    The "Market Square Heroes" 12-inch with "Grendel" was something very special when it was released in '82. That whetted my appetite for "Script..." which I absolutely love. But after that my interest in Marillion somehow of fell abruptly off a cliff. I don't doubt that there's good stuff on "Fugazi" and "Misplaced Childhood", but whereas I have a lifelong obsession with "Script...", I don't even own any of the others.

    I was in a huge Marillion phase around the time of Marbles. Bought a lot of the H era (not a fan of the Fish era, personally) back catalog and followed them for a few albums after. Kinda fell off but check in every once in a while.

    They have some absolutely powerful songs. “The Great Escape” is just achingly sad yet beautiful. From the lyrical story and vocal delivery to the perfect phrasing on guitar. Too many excellent songs to mention, but that one is especially moving for me.

    Great band, and tip of the cap to see them still doing it after all these years. Still being creative, not resting on their laurels.

    Still listen to Fugazi, Script for a Jester's Tear, and Misplaced Childhood when in a nostalgic frame of mind. Saw them live a few times during that time.
    Lost interest after the fourth album and never bothered with any of their post Fish stuff.
