4 stars Karfagen - this excellent band that for some good years is a name in prog rock circles, conducted by no other then Antony Kalugin - the head master behind the band, responsable for all the music is to be heared here as on previous albums. Magician's theater is the name of the game here, and is a truly great work in same league with Solitary sandpiper journey and Lost symphony (their most acomplished works so far, at least for me). Graced by another excellent art work, as all presentation, Karfagen done it again, musicaly speaking this is awesome, lots of twists and turns, musical mystical adventure is all I can saying about this release. Fans of vintage prog, will love this one as previouses releases , lot to offer and Antony Kalugin is a name to remember and a true talented musician in prog circles and is respected all over the world with each band where is he involved as Sunchild or Hoggwash for example. Each piece is great, maybe with a plus on ending giant tune Magician's Spell , clocking around 22 min, this is pure pleasure and delight, here is happening lots of memorable instrumental passages and all is magic. Symphonic prog complexity with acustic guitars, folky parts, all is here at highest level . So, all in all Magician's theater is another worthy album in Karfagen discography and this band is among the best and most intresting ones listner ever experince in prog rock realm. 4 stars for sure.
