Marillion are one of the UK music scene's best kept secrets; purveyors of soulful, powerful, and often deeply-moving music, whose blistering live shows leave their audiences breathless. This concert film puts YOU in the crowd, filmed over the final 2 nig

This is how rock concerts should be - genuine music and adequate visual effects that do not distract.

Marillion have changed quite a bit from the early 80's. Some fans jumped ship as Steve Hogarth replaced the departed Fish. I like the vibe of both versions of Marillion. To be honest,I could not imagine the Fish-fronted Marillion in 2008 - so both Fish and Marillion gained from the separation. So what's Marillion's music like in 2008? Genuine, adventurous, atmospheric, intelligent rock music with touches of everything else. Actually, it's quite difficult to describe Marillion - but the closest you can get is a combination of Radiohead and Coldplay, still better.

Starting with 'Anoraknophobia' in 2001, the band finally started to spark again following two disappointing albums. 'Marbles' released in 2004, is a masterpiece - the songs 'The invisible man,' 'Neverland' and 'Angelina' to name but a few, are real gems. 'Somewhere else' released in 2007 got mixed reactions - there were quite a few gems but some obvious filler as well. (It was difficult to follow up 'Marbles')

So when the band released this dvd from the 'Somewhere else' tour, I approached it with caution. Actually, it turned out to be the best dvd I saw for a long time. The 'Somewhere else' tracks are much better live that the studio versions, and the performances are, to say the least, haunting. Musicianship is first class and Steve Hogarth is one of the most magnetic, still down-to-earth frontmen ever. There are also various tracks from previous albums, but only one from the Fish era. This should not be considered a minus, since the included tracks are all 5 star material. The bonus material is quite interesting with various performances from other concerts from the same tour.

If you don't know Marillion, you're not alone. But you're missing out.
If you remember them, but haven't checked them out lately, you're in for a huge surprise.

Drawing comparisons with Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Coldplay, Keane, Crowded House and other varied artists, nothing seems quite satisfactory in defining this highly emotional and dynamic rock outfit. I discovered them over 20 years ago with their former frontman, and in the last 2 years have rediscovered the amazing back catalogue with the charismatic Steve "h" Hogarth at the front mic.

Whether you remember Marillion from the 80's heyday or have never heard of them, take a small risk and order this disc post-haste. The best concert video the band has ever put out, it boasts excellent production values, an excellent performance and a great introductory setlist. I've probably watched my copy at least 30/40 times, and the depth of the tracks and the intensity of the performances is up there with the best in the business. But sadly, since going truly independent long before "indie" was cool, these internet pioneers are grossly underreported in the music press.

Pulling from their 14th Album "Somewhere Else" through highlights of their 20+year careers, Somewhere in London has something for almost every musical taste in the rock-out, deep ballad or bounce-along tracks that run through themes both deeply personal and highly political.

A concert vid that might actually just move a tear or two -- a very rare experience indeed. These guys know to how to work a crowd and the production team translates the vibe with the audience tremendously well, even shooting some angles from within the audience to draw you in as if you're right there.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lesson in independence November 25, 2008
Format:DVD
Few bands have achieved a status where they pretty much can do whatever they want, just taking its fans in consideration, without submitting themselves to contracts with record companies. Marillion is on this road for quite a long time now and its releases are as constant as they are superb.

Somewhere in London is a celebration of independence, where the band was able to fill 2 DVDs with material that may not be relevant to "the market", but it is relevant and eagerly anticipated by the fanbase.

DVD1 is a mix between two nights at the Forum, giving preference to the latest album back then (Somewhere Else). It is quite a contrversial album among the fanbase, with some love/hate reactions, but as far as the songs present on this DVD go, the band raised the bar with incredible live versions, with highlights being Somewhere Else and The Other Half.

For the rest of DVD1, quite an unbalance between new and old tracks (of course, limited to the H era, since the band has almost completely abandoned playing Fish-era songs), favouring most recent works like Marbles and Anoraknophobia. However, The Release comes as quite a pleasant surprise, in a version superior to the original B-Side from the 90s.

DVD2 is even a bigger treat, opening with the tracks that were not included on DVD1 from the two nights, including a definitive record of the majestic Ocean Cloud, and a nice selection of older songs, including a Fish-era one (Sugar Mice). It is nice how the crowd becomes part of Sugar Mice and Easter, which is quite a refreshing take on two tracks played and included in lots of live albums / DVDs.
