4 stars Amazing!!Incredible!!These guys surprised me again. To be honest i was hoping something good but not as good as this one. I was a bit tired of the previous irregular albums,with good songs but with no continuity in the full album;in my opinion MARILLION is a band more oriented to conceptual albums. But i have to admit that this album is the best work since that 10 years ago "Brave". The production is perfect,all very well played,voice too,a greatt work. In my opinion cd 1 of the 2cd version is better than second one,this last more ambiental. The selection of the order in the track list is fantastic,with the little"Marbles" passages between songs.The only song i donīt like in the album is the excesive commercial single "Youīre Gone" and the betters(for mention only a few) "Genie","Ocean Cloud","Donīt Hurt Yourself".... Iīm also a bit disappointed with the idea of release only the 2cd version through internet,because in my opinion you have to be a bit stupid if you buy single version,is like buy a half cd,if you want to buy a car,will you buy a car without wheels,for example...????In my opinion if the album is good and have a good promotion(like this case) the FULL album should be avaliable to buy on the shops.If you want to be grateful with the fans that help in promotion,you can do it in several ways,like a special price on the album,a free shirt,stickers...or you have different fans?(the "2cd fans" or the "1cd fans"),think this is not the good way.MARILLION is what they are for the fans (with no exception)!!!.
