Uncool as f*@k

Advantages: Epic soundscapes, melancholy melodies, soaring guitar solos.
Disadvantages: Complicated music too bewildering for thicko music journalists.

"We didn't set up Marillion so's people could put us in a box and call us 'progressive' ... God I hate that word. We're just Marillion. Full stop." The words of Fish in 1983. For those who don't know, Fish (a nickname deriving from the amount of time ...

Review of Marillion

Aero-who?

Advantages: talent and longevity
Disadvantages: often not heavy enough for my taste

...Unless you’ve been living in an alternative dimension for the last 24 years, then the chances are that the name Aerosmith will not be entirely alien to you. Most likely you have heard some of their songs, perhaps you even own an album or two – certainly ...
