With Sounds That Can't Be Made, Marillion continue their successful musical journey. The 17th studio album is as soulful and powerful as ever, including 8 brand new songs. Recorded at Racket studio in England, the album echoes the great layered sound of albums like Marbles and Afraid of Sunlight, all that Marillion fans hope to hear on a new record. Songs like Gaza and Montreal show once more, that epic progressive songwriting can speak the musical language of the new millennium. Power and Lucky Man remind us that pop-rock music can also be powerful and deep. The new album cover has been designed by Simon Ward while the booklet will feature the contribution of artists including Antonio Seijas, Andy Wright, Carl Glover, Marc Bessant and photographs taken from onboard the International Space Station!

To say this album is a "grower" does not do it justice. The song-craft on Sounds That Can't Be Made is exemplary. The boys outdid themselves on this one.
I'll not go into a track-by-track review, as that has already been done eloquently by other reviewers. I will say that this is an album that needs to be listened to from beginning to end a few times, to really get to hear and appreciate what a masterpiece it is. The flow and feel of the album is just as enjoyable an experience as the individual songs are; and to my ears, there's not a weak track among the eight, even if some are more "immediate" then others.
Invest the time with this one. The payoff is more than worth it.
It is a musical crime that albums of this caliber can go unnoticed by the general public. It was a bold move to have the epic "Gaza" as the opening track; but I believe this song truly represents all the very best aspects of Marillion both musically and lyrically, and could come to be known as their crowning glory.
That it is also the opening track of this months CD sampler with Prog magazine can only fill me with hope that their music will get exposed to a wider audience, (although I imagine that anyone buying a magazine dedicated to Prog Rock has probably already heard of them!). But maybe they've not given them a listen of late. Well now is the time to get re-acquainted with these guys and give yourself a real treat.
I'm not usually one for writing reviews, but this album has moved me so much I felt compelled to. Do yourself a favour and discover what truly great music sounds like.
Sound That Can not Be Made is simply the best album of Marillion's life. The song "Montréal" is simply awsome and a tribute to the coolest side of Québec. This is my opinion, a longtime fan.
Thank you Marillion!
Je serai concis puisque j'en aurais trop long à dire sur ce nouvel album de Marillion... Sound That Can't Be Made est tout simplement le meilleur album de la vie de Marillion. La chanson Montréal est un ultime hommage au genre uniquement cool du Québec! C'est mon avis, un fan de longue date. Merci Marillion!
Added to this release is a six-track second CD that includes a bunch of acoustic and live tracks [all tracks are from the studio album].
From the disturbingly relevant Gaza, haunting and dark, to the light, airy, wintery Montreal. Every song is quality, no weak pieces. A nice return to form after they seemed to have gone on a long detour with "Happieness is the Road", which were painful to listen to.
