Marillion is just plain horrible without Fish. Their albums have sucked FIRST CLASS after This Strange Engine. Hogarth needs to GO AWAY!! He has single handed ruined the band......

I am at a loss to explain the comments left by you all. When Fish left Marillion I too thought it would be the end of the band. However, I feel that both Fish and Marillion have benefitted from the seperation. Fish has produced some excellent music albeit not enough. Marillion have gone from strength to strength (with the exception of the lackluster Radiation) and produce music of consistently high quality. Steve Hogarth changed the dynamic of the group but only helped to strengthen their musical developement. How can anyone listen to or Anoraknophobia and say they suck? And lets not forget that Brave is one of the best concept albums ever made and far superior to Misplaced Childhood.
I listen to all the hogarth albums on a regular basis (even Radiation) but only listen to Clutching at Straws from then fish era. I can't wait for the new CD to be released and I hope that the radio stations will play some of the new material. The fact that Radiohead and Coldplay get airplay whilst Anoraknophobia was ignored is a mystery. I also blame MTV and VH1 for not giving the recent videos airplay and raising the profile of this excellent band and getting them back into the public awareness.

marillion, with fish, was a big part of my life. i had just graduated from high school when i first heard misplaced childhood and i quickly bought everything they had available, when fish left and i bought seasons end i was very disappointed and now only listen to the "fish" era. but i still have posters from some of their albums that i have cherished for 17 years. my hats off to all you other fans. with or without fish.

I love a lot of Marillion with Steve Hogarth at the mike. Marillion developed musically under Fish and by the time of their final album with Fish (Clutching at Straws) they had developed a unique sound (due in no small part to guitarist Steve Rothery) and his crystal riffs. This unique sound is present on Hogarth albums such as Seasons End, Brave and Afraid of Sunlight, all excellent albums and well worth checking out.

For anyone who is interested still, EMI are going to re-release 'Live at Lorley' and 'Recital of the Script' on DVD this month (July). 'Script' will also include the Grendel video EP as an extra! Also, the band have reached an agreement with Fish to release some old concerts on CD as part of the 'Front Row Club'. Go to for more information.

I thought it was 'From Stoke Row to Ipanema' that was being re-released on DVD not 'Live at Lorley' Your right though 'Recital of the Script' is being put onto DVD with extra's.

>>By The Svenster   (Thursday, 10 Jul 2003 13:48)

You are right. The official web site originally said it would be live at Lorley but they were obviously given the wrong info by EMI. From Stoke... however comes with loads of extras including a complete concert!

Once have seen the movie of 'Brave'. A B&W movie about a girl searching to get out of the 'Dark'. An impressive piece of work with music as the storyteller gets you close enough to imagine the pains and suffering this girl must go through. I really LOVE this album 'cause
it's so incredibly real. One piece of advise : do not watch the film before going to a laughterparty !

I love both incarnations of Marillion. I love all the Fish-era music, but equally love the H-era. I listen to all of the side projects band members have. I listen to Fish solo. I am happy with all of it.
