    Marillion has these 'Marillion Weekends' things these days where they play three different entire sets for each night and often whole albums from start to finish, and not just the current album - three or four or ten albums ago, like all of Brave or something. Gotta admire their commitment. It would be harder for Yes to try something like that though. Then again, Marillion has had the same lineup for over 30 years now.
    It boggles my mind to realize that, instrumentally, the Marillion that recorded album #2, Fugazi, in 1984, is the same that just released AHBID, this year. Crazy. That helps, but they’ve also made choices, too, to foreground new material, take it out there and play it. And then beyond that, on any given night, you know they’ll play some (what passes for) hits, but which ones? Who knows! Maybe “Kayleigh”, but maybe “Neverland”.

    (Parenthetically interesting that Fugazi, also my gateway album to the band, is the only album never touched by Steve Hogarth: no songs played in concert since, except for an instrumental version of “Jigsaw” when they needed a J song for an alphabetical Weekend theme night. Which but also, you’d kinda think would be the one Fugazi song H could maybe get behind, lyrically and vocally, but no such luck. I do wonder if any of the other band members would like to tear into “Assassing” or “Incubus” some night, but this is the price for band cohesion…)

      "Very good" is overly polite.

          According to Henry's "Yes: Where Are They Now?" site, Rabin announced in 2014 that his vocal album would be out soon, whereas in April 2020 he said it was 60% finished and that he thought it would be released at the end of that year. I don't think many albums were released that year. Maybe he will release the album as a download without putting it on a CD or vinyl but there will be new music, dammit.

          In terms of perfectionism and time to make an album, Trevor Rabin is the new Eric Johnson.

            To me Marillion with Fish and Marillion with Hogarth are two different bands, that have little to nothing in common but the name.

            I like creating career spanning concerts out of Live recordings for my own enjoyment. I have created one for Fish solo + Fish era Marillion and one for Hogarth era Marillion. For me the two don't mix together. And after being Marillion with Hogarth for 33 years now and with 15 studio albums under their belt I would be completely oké with it if Marillion never performed a Fish era song ever again.

              So if in 2014 he said it would be released soon and in 2020 he said 60% was done, how much was finished in 2014? Let's say 20%. That means he did the next 40% over 6 years. So by those maths, the album should be out in 2026.

              For the record; I don't think Rabin is working on it anymore. If anything I think Trevor has sort of silently retired.

                  What's doppelganger in Dutch Arno?
                  Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
                  Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

                    Dubbelganger. Not much difference there.

                      Why in the world would Rabin retire at 68 without putting out the solo album that he has been working on for years?

                      He was on the Outlanders album that was released at the end of last year. The song Rabin plays on, "Closer to the Sky", sounds great.

                      From a comment on youtube about the album:

                      "From what I researched, this is a great album that promises and with the collaboration of great music artists! Joe Satriani; Walter Giardino (Rata Blanca); Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson); Steve Rothery (Marillion); Trevor Rabin (Yes); Al Di Meola; Mike Oldfield; Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Sons Of Apollo); Vernon Reid (Living Colour) and Marty Friedman. Tarja's voice is unique"

                        I think Rabin has retired from touring, but I can’t imagine him not finishing whatever album(s) he is working on.

                          Well, why he would retire at 68? Because he can, financially speaking. He can live very comfortably without ever working again. Because he perhaps has no longer the motivation and lust for creating music. Because he finds other things in life taking priority, like family. Bill Bruford retired at 60.

                          Perhaps he is still working in his studio on that album. But I certainly don't see much urge from him to release something, to go public.

                              If rumors are to be believed we will get that new Peter Gabriel album first.

                                Peter Gabriel and Tom Scholz are sort of my benchmarks for taking 10000 years between records, but Rabin is giving them a really good run.
