Marillion - An Hour Before It's Dark (2022)

The 19th album from this British band.

The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

It seems like the leading and best progressive rock bands is making comebacks after the Covid epidemic has closed down the industry for the last three years.

Marillion is indeed among the best progressive rock bands on this planet..... and probably in the universe too.

Their last album was in 2016 and a comeback was in order.

We get the usual art-rock from the band on An Hour Before It's Dark. 

There is a lot of melancholy in their music. That suits their music.

The songs are on average very long. The longest song is clocking in at over fifteen minutes. The vocals is very good and ditto for the guitars. There are a couple of great guitar solos here. 

The overall quality is very good indeed.

Marillion has made a convincing comeback and will regain their throne with this album.

3.5 points
