Marillion had been a steady recording machine throughout the 90s when then they uncharacteristically took 3 year break after 2001’s’Anoraknophobia’ before returning with another monumental achievement in ‘Marbles’ in 2004, an album that remains one of the favorites among their loyal fan base. Not a concept album, the band would experiment during the writing process, resulting in some of the most memorable material to date. The album would be released as a single disc with a double-disc available for fans that pre-ordered it.
The album features a lot of fan favorites including the epic “The Invisible Man” and “Neverland.”
More on the album can be found in the book Essential Modern Progressive Rock Albums.
