Rezension bezieht sich auf: Misplaced Childhood (24 Bit Digital Remaster)(+ Bonus CD) (Audio CD)
Marillion might no longer be flavour of the month, but this remastered version of their 80's classic is a vibrant reminder of the 'good old days'. 'Misplaced Childhood' is probably famous for contain the Band's two most successful songs - Kayleigh and Lavender - but it is difficult to rate this album purely by its individual songs. This is after all a concept album, and we are meant to regard it as one piece of music. However, unlike so many epic concept albums of the 70's, this one actually works!
This reissue not only presents us with a 24-bit remastered version of the original album tracks, a lavish booklet containing details of the recording session, but it also includes a second CD with B-sides and alternative versions, plus all the songs from the album in demo form. This demo is of course not as classy as the final version, however, we can see how the album developed, from Fish's early lyrics to the massive drum sound (drummers will love this demo version).
All in all a really good buy. Whether you own a battered vinyl copy, which you bought first time round, or even if you have never heard vintage Marillion, this album is surely the one to go for.
