I like Marillion, but only the Fish era.  I was lucky enough to see them twice during the 80s.  A friend saw them on the bill with Rush, and that must have been great!

I don´t compare the two eras of the band at all - they are two completely different bands depending on who´s singing. I prefer Fish-era Marillion, and although the "other band with the same name" has some good songs (Easter, Hooks in You, Beautiful etc), I dislike 95% of their output.
25 years of material with H, and the ones you mentioned are from when he first joined the band. They have come along way in evolving into the brilliant band they are currently.

H Marillion isn't good, its outstanding!

Same here. I saw them 2 times on the Misplaced Childhood Tour. Great live band back then.
I can't stand the Hogarth years, just not my cup of tea.

I have little respect for the non H Marillion fan. I think that fan is clueless. :)

I haven't heard anything past afraid of sunlight. that one and brave are really good. not as good as anything with fish though. seasons end has a couple good tunes from what I remember. holidays in eden blows.

H has a pretty boring voice, the band would be ten times better with me singing. or treeduck. anybody.

every song with fish is better than anything with H.

Believe me, I did try to get into their latest efforts, with ZERO luck. I bought Marillion.com, Anoraknophobia and the live album following that. Heard Marbles and fell asleep. Sorry to disappoint you, Tick...

I saw Marillion in 1983 open for Rush at Radio City Music Hall. The boos were very loud.

With Fish, Marillion was a top ten band for me.  I gave them an honest try with H, but it just didn't take.  I revisit them from time to time, but I just don't get the same buzz from them with H.  There are a few great songs, but some of it is so bland and meh...  the magic left.
