5 stars The word that describes this album is "enchanting". All of the members in the band are surrendering themselves to their music in this disc, and the result is Marillion's (H's era) most brilliant work to date. A certain mood is developed throughout the whole of the album; this gives the listener a continuous feeling that can be felt even after the disc is finished. The little marbles that can be found throughout the disc are one of the best musical ideas I've heard in a long time! These, if put together, forming Marbles 1, 2, 3, and 4 played continually, can feel a little simple and not convey the message that the band wanted them to convey in the first place...but, when played in their respective places throughout the disc, they are great and carry a non-forgotten theme lyrically and musically! I won't talk about each song...some are better than others as is the case in most albums, but they are all standard and above standard songs; no bad songs on here.

Go buy this now! Buy the double disc edition if available (Ocean Cloud is worth the extra money, trust me).

Tasartir | 5/5 |
