Marillion - Radiation (1998)

The tenth album from this British band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

They had help from guest musicians providing backing vocals.

The band was very much active and alive those days as they are today too. 

Their output had been good after the split with Fish and there had even been some great pieces of music albums along the way.

The band went a bit half-acoustic on Radiation and went for minimalism. 

The Radiohead influences is very much present here and the music does not give their excellent guitarist Steve Rothery a lot to do. This is Steve Hogarth's album.

The album is too silent for my liking.

The quality of the songs on this fifty minutes long album is a mix of good and decent. There are some really good songs here and they makes this album well worth checking out.

Radiation is one of the weakest Marillion albums but still well worth a purchase.

2.5 points
