3 stars "Brave" but unadventurous

A double live CD from the Hogarth era Marillion, recorded around the time of the "Brave" album. Indeed, a live version of that album occupies one entire disc.

Not being a great fan of the "Brave" album anyway, the inclusion of the entire album again, in almost replica format, is somewhat lost on me. Fortunately, the first disc has a more diverse cross section of tracks from the Hogarth era. Two tracks, rather predictably the singles "Kayleigh" and "Lavender", also appear from the Fish era. Hogarth sounds a bit, dare I say awkward, singing them, but the extension of "Lavender" into "Blue angel" from "Bitter suite" makes that track worthwhile.

Marillion are not generally what might be described as adventurous in their live performances, sticking by and large to the Script. If anything, the tracks here sound slightly weaker than their studio counterparts. "Afraid of sunlight" for example doesn't seem to have the power of the album from whence it comes.

"Made again" may be a good memento of the tour for those who attended one of the gigs, but for those who were not there, and already have the studio albums, there's not a great deal to commend this album, it's certainly be no means essential.
