The latest album from Marillion had high hopes preceding it's coming out a few weeks ago (with myself included), this for a few reasons. Firstly, the band had not put out a proper studio album in 3 or 4 years (a long period for them). Secondly, they had leeked a couple tracks, one being the epic length "Gaza", a powerful and progressive piece that musically was sure to please their fans (the lyrics are controversial, but I will leave this debate to others)..


Having now given the album quite a few spins in the last weeks, I must admit that I did not find a weak track on Sounds that can't be made, covering most of Hogarth led Marillion's musical styles. For me this CD is their strongest since Marbles and will certainly be one that I will revisit often in the coming years. Being French Canadian, I must mention the track "Montreal", that was written as an hommage to their faithful Québécois fans. It is a very beautiful piece of music that deeply moves me.


Thanks again to Marillion for being still able to produce such great music, after more than 30 years and a bundle of albums. Hopefully there is still much to come from this dedicated band.
