    Actually, it's soon to be fondled by someone else, as it has already been claimed.

    I received my copy today. What a great value - absolutely beautiful. I'll frame with signed poster, like I did for Brave.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    IMO...
    - more dynamics in the mix in both the orchestration and the audio levels
    - new 2019 remix no longer sounds scooped to me, not that the original mix was bad, this may be the mastering and not the EQ used during mixdown of the original mix???

    When I open it I'll let you know. With Friends From the Orchestra has really been grabbing my attention of late. Rothery just flat out amazes me.

    I can do that with Misplaced and Clutching as I needed to have all of the signatories.

    Got it today.
    Initial response is that the back speakers are not utilized as much as they could have been.
    But overall the 5.1 is a good mix, just that there could have been a little more creativity in the panning.
    The stereo mix should be really good ...

    This full live set from Rotterdam is outstanding. What a setlist too!

    I can tell you from experience (as I was at this gig) that it did not sound like that in the hall. Ahoy is imfamous for being a pretty shitty sounding arena (although the Amsterdam Arena is even worse). This was also one last really big arena type shows Marillion has ever done, shortly after this tour the band got 'dropped' by EMI and a slow process of reinvention was about to begin. It would take them quite a few years to find themselves again because for quite a while it looked like the band would slowly wither away. Not so much creatively (as I do like the albums that came out in this period i.e. This Strange Engine, Interior Lulu and Radiation) but it was a period of very uneven live shows. I believe it all started to turn around when they totally took affairs into their own hands including management that they found their live mojo back.

    I don't doubt it. The soundboard is a magical thing!

    I am not a big fan of the three albums that follow AOS (btw, I think you mean "marillion.com" and "Interior Lulu"). I liked much of "Anoraknophobia" (despite the album cover) and loved "Marbles." Since then, I haven't been gripped by any of their albums, though I like a lot of Disc 2 of "Happiness is the Road." I feel a lot of the last two albums has been overly long, melancholy droning (that's an exaggeration, of course, but nothing has stood out for me). I have zero interest in the orchestral album.

    I got this for my birthday from my dad and the two of us put the remix on his nice speakers.

    The album stopped me in my tracks at several points. The "And now we stand here you and I, either side of the edge..." section of "Out of this World" is about 5 times as powerful as I recall. I was so taken with this section my wife asked me "what's wrong?" as she caught my thousand-yard stare.

    What an incredible record. Probably my favorite of theirs. Only Marbles gets close.

    Fish era Marillion was one of the first prog bands I got into, but Fish doesn't speak to me on nearly the same level anymore. The Hogarth era has lyrics that are simpler but just as strong.

    Their slower stuff can get mumbly, but that doesn't bother me. A lot of indie I enjoy does that on every other song, and there are no complaints there. To me, modern Marillion began with Brave--a blend of Talk Talk, Jeff Buckley, and prog. Everything before that seems like excellent juvenelia.

    Ditto! Big time. But I'd pick Brave for number one!

    Very well said and I completely agree on all points.
