Prog Reviewer
3 stars A brief live album with tracks drawn from the Fugazi tour - split more or less evenly between Fugazi-era material in the first half and Script-era stuff in the second - Marillion's Real to Reel is entertaining but doesn't quite capture the live Marillion experience quite as well. Part of this might be due to the songs being sourced from two separate shows, and it's certainly exacerbated that aside from a small amount of patter at the start of Forgotten Sons almost all of Fish's banter between songs is excised. When so many high-quality live releases offer complete Fish-era shows - Recital of the Script, Live at Loreley, Early Stages and Curtain Call - Real to Reel is at best a taster, something to nibble at to see if live Fish-period material is your thing.
