A revived old poll that I guess I missed first time around....

Marbles is Marillion's finest moment, a stunning double album that deserves all the platitudes it gets.  My vote goes here.

AOS is second best, another stellar album.  Out of This World is my second favourite Marillion song (after Ocean Cloud).

Brave gets third, a fine album which is tainted by poor production, which is a shame.

Season's End is frankly miles behind in fourth.

Marbles

Fairly sure I voted for Seasons End although I didn't leave a comment. I don't really understand the love for Brave. 

My top four Hogarth albums at this time would be
Seasons End
Marbles
Sounds That Can't Be Made
Holidays In Eden

Love all of them, but I gotta vote Marbles, Anoraknophobia is as good as everything listed here, and the new album wasn't half bad either.

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.

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.

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)

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

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
