Holidays in Eden is definitely a good entry point for Marillion for melodic rock fans, it deliberately scaled back the prog elements and saw them delivering an excellent set of mostly pop/rock songs, the first single 'Cover My Eyes' should have been a smash, but, like the other singles (No One Can and Dry Land) only made the bottom of the UK top 40. I'm a huge Marillion fan, and this is my 1st

You're not alone, Bleed and Scream is far and away my favourite Eclipse album.

Am heartened by the number of these stories that mention how well/long bands played for in these circumstances, seems it really is all about the music for a good number of them!

I assume Billy Sherwood is continuing in Asia on a semi-permanent basis then? If they are to continue past this year (and I'm really not sure that they should) I'd rather have John Payne return, but don't suppose that's very likely.

I'm all over the palce when it comes to the Dan - Countdown is my favourite Dan album by quite a distance, but I'm not typical in that my other faves are 'Can't Buy a Thrill' and 'The Royal Scam' and I find most of the revered 'Pretzel Logic' to be unlistenable. 'Katy Lied' was better but still not a fave (despite the near-constant presence of Jeff Porcaro on that one, and the odd guestie from Pa

Nah, Forgotten trail is better, has 98% of what's on VBO and plenty more, including some GREAT previously unreleased ('Believe Me' is a belter and WAYYYYY better than the version recorded by the Souther-Hillman-Furay band) and/or rare stuff (Their non-album single 'My Kind of Love' for example, another real gem!) - it's basically essential for newbies and die-hards alike.

Love both Legend and Legacy, but also a fan of their earlier albums, especially From the Inside and Cantamos, but probably my favourite song of theirs is Tim Schmit's 'I Can See Everything' from the Good feelin' to Know album. Curious folk (especially Eagles fans) should invest in 'The Forgotten trail' compilation, which does an excellent job of covering their 69-74 period (first 8 albums).

I love a huge number of bands/artists, but obsession-level is reserved solely for my top 3: Marillion, Magnum and Toto.

Great show indeed, really enjoyed Romeo's Daughter as well, so will definitely be checking them out more. I hadn't actually realised that the sows had been rescheduled already, so thanks to sbate and co for the thread earlier in the week, would have missed this without you guys!!

Love every track on The Magnificent album, but this has always been my favourite. Was aware they wrote it, but didn't realise it was a cover (if that makes sense). Just listening to Brother Firetribe's version now and it's great as well, will have to check them out!

Great band, and one of the top 3 AOR bands of all time in my book (Toto and Journey being the other 2) - there's not much between the first seven really, but Reach is WAYYYYYYYYYY down the list: 1. Vital Signs 2. Eye of the Tiger 3. Too Hot to Sleep 4. When Seconds Count 5. Premonition 6. Caught in the Game 7. Survivor 8. Reach

'Now' was a great album, I'm not a fan of the much-overused phrase 'return to form' but it's applicable in this case.

America used to (and possibly still do) regularly joke on stage about their veteran status by declaring they weren't an oldies band, they were classic rock...and adding 'No, we don't know what the difference is either'. Kind of summed it up nicely, though ironically they're not a band I'd call classic rock!

Still haven't had a chance to spin this, have been too busy with the new Marillion album (which is looking like being their first UK top 5 album since 1987 no less - and deservedly so!) but really looking forward to it.

Can't afford many gigs these days (4 of the below have been presents from the other half), but this year I've made up for it with quality over quantity: The Winery Dogs (with Inglorious as support) Avantasia Magnum Colin Blunstone Gordon Lightfoot (bucket list item for me) Blue Oyster Cult Billy Joel Only Europe/Dare, Foy Vance and Marillion to come, though hoping to add Tyketto and m

He does have some great tracks, but sadly rarely more than 2-3 per album and the rest is awful. Amongst the ones I love though are Have Mercy on the Criminal, Daniel, Empty Garden, Healing Hands, The One and I'm Still Standing.

By rights I should love these guys but neither album ever really clicked with me, the first one I do rate about half of (the aforementioned 'Hold Back the Night' being my favourite by a distance), but TTB for me has one great tune in 'I'll Be There When It's Over' and 10 other songs I can't remember the first thing about. No, wait, one's a 30 second instrumental, IIRC...I'll get me coat!!

Wow, didn't realise how diverse opinions were on Europe's 'new' output. 'Secret Society' has somehow not found it's way into my colleciton, but I'd rank the others thus: 1. Last Look at Eden 2. War of Kings 3. Start From the Dark 4. Bag of Bones Still lots of good stuff on 'Bones', just not as consistent as the others for me (and possibly only me!).

Didn't know a new album was on the cards and 'Epic' lived up to it's name, so looking forward to this (despite the non-involvement of Mike Slamer this time around) but...where to start with that press release!! Awful and embarrassing doesn't even begin to cover it!

After 6 years of trying I'm still yet to find anything particularly interesting in an English charity shop, but did pick up Rik Emmett's 'Absolutely' album for £1 on a trip to Scotland - the shop also had Tall Stories debut in stock (but didn't need to duplicate that one). My best find when in NZ was probably John Wetton's 'Battle Lines', still one of my favourite albums and I paid next to no
