In a few words:
As I promised some months before (in Albion post), here is an album from one of my favorite bands. Although I could present "Script For A Jester's Tear", or "Misplaced Childhood" or "Brave" (probably the most known of their albums) I preferred to present Marbles because summarizes the characteristics of the band, which are: "emotional" melodies, nice guitar work, beautiful voice(s) and great atmosphere in their songs. The band's main influences are Genesis (especially in their first albums) Pink Floyd (in guitar solos mostly) and Radiohead (in their latter albums).

Personal highlights:
"Fantastic Place", "Ocean Cloud", "Don't Hurt Yourself" and "Neverland"
