Chris ElliottNever been a fan of the H era. Liked Seasons End but the next album put me right off.
This is the first album I'm genuinely excited about from Marillion since Clutching At Straws.23 hours ago · 12
Joseph HindThis is a brilliant album, took more than one listen as is the case with all the bands stuff but very happy with it and certainly worth the wait. Some fantastic sounds, H's vocals really hit the spot. Everything just seems to flow, amazing with the sound turned up!23 hours ago · 8

Augusto Gintama ChiarleJust completed my 3rd listen in a row. This is the very best sound I heard in a long time, and I'm not speaking just about Marillion sound, I'm speaking in general. The way music is building, the atmospheres, the perfectly balanced instrumental lines... Everything fits well to make more than "just" a concept album. This is a must-have, for both Marillion fans and for rock lovers.23 hours ago · 22
Tomasz MagdziarzI listened twice so far so I'm far away to tell this is the best album in H era of Marillion. Nevertheless, I know that each next listening make it closer to the top of my favourite😛In sum good job Marillion!👌👍23 hours ago · 1

Jay HenleyMarillion with h are one of the few Artists that have continually evolved with their music....
Very few Artists have ever done this.
I can think of The Beatles and Bowie but after that Im struggling to think of Artists that have musically really evolved.22 hours ago · 5
Paul HumphreysIn my humble opinion this is lyrically and musically their strongest album to date. Sometimes everything comes together at the right time and place. This is definitely Marillion's time.22 hours ago · 2
Alan HigginbothamGreat album....as for those who don't rate it and sell concert tickets on the back of hearing it....I have no idea what your expectations were...I'd genuinely love to know what other Marillion albums you are comparing it to, to be so disappointed....just sayin'😊21 hours ago
Eddie Roy MalthouseThis Marillion fan of 36 years is stunned to the point of tears how good this album is. True progressive rock that grows and grows with every listen. Stunning and moving truly great music. I love Marillion and always have!!!5 days ago · 20
Michael William SabolAfter listening through it, I said it kinda sounds like "Brave" but more progressive.Then I saw what the band posted about it and they said it sounds like "Brave" and really powerful. Sounds like a match to me. Can't wait for the Kez show in November.5 days ago · 9
Andy GassonI've played FEAR start to finish 4 times today. Can't seem to stop listening to it. No band can stop me in my tracks like Marillion. It should not be possible for them to keep delivering the goods but somehow they do. Unbelievable how good this album is.4 days ago · 6
Ymerej KcocnahListened to this album 6 times already and still can't move on. Fantastic album and the best output since Marbles. 10/10.....put that in perspective Wish you Where Here and Grace under Pressure are probably my only 10/10 albums. Boys you never get boring and it's a pleasure to have heard your music. Thank you.......best £27 I have spent in my hobby called music.3 days ago · 2
John PantosHave listened through 7-8 times now since it arrived Friday. Much like Brave, it's growing on me a bit more every time and the songs are already planting their melodies in my mind. I seldom listen to entire albums these day, but am really enjoying this work. Cannot wait til end of October (and maybe springtime!)5 days ago · 3
Walter Locht"White Paper" is a beautiful and surprising chord-changes master class with so great melodies on top. Very impressive! (And I even haven't gotten into the lyrics yet!) Thank you so much for being still around and with all that atention to detail as always!5 days ago · 2
Lax MadapatyThere's a reason I consider Marillion to be the Godfathers of progressive rock. Before them, the so called progressive rock bands wrote about science fiction and stuff I never cared about. In come Marillion and writes about childhood, alcoholism's devastating effects, personal stories, the human condition. I could connect to those themes, enjoy the music at a different level altogether! Long Live Marillion! Thanks for writing about stuff you care about. Gaza was a stunner, so was Ocean Cloud and now this!1 day ago
Marc VuijkI am waiting for my cd to arrive in the post so i have to do with listening to spotify on my jbl 3 wich is a good sound but marillion deserves my normal speakers. So far i love the leavers and the new kings and eldorado as well but i must say i am not to fond of "living in fear"
I want to like it but its not working for me at the moment.
I have to wait for my cd to arrive and listen to it properly.
My alltime marillion songs remain " the invisible man and this strange engine" but the new kings could be up there, who knows😃
And to the other people who still say marillion isnt as good as with fish, its a stupid comment cause H took marillion in a different direction, further than Fish ever would have been able to go.
Don't get me wrong"script for a jesters tear " is amazing and so is Fugazi but "marbles, afraid of sunlight and brave are right up there. Even albums like "this strange engine and anorakphobia " are amazing and very strong albums.
For me Marillion with H is magical while marillion with fish was good but limited!!!!5 days ago · 3
Joe MotzI've been listening for a few days to the download, but my disc arrived today in the post. It's playing at this very moment, but it's too early to pin down any favorites. That said, I do like the whole of "The Leavers" & "The New Kings" quite a bit. This is an album that is going to take me some time to take in and understand, but so far I'm digging it quite a bit.5 days ago · 3
Andy LewisIt's amazing what their albums do each time you listen to them. On first listen I thought where's Steve Rothery gone. But then on the next few listens he came through loud and clear. There's so many layers to the tracks I wouldn't know where to start. It's very much in the same vain as brave. White paper is this albums sky above the rain. So much light and shade throughout. A brilliant album. Looking forward to hearing them live.5 days ago · 1
Gert van BruggenFinally had the time to listen, in the car. Not the best circumstances, but I already know this is a masterpiece and I can't wait until the weekend to enjoy it the way it should be done: alone and with no lights on. Unmatched quality and worth the long wait!4 days ago · 1

Marc MekidoncLiving in France, I have not yet received the pre-ordered FEAR album (and I'm quite worry, in fact). I listened the downloaded tracks from Pledge Music and I an say I really loved what I heard. It's always amazing when a band continue to makes so good music and evolves so well. Marillion does it perfectly. Thank you boys for your music, during all these years.3 days ago · 1

Wendy KentLike others my reaction was that it sounds a bit like Brave, which sadly is not an album I like. However it is much lighter and much more understandable. Can't wait for Aylesbury in November.5 days ago · 1

José SchaapBeing a fan since 1988 and all those years i still wonder why this music grabs me. Got Fear in today and as always i said great album after listening it once, now ive to say after listening it 5 times.. its an amazing album and the music still hits me straight in the heart!

Dirk BelitzSuch an amazing album guys! Another one of the best you ever did! Standing in line with 'brave' and 'marbles' ... couldn't say what's best ... and there's no need to anyway ... a big THANK YOU for this georgious piece of art, for decades of music that takes my heart and mind to another world and for your continuity in producing sounds and musical genius like ... I don't know ... is there any other band comparable to MARILLION??? 😉

Matthew Van HornGlad I didn't pay for this one. It's preachy, self-righteous, dripping with regressive white guilt. It's a Howard Zinn musical. Yes, Steve, you ARE naive. Melting your means of protecting yourself won't save you when a Muslim shouting God is Great shoots up one of your shows. Good luck with that.5 days ago
Rick CarrGreat album and well worth the wait. I've only listened to it once so far and looking forward to countless listens over the next few weeks.

Michael G HaynesI'm in the middle of my first listen right now and I am definitely digging the new album. Not sure where I'd 'rank'it. I'm not even sure it's possible for me to rank their body of work anymore. I just wish I could have splurged for a signed deluxe cd package this time - I think it's the first time since Anoraknophobia I didn't do go deluxe.7 days ago

Dennis GlaaskerThis album is incredible. Sometimes I pitty with Steve hogart...about 30 years with Marillion and people still all the talking about Fish.. I must admit.. I am guilty too. I recall going to Ahoy Rotterdam late 80s to see the Seasons End Tour, and when i heard a group of young girls screaming 'Hogey Hogey' I was pretty much sure Marillion would go the wrong turn, as I also found songs like 'Hooks in You' too poppy that time. But I have been proven wrong. This album rocks and has a beautiful atmosphere that fans of all ages will recognize and love.5 days ago
