Brave è il settimo album in studio del gruppo musicale britannico Marillion, pubblicato il 7 febbraio 1994 dalla EMI.

DescrizioneModifica

Dopo aver registrato tutti i pezzi presso lo Chateau Marouatte in Francia, i Marillion tornarono in madrepatria alla ricerca dell'idea giusta per i testi. Il frontman Steve Hogarth rimase colpito da una storia ascoltata alla radio che riguardava una ragazza trovata in stato confusionale dalla polizia sul ponte Severn Bridge.[1] Tale fatto di cronaca ispirò i testi di tutto il disco, trasformandolo in un concept album.

Brave è diventato anche un cortometraggio low budget diretto da Richard Stanley, disponibile in DVD.

TracceModifica

Testi di Steve Hogarth e John Helmet, musiche dei Marillion.
