Current Music: Marillion - "You're Gone"

This song is great. I'm sitting here in amazement at how much history I hear in these guys. There's a little Radiohead, a little of The Church, a little of The Cure, a little of The Alarm, a little U2, clearly masterful. It's not history in the sense they're copying them, but I think what I'm hearing is the total reshaping of that thematic music in a way that doesn't deny the roots but transcends the nostalgia, in ways The Cure or The Church haven't been able to. I'm really impressed.

But I *still* really like "Genie".
