3 stars 3.5 stars for sure

NIck Magnus is without hesitation one of my fav keybordists from rog music , his contribution to Steve Hackett albums is essential. For more then 20 yesrs he has a solo career with 5 albums released so far under his name. From what I've heared from him Children of another god is his most acomplished album so far. His latest work issued this year is N'monix after 4 years silence from previous album. Well, this is another elegand old style prog reminescent a lot from glory days of this music '70. Guests are present again Steve Hackett, Tony Patterson or Rob Townsend among others. As I said this is mid tempo , laid back prog, but composed with grace and elegants passages are all over, showing that Nick Magnus even is in his late 50 , next year he will turn 60 is still a well respected figure in this genre and still with plenty of good ideas. Two pieces stands for me as really really great , the opening Time and the fabulous , I think one of his better and most intresting pieces he ever wrote is Eminent victorians, kick ass tune, the lyrics aswell are intresting, Steve Hackett providing some tasty guitar parts remind me in places of Gentle Giant atmosphere, special in instrumental sections. The rest are also strong but not great. All in all another worthy album from this talented musician, I do not think that this is his best album but close enough, Children of another God is his his prime release, at least for me. 3.5 stars, and a good aqusition. Nice art work and all.
