Brave.  It edges Seasons End.  Marbles is too patchy.

So I bring Brave back to parity with MarblesTongue

WOW. I just listened to that whole album(meditated to it actually) and it was fantastic! Really great all the way through the last song. Man I'm glad I found this one.

But I'm a Fish-only snob, does that mean this poll is not for me?

No, I'm KIDDING everyone. But I do have their first 4 studio albums, so I guess it's time to try something with the other guy now. So I actually appreciate this poll.. I'll give Marbles a try and see if I like it. Smile

Actually my two favourite H - Marillion albums are This Strange Engine and Happiness Is The Road, but I'm happy to endorse Marbles on the above list. Seasons End and Brave have flat spots for me and I've never liked the first two tracks on Afraid Of Sunlight.

I think Brave is more cohesive album, but I went with Marbles. All I really need from that album are Invisible Man, Neverland, and Ocean Cloud, but considering the combined time of those 3 songs adds up to the length of a traditional vinyl album (and it would be one of my all time favorite albums ever if it only contained those 3 songs), that's the one I voted for.

Marbles is my favorite Marillion album by a large margin.

For me to listen to Season's End now is to listen to an album by a band that really aren't sure what direction to go in with their new man.
Brave is a great album but perhaps  a little too overblown. Marbles has some great songs but is  patchy.
Afraid of Sunlight is just perfect.
It has a sense of humour with Cannibal Surf Babe, a great climax with Out of This World and as for King, well that is how to end an album

I'm surprised AOS isn't running away with this.
It is one of the most perfect albums ever made by anyone. EVER

finally I see some love for Holidays in Eden. Clap
 


I gave it some love in my initial post. WinkLOL I can do without  the title track and "No One Can" but otherwise that is a classic Marillion album, IMO.

If you do not have the Somewhere In London dvd, it is a must-have, and begins with a stunning version of "Splintering Heart".


I have the Somewhere in London dvd, it's great!
What's wrong with those two songs (Holidays in Eden and No One Can)?

(sorry for bumping this thread, but it's a good one Big smile)

Season's End the best, Brave close second, I'd add Holidays in Eden and Radiation.

Don't like Marbles at all. Afraid of Sunlight is pretty weak record.

Marbles.

When he rides, my fears subside.
For darkness turns once more to light.
Through the skies, his white horse flies.
To find a land beyond the night.
