3 stars Marillion - Unplugged at the Walls

The idea behind this acoustic live set was that in exchange for free meals the band would perform a few low-key acoustic concerts at a local British restaurant. As word spread out it gradually became a global event with various nationalities present.

The songs presented here are total reconstructions of the original songs (at least mostly). The band started from scratch per song, which is also the most unique aspect of this live disc. I personally am not that fond of live releases, mainly because they quite often tend to include the same ol' songs over and over again, but this release is a nice exception. For instance there are several songs which originally were really up-tempo but now they've transformed them into low-key slow versions, which is quite amusing and original.

Overall perhaps not an essential release, but certainly an interesting disc. Unfortunately this album is only available directly from the band's website (, which kinda rules out the non-die hard fan to purchase it.. unless he or she reads an interesting review about it or accidentally stumbles across the website.
