Think it's a good idea to start with Afraid Of Sunlight, it and Brave are my favourite Marillion albums. Brave can be a lot to take in at once though. If you want different then try Radiation, probably their most unpopular album at the time of release, heavily influenced by Britpop, but a lot of people (including me) have reassessed it and now think it's a great album. My top 5 are -

I love the sound on the Radiation remix but I'm not a big fan of some of the edits, it's taken out a lot of what made R10 a bit quirky and so on for me......

Musically it's great, lyrically / story wise I keep thinking of a bunch of high school students doing their own version of We Will Rock You - will persevere with it though.

I'm the other way, I still love the Fish albums, they're basically the soundtrack of my youth, but I prefer the stuff they've done with H. And H married me so what else can I say ? :-)

The only full band show he's doing AFAIK is the Melkweg in Amsterdam on the 26th March. Saw Anneke on Sunday night doing an intimate acoustic gig about 5 minutes walk from my front door - was fantastic :-)

Rip everything in lossless format to a NAS drive so I can stream it around the house, for mobile I usually just grab my iPod, mostly listen to the radio in the car at the moment. Also have a Sonos system in the living room that I use with the aforementioned NAS, Spotify and Google Play (got a 6 month trial with the Sonos)

To say I'm *not* a Yes fan (with the exception of Drama, 90125 and Fly From Here) would be a bit of an understatement. Have heard some of Jon Davison's stuff with Glass Hammer and it's pretty good, have a few friends who are seeing Yes this week on the Cruise To The Edge thing, will report back if I hear anything :-)

Does nothing for me either, I love the Xzibit track but that's about it. Am actually giving it another go at the moment ! To be fair though, I don't think it's by any means a bad album, the fact that I can't get into it is probably more to do with my expectations and my changing tastes. I've been a fan since I saw them at La Scala in London so it may just be familiarity breeding contempt.

Add Revolution to the list, which seems not so much to have jumped the shark for season 2 as flown over it at 10,000 feet in a private jet.....

One of my mates went to see Motorhead in Glasgow in the early 90's. After the gig he went back to the car (old Vauxhall Cavalier) - it didn't seem to start so he tried again and the popped the bonnet to check. The engine was running but he couldn't hear it ;-)

Seeing FM at the Aberdeen Capitol in the 80's. Quite a big venue but there couldn't have been more than 50 people in the audience, they came on, played as if they were in front of 2000 people and it was a great gig. However, during the last song, someone decided it would be a good idea to stage dive, so he jumped up onstage, and then back into the stalls. Except he sailed over the heads
