FEAR (F*** Everyone And Run) is the band s eighteenth studio album and features 5 brand new tracks. The feeling within the band themselves is that they may well have produced their best ever work. Marillion has certainly not mellowed with age; the album artwork shows the acronym FEAR embossed on a gold ingot, and the songs themselves bear the hallmark of true quality.
While the album title itself is certainly provocative, it s not meant to be offensive. The title itself features as a line in the track New Kings and is delivered as a plaintive falsetto. Steve Hogarth said, We ve used FEAR as a title with some relish, but only as it shows that we haven t shied away, but it s said with sadness. There are two basic impulses behind human behaviour: Love and Fear, and all the good stuff comes from love .
FEAR sees the band taking on the big themes but they do not see it as their place to preach to people. New Kings looks at the ravening beast that modern capitalism seems to have evolved into, El Dorado examines the notions of political entitlement and the modern challenges for the UK, The Leavers examines the impact of a transient life on the road for those constantly waving goodbye. The job is simple says Hogarth, We use the amazing privilege of having both a platform and an audience to encourage people to look in the mirror and ask themselves the big questions by doing just that ourselves .
With the final tinkering and finessing done, with FEAR. Marillion show that they are as vital and potent as ever. Peerless and, yes, fearless...
