Der_Lex: Trust me, it takes some getting used to, but the Hogarth stuff is actually better than anything Marillion did in their Fish days. Especially Brave, Afraid of Sunlight and Marbles are gems well worth picking up.

Loved Brave. But you must admit, they lost all their early-Genesis flavour when Fish left. After Afraid of Sunlight, they got kinda boring to me. Hogarth's voice really grates on my nerves after a while (though Fish's voice was not exactly pleasant to the ears). Marillion was for years my very favourite band, I even hitchhiked for 8 hours to go see them play. Got to meet 'em, too. They shared their crackers and cheese.

Love love love that song. I would like to do a cover of it someday, but it would be quite a challenge.

Skwidd: Was he being chased by Major Minor and Private Public?

/obscure?


Was he missing and presumed delicious?
Or was he headed home to Iowa to become Radar's little brother?

(late return to the thread, but it's been a busy day)

I agree that Marillion lost their 'early Genesis' flavour when Fish left. I'm fine with that... there's already a band with a wonderful 'early genesis' sound, and that's early Genesis. I like Marillion for the fact that they do have their own sound, which they seem to redefine slightly with each album.

I do understand the transition from Fish Marillion to H Marillion was hard for a lot of first hour fans to make, though. As a slightly younger prog fan, I didn't have to make that transition...I discovered Marillion when Brave came out, and picked up and loved both the old and the new albums.

Downside of that is that I've never gotten to see the Fish Marillion play live. I've seen Fish perform Childhood's End, but that's not really the same (I think it's kind of a statement to Fish's lack of creativity that he's mostly touring around playing songs from his Marillion days these days. Then again, his only solo album that I like is Raingods with Zippos, his other stuff ranges from rather bland to just downright dull).

On the other hand, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend my first ever Marillion weekend this year. Three days of Marillion fans taking over a resort in Holland, having fun, and seeing the band perform live each night. It doesn't get much better than that, really.

On a closing note to an ramble that's been going on for too long already... As far as good 'neo-prog' bands go, I strongly agree on IQ (Subterranea is an amazing album), and I'd like to add the relatively little-known Norwegian band Gazpacho. They have a slightly more modern sound, resembling Radiohead at times, and the singer takes getting used to, but they're well worth checking out.

Bufu: Troll much?

Whether you like Genesis or not, there's no denying that there was some serious musical ability there, all the way around.


I'm a troll because I don't like some crappy art-rock band?

Genesis is one of those bands that I really should get into some more. Maybe I'll go buy a best of compilation or something...
