Customer Reviews

Brave is the most ambitious album Marillion ever made (also the best one in my opinion).
F. Barrera
The final couple of songs - "The Great Escape" and "Made Again", are the highlights for me but this album is to be enjoyed since the very first second.
Heitor Manuel Santos
"Brave" is an album that you listen to on a good stereo or with headphones while you can sit down and really concentrate on it.

...Unless you are willing to give it time to sink in. This is one of those 'Concept' albums that few listeners will get instant gratification from. When I first recieved "Brave", I gave it the mandatory three spins before I even tried to come to any conclusions. Well, I decided that I did in fact like several songs/musical passages, but as a whole, it didn't quite strike me as much as more acsessible releases from the band such as "Afraid of Sunlight", "Seasons End" or "Holidays in Eden". So I ended up 'shelving' this release for several months----my mistake! After viewing the awesome "Marbles" DVD (deluxe edition), the material from "Brave" really captured my attention...enough so that I 'unshelved' the CD and gave it several more listens. Lucky Me...thats exactly what it took for me to see the light..."the bright lights and the noise". Now I can honestly say that I like everything about this album (with the possible exception of "Paper Lies"). Personal highlights are "Bridge", "Living With the Big Lie", "Goodbye to All That", "Alone Again in the Lap of Luxury", "The Great Escape" and "Made Again"....but again, I like the album as a 'Whole'. Now, as other reviewers have stated, this isn't a 'sunny', 'happy' listening experience---it is definitely a dark, somber story of a tortured (misplaced?) childhood. I would agree with another reviewer here...this album can instantly bring you 'down' and be somewhat depressing, so its not an album you will want to put on just anytime. But when your in that kind of mood, this will take you to a wonderful, Strange place that few albums can. 4.5 Stars...Strongly recommended if your willing!

When I finally "broke down" and gave Marillion an open berth to my ears and lobes, I didn't know where to start. I let a friend who had been into them for years guide me, and I wound up buying "Brave", "Season's End", and "Clutching at Straws" all at once. On first listens, I would say that "Brave" was my favorite of the three.
Now it's over 3 years hence, and all 3 CD's have grown on me immensely. However, when all is said and done, "Brave" is still my favorite. I don't quite get the debate over Fish vs. Steve Hogarth as to who is the better singer. I think it's all in the material they worked with. Both are strong. Now wash your hands.

If you want to get full enjoyment out of this CD, then do what the band suggests in the liner notes, "Play it loud with the lights off", however, I suggest that you also wear headphones, as there are many very quiet moments that might escape your ears if you don't. Like the opening line, "A Bridge is not a high place..." uttered by the girl before the fog horns start blowing. This whole CD is an entire experience, and you have to listen to it that way. There's no skipping songs or just listening to the first couple of songs and then shutting it off. It is the rarest of concept albums, the one that follows its concept from beginning to end. A lot of people felt it was too emotional, too dark and creepy, to listen to someone's life play out from one bad moment to the next, right from birth to the moment she jumps off the bridge and beyond. Well, Marillion shed their pop sound of Holidays In Eden sure enough on this outing. Not to say that Holidays In Eden is a bad CD, on the contrary, but the tone is completely different on this album. It's able to hold my interest from moment to moment, as the music is so dynamic, soft and slow one moment and loud as hell and frantic the next. H's lyrics and singing are fantastic here. He certainly came of age on this album, leaving Holidays and Season's End in the dust. I don't think I can say enough nice things about this CD. One thing you'll want to do if you aren't sure what to expect upon first listening, is to listen all the way through without anything going on in the background, at a time when it's just you and the music, and use those headphones, as, like I said, there are many little bits you'll miss otherwise, and make sure you have a hanky or a box of tissues, 'cause if you don't cry at the end, you're either a Vulcan or an android.Read more ›

So after CLUTCHING AT STRAWS, singer Fish left the band. In comes Steve Hogarth for 1989s SEASON'S END, a terrific balance of staying true to their art and moving forward. Next came HOLIDAYS IN EDEN, an obvious attempt by he band and the record company to go for popular appeal. HOLIDAYS has some terrific material, and I would that all pop had its level of musical integrity. So what did the band do next? A friggin concept album--and guess what? They scored a huge hit with the fans. BRAVE is what Marillion listeners were waiting for since MISPLACED CHILDHOOD. BRAVE is moody, depressing, tragic, touching and rocking. It may make you cry. It certainly will hold your attention if you let ot sink in and if you really listen. I bought the CD upon its release many years ago. I listened to it several times and some tracks caught my interest while others did not. That's fine. Many years later I began to give the album as a whole more attention. The full picture began to develop for me. Generally, BRAVE will show up as one of the top Marillion albums among fans, and it deserves to be.
