Marillion - Sounds That Can't Be Made (2012)
Not only is this an beautiful, uplifting masterpiece, but it might be my favorite Marillion album yet (although Marbles comes pretty close). As much as I appreciate the Fish era, this album and Marbles cement the Hogarth era as Marillion's best and most original period. The songs are expertly constructed for maximum emotional effect especially on the epic masterwork "Gaza" which connects the music with the lyrics incredibly well. Additionally, the crystal-clear production on the album gives the songs that extra shine which boosts the overall quality in ways untold. In all, this is prog rock at its most beautiful and, arguably, its best.
