A Great Album; A Great Band
Torman Grant | Utah, USA | 01/30/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Like most Marillion albums, I think Brave is amazing. Marillion is one of just a handful of bands putting out decent new music these days. I realize that Brave came out in the early nineties, but what band has emerged since then that has put out anything even remotely comparable to Brave? I can think of only one band, and that band is Radiohead. Radiohead is like the Beatles for the new generation and Marillion is like The Who or The Rolling Stones. They are every bit as good as Radiohead, but they won't ever get credit for what they have achieved. I absolutely love Radiohead, but I am equally fond of Marillion. Marillion is the most underrated band of all time. When are people going to recognize the genius of the Hogarth fronted Marillion? Hogarth's lyrics are amazing. Brave is a great example of his genius. Every Marillion album is brilliant, regardless of whether the singer is Fish or Hogarth. The awesome musicianship is consistant throughout the band's existense. It is truly a travesty that this band is not recognized as one of the truly great musical phenomenas in rock history."

"I have since changed that opinion. Like many of the other reviewers here, I was not impressed with this album upon first listen because there isn't that big bang song which instantly catches your attention. So if you are doing anything else except listening to this album, you will pass right over most of these songs. You need to be firmly seated with all attention on this album to fully appreciate it. However, attentive listening is rewarded with a rich tapestry of song and story. It tells the story of the complete neurosis of modern living (Living the Big Lie) and how we are just supposed, "to get used to it." This starts the tale of an abused runaway (Runaway), who is dragged back to her abusers as she it told to just "get used to it." This is not a happy album and it is not particularly musical in places, but that is the best part of this album. To me, it seems as though it was not written as music, it was written to tell a story which just happens to be told through song rather than paint, film, or some other media. Everything about this album, the raging guitar, the slow piano, the near a cappella passages, was done to tell the story and what a story it has to tell - this, more than anything, is why this is a 5 star album."
