I don't like Marillion, neither the Gabriel-era Genesis rip-off period nor the boring dad prog phase. Power Windows without hesitation.

I loved Misplaced Childhood when it first came out, but now find it boring as hell and haven't listened to it in its entirety in years.  It just comes across as depressing to me now.

Power Windows is an album that has grown on me upon each listen (after my initial disinterest in it) and is probably my favorite post Moving Pictures Rush album.

Probably the easiest poll I've voted on since I don't like any Marillion.

Never heard of Marillion until I joined this forum. Still have no clue who they are or where they came from. For all I know the people on this site made them up lol.

Fish is going to come over to your house, get you drunk then steal your wife and dump her only to experience the pain of heartbreak. And write a concept album about it.

I don't doubt I could get into Marillion, but I do doubt their ability to top a masterpiece like PoW.

I really like Power Windows so its an easy vote for me.  With songs like Big Money, Grand Designs, Mystic Rythms, Manhattan Project, Marathon & Middletown Dreams how can you vote against it?  For me its one of Rush's best.
