today. 
It's that good for me. Smile

Brave is Marillion's finest hour. Or two.

Tubular Bells could get my vote if it was only for side 1. I always found side 2 weak while the opposite side is so great.

Brave is the winner here .

Tubular Bells is my favorite, but honestly I don't love any of these records and I never reach for them so for the first time in my history on the site, i'm voting none of these.
