4 stars With deep conviction and an innocent introspective feel, MARILLION's double CD release "Marbles" will keep you rolling along. "Marbles" is a slow and sombre album full of gorgeous deep tones, carefully crafted melodies and songs and that special MARILLION flare. As a big MARILLION fan, Marbles sounds very different yet again and is another excellent piece of work from start to finish. There is a lot of great keyboard work and guitar accents throughout the album with deep bass tones. This double CD album pretty well stays on the softer side of MARILLION... not unlike tracks like "Afraid of Sunshine", "Cathedral Walls", House, When I meet God etc... Overall "Marbles" is a very fine album and although many will feel perhaps MARILLION's new direction is a bit too quaint, I dig it and I am into it.
