2 stars Best sounds to feel!

After following this band for several years and having passed through a diversity of emotions towards them, nowadays I can say I love their both sides, you know, their Fish-era and their Hogarth-era, and though lyrically and musically they are truly different (two Marillions, actually), I think the essence has prevailed. I was one of the people who did not like H's era first, I denied Marillion several years ago, but later I found their beauty with careful and soulful listens. Now I am aware of my love for them.

Well, that introduction leads to this compilation album entitled "Best Sounds", which features some of the most successful Marillion songs (commercially speaking) and some of the most emotional, disarming and easy-to-sing tunes. I don't think this is intended to be an introductory album, though the name of "best sounds" is not accurate to my ears, because I think they have released much better material than most of the songs featured here.

But well, if you want to enjoy over 70 minutes of emotional, tasty and heartfelt songs this is a nice stop, with songs such as "Kayleigh", "Neverland", "Cover My Eyes", "Beautiful" or "Easter", among others. If you are aiming to know or enjoy the proggiest side of Marillion and the best songs, this is not an option.

Enjoy it!
