£82.99 – 4xLP, Limited Edition Boxset
Originally released in 1991, Holidays in Eden was Marillion’s sixth studio album – a scintillating, compelling rock album, with tracks such as ‘the party’ and ‘this town’ effortlessly accompanying singles like ‘no-one can’ and ‘dry land’.
These sets include a brand-new 2022 remixed stereo version of the album by Stephen W Tayler, as well as a full live show from hammersmith, London from 1991. the concert includes a number of tracks from Holidays in Eden, alongside favourites from previous albums such as berlin, incommunicado and much more. their previous album and first with Hogarth, season’s end, was written fairly quickly, leaning on a large amount of material already being written prior to Hogarth’s arrival. Holidays in Eden brought about a different challenge to the band’s new line-up, having to start from scratch with this new dynamic, which they talk about extensively within the book and documentary.
Holidays in Eden is a scintillating, compelling rock album, with tracks such as the party and this town effortlessly accompanying singles like no-one can and dry land. the essay and band interviews by Rich Wilson in the book, alongside the documentary “pain and heaven” on the blu-ray, provide a fascinating insight into the different writing process, the dynamic between the band and producer Chris Neil, and Marillion navigating record label commercial pressures to produce such a captivating album.
