Estonia is a tribute to the casualties of an accident with a ferry that happened in Estonia in Closing with Steve Hogarth’s yells and Steve Rothery’s electric guitar chords, this track is the highlight of this album Memory Of Water: But at the same time, in retrospect it also feels like the beginning of Marillion’s extended period of experimenting with what I think of as “divorced dad indie rock”. Transitioning into what is another question, as the following albums released after this seemed to go nowhere.

Track Listings

It took me severe sessions of constant listening to this album to perceive the bright side or whatever. This song being in the style of “Holidays in Eden” the track.

This is an album that never seems to get rated very highly by Marillion fans, but it is one of my personal favorites from the stranve.

MARILLION This Strange Engine reviews

Complete with a built-up marillion this strange engine with a choir included to accompany Hogarth’s great vocal performance. Image Unavailable Image not available for Color: Like everything on the album it is beautifully produced.


My favourite passage is the ending of the song 15 minutes in that is so intense after building up to that moment. I marillion this strange engine blown away by the darkly elegant “Brave” and thought “Afraid of Sunlight” had some decent moments. One Fine Day 5: The exception of course is the last track, the title track, which is a 15 minute attempt at redemption.

And Hope For the Future is just awful, an attempt at some sort of quasi-samba deal which doesn’t work at all. All comments are moderated, so apologies if it doesn’t appear right away! From a slow, acoustic opening, to a rousing end with swirling, powerful, lyrics shouting a choral note.

Again the album is very varied and goes from mild ballads like Estonia, to good Police-alike? The photo on the left is by Andy Smith. I started with the wonderful double disc Marbles but soon discovered a band that’s made terrific music since the 80s.


Marillion – Explanations of Song Elements: This Strange Engine

The rest of the song seems a bit boring and thjs bit contrived marillion this strange engine the same time. The finale to the album is the first 15 minute epic Marillion had ever done.

And, on my scale, ‘7’ is “good”, not “average”. Yes, Fish would brashly declare himself the Market Square Hero, but there was a certain irony to the song, a sense that he was playing a character that he and we alike knew was a bit clueless and full of himself.

Fortunately, progressive it’s not the only musical style I hear. It’s the caribbean rhythm and sounds that makes me say “What were they thinking? Customers who bought this item also bought. He filled me up with a wanderlust and with a sense of the world being a lot bigger and that there was a lot of magic out there waiting to be experienced. You cannot escape the emotions in this song.
