Loving This Strange Engine (track)...Never really had as much of a connection with the Hogarth era as I do Fish but I think somethings about to change....just WOW!  :o ;D

And bleeds and bleeds
And dies for you
And lies
And is to blame
And is ashamed
And is not the same
And is true


This Strange Engine (album) is among my Hogarth favorites along with Seasons End and Marbles.

Take out Hope For The Future and TSE is a really good album. But unfortunately, it's there, so it gets pulled down quite a bit. The title track is one of my favourite Marillion songs, though. h goes full throttle on there, which is always good.
... And you ask me: "Where's my hairspray?"

Yeah Hogarth should really start to blast it more, I can't enough! Even though I do love a lot of the softer songs.

I really like h's voice, but I get the feeling that he's been overdoing it with the falsetto on the last few releases, especially on the "Essence" part of HITR. I really enjoyed his singing on Anoraknophobia and Marbles, though.

I REALLY hope Fish brings this stateside in 2011.

I think it's been almost 25 years since he attempted this nugget of fruity goodness.

But that's exactly what happens at a Fish/Marillion concert.

That's part of the attraction (at least it is for me provided everyone is not completely flat).

Being part of a moment like that is hard to desribe unless you've been there.



On the other side of the coin is this.... where you get the patented Hogarth faux pout routine... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHl4M2D6YUE

I recently came across a DVD of Fish, and he performs Misplaced Childhood in its entirety.  Its not quite La Gazza Ladra, but its awesome!!

Ytserush is right.  I saw him do Sugarmice in SF many moons ago, and you couldn't even hear him, but the solidarity of the fans plus the emotional impact of the song on me brought tears to my eyes.

There's nothing like it. There are very few bands where I have experienced that.

If that's the 20th Anniversary Return To Childhood DVD, you might enjoy that one more than I do.  It's not bad, but I've listened to the studio and a multitude of live versions from 1985-1988 and it just kills me sometimes to hear Fish do it with his band.

I don't usually get caught up in the nostalgia of the moment, but in this case I do. I have yet to hear a reinterptration of "Misplaced Childhood" that even comes close to the original performances

What's worse is the Fools Company DVD from Holland in 2002. I cry for a different reason when I put that on. Fish's solo work is the reason to have that DVD, but I really have to cringe when I hear Misplaced Childhood on this DVD. I think even Fish admits that this version is below standard due to not having enough time to rehearse it. But as I said, Fish's solo material is very redeeming in this case.

Just a head's up, in about 5-6 weeks time, I will begin a Marillion Survivor over in the Polls/Survivors forum here!

It'll be a HUGE undertaking, so I'm hoping I get plenty of frequent voters each round/album. I've plowed through Spock's Beard/Neal Morse Solo Survivors over the last year with anywhere from 3-12 voters each round/album, but I'm hoping to get a higher average than that with Marillion!

Some preliminary information: I'll do each of the band's 16 Studio Albums in order first, but for the two double-albums, Marbles and Happiness Is The Road, I plan on using 4 Finalists (instead of the normal Top 2), and using the 5th and 6th Place songs from Marbles to go into Consolation, and the 3rd Place of each Volume of HITR for Consolation (each Volume's Top 2 will move to Finals).
After that, I'll do two B-Sides Survivors; One for the Fish-Era, and one for the H-Era. From then on, it should just be Finals.

Anyways, I also wanted to bump this to say just how MUCH I loooooove Marbles, and I rank it as one of my Top 3 Marillion albums (if not number one), and definitely one of my Top 10 albums of all time. And anyone who has only heard the Single Disc version of the album is REALLY missing out on the treat that is the Double Disc version!

-Marc.
ATTENTION - I am currently taking a hiatus from running any Survivors at the moment,
 but feel free to check out others' that are running in the Polls/Survivors Forum!!! Maybe in the coming months, I'll start up again with a different band if there is interest...

Yay, I am very excited about this survivor. And I also think Marbles is their best album--I love it so much I even named my cat Marbles.

Marbles is my second favourite Marillion album, two of the songs on it are in my top 4 Marillion songs. It could be my favourite if it wasn't for The Damage. What an awful song.

The Damage is one of the highlights of the album together with Ocean Cloud and The Invisible Man for me especially the Genie reprise part at 3:03 - 3:33 it's so much awesome

Sorry, it just pales in comparison to genius songs like The Invisible Man, Neverland, The Only Unforgivable Thing, Ocean Cloud, You're Gone and Don't Hurt Yourself imo. Seems like I'm alone with this, though.

As for Fugazi, I quite like it. Fish's vocals are horribly over-dramatic at times, though.

Fugazi has it's moments, but it's always been my least favorite Fish-era record, and it's not even close.

Yeah, I would agree that Fugazi is the weakest of the Fish albums, but it's still quite good. In fact, I think it has the greatest song from the Fish era: Incubus.

Fugazi is my favorite Fish album if you don't count Misplaced Childhood and Clutching At Straws. I love it, especially when those songs are performed live.

I'm sure I like a few Hogarth-era albums more but the longer I think about it I'm not really sure. Up there with Seasons End, This Strange Engine and Marbles for sure and probably better than the rest.

Well if you liked that song, definitely check out the rest of their debut album, and the other 3 Fish-era albums. You can't really go wrong with either of them, and if you like them enough, you'll eventually get all four. Be sure to get the 2-disc remaster versions though, as the bonus discs contain some b-sides and other cool tracks!

Clutching at Straws and Misplaced Childhood are the best, but as long as you start in the Fish-era you'll be doing great.

Yeah, Script is a good song.  Get Misplaced Childhood and Clutching at Straws (I was never a fan of the debut album apart from the title track).  If you like those enough get the first two as well.  After that, listen to Marbles and prepare for a completely different (better) band.

Since this thread has made its way back up to the top page, I figured now would be a good time to notify all you fellow Marillion fans that I will begin a Marillion Survivor next month, sometime in the first week of March.

http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=20558.0

Check out this thread for more information in the coming weeks, and stay tuned to the P/S forum for the Survivor to begin, starting with Script For A Jester's Tear!
