5 stars I do not go to proove that this album is a masterpiece. For me it is an evidence. I listen to "Mekanik Destructiw Kommandoh" for twenty years and in every listening I always feel the same fascination for this unique music.

I would just like to give some recommendations to people who clearly dislike MDK.

MDK is clearly an acquired taste because the music is completly different of everything you already know.

So take your time with this one. Don't judge it too fast. And more important, don't begin your exploration of Magma's music by MDK even if it's the better one.

Listen to their CDs chronologically. First "Kobaia" (jazz moods already treated in a personnal way), then 1001░C (a transitional record) and finally MDK (there are no more visible links with the jazz, and all elements of the music of Magma are pushed up to their max : rhythm still and always, the riffs of brasses, singing coming from another world,...)

Essential : a masterpiece of progressive music. One of my personnal top ten.

H.NOT | 5/5 |
