5 stars Marbles is my favorite album and probably always will be so this review is probably quite biased! I discovered Marbles about 3 years ago while systematically listening to all of H era Marillion. At the time Marlbes didn't really grab me as much as Brave and This Strange Engine, but with repeated listening Marbles just seems to get better and better! There is so much going on in this album, lots of little things and unique sounds that I notice every time I listen to the album, literally every time I hear this album something else jumps out at me. The atmosphere created in Marbles is just incredible, I really can't put my finger on what makes it so good, it just flows from one song to the other so perfectly despite the fact that lots of the songs in Marbles are very different, ranging from the epic Neverland (album highlight along with the Invisible man) to the short and calming 'Marbles' songs. Overall I would recommend this album to pretty much anyone who likes music with emotion! There is a awesome mix of long and epic prog songs and upbeat single type songs such as 'Don't Hurt Yourself' and 'You're Gone' on this album and I think most people would find something to love. Absolutely no hesitation in giving this album the full five stars. Epic album.
