2 stars Unfortunately i have to agree with the previous review, especially about Marillion's decline since 1995 and Afraid Of Sunlight. It is good to import new elements of music to your sound, refresh it in some way, but in Marillion case it is more of a mutation than a refresh. Rush accepted many elements of the new wave movement at the early 80's and they had excellent results-but Rush kept the basic body of their music untouched which was the secret of their success. Marillion really lost their way and seem more like an alternative rock group than a progressive rock one they used to be! Marbles seems to be just an afterglow, an oasis within their last 14 years of released albums and of course it is quite far from their real magnum opus Brave. Anyway, Somewhere Else is exactly as its title implies...Marillion are somewhere else, far away from the roots of their progressive rock music... These seem-like opera glasses of the album cover really demonstrates the distance between Marillion's past to present...i am sure Steve Rothery needs them to watch the jester dancing in a an old garden party celebrating the season's end...
