These norwegian proggers have made quite a few great albums, this one is no exception! from the very first track "Trick Of The trade" ..you know your are entering a world of brilliant music! With superb vocal arrangements, time signatures and musical breaks aplenty you are guaranteed a pleasure ride with Magic Pie.
Sometimes reminding me of that other great Swedish prog band A.C.T, with the staccato loaded sequences and superb tight muscianship!! Magic Pie have always turned out excellent and now they have raised the bar, both for themselves as a band but also for those to follow.
I admit, it took quite some spins to realise how great this album is, but once I got it, I was hooked!
This fine album holds many tunes for you to enjoy, there is something for everyone, guitar freaks will have a field day with the brilliant soli - that soars ever so often, but also friends of keyboard will be happy, not to mention all of you out there that loves a good (superb) vocal and great vocal arrangements, yes friends you get the whole package with this outing!
Special mention to "Tears Gone Dry" with the beautiful opening of E-Bow guitar..then the tune transform into a power play...excellent just excellent!!
You know you have to own this album!! Dont you?!
It really is a MUST OWN!!
Its not only magic...its MAGIC PIE!!
NOW go get it!!
