"Marillion have been a long time favorite band of mine - so this review will be biased. This album is good for those who want to sample some of Marillion's best tunes. If you like rich, challenging melodies contrasted against a backdrop of variations then this album is worth buying. If you like this - try "Misplaced Childhood", "Brave" and the latest release "Radiation" . "This Strange Engine", "Seasons End" and "Fugazzi" are all 4 star efforts. If you like Marillion, other suggested listening: - Simple Minds ("Real Life", Sparkle in the rain") - Yes ("Fragile", "Close to the Edge") - Styx ("Paradise Theater") - Peter Gabriel ("So") - Genisis (earlier material) - Alan Parsons ("Tales of Mystery and Imagination", "Eye in the sky", "Stereotomy")"
Contains Good Songwriting And Musicianship.

"I just recently bought this greatest hit's package and can say that I'm quite impressed. Strange enough, through the years I don't ever remember hearing any of these songs. I'd always heard of Marillion and the singer named Fish, but that was as far as it went. There's no doubt that these guys are very talented musicians. They're in the same vein as bands like Genesis and Alan Parson's Project. I really can't distinguish between the two different singers on this album, but the singing (whoever is singing) is all pretty good. Of all the songs, "Dry Land" would have to be my favorite--it's just one of the best songs I've heard in a long time--very well played and moving. I like the fact that Marillion infuses a nice progressive touch to a lot of the tunes on here--listenable but also challenging. The guitar and keyboard playing is also exceptional. Other good songs are "Kayleigh," "Assassing," and "Easter." This is a good introduction to this talented band and I'll probably get somemore of their stuff. I'm glad I bought this--give it a listen, it's a cut above the rest and is not disappointing."
