2 stars Having listened to this 2-CD set in its entirety on numerous occasions I was going to comment comprehensively but see that fellow reviewer James Lee has virtually read my mind, so read his review: there is no point me echoing much of what has already been written if I agree with it. The only difference of opinion I have with him is regarding the GENESIS and YES influences he hears in places: I am not reminded of either band when listening to this album and, in my opinion, MAGENTA pales in comparison. I suspect that if people buy this album hoping to be reminded of GENESIS or YES (at least in their earlier, great phase) then they could be disappointed. I am sad to say that about a contemporary Prog Rock band - a rare thing these days - when fans of the genre are clamouring for new, progressive rock music (or even new, good Prog Rock in the old style), but I won't be listening to this release again. If you want to make up your own mind then I suggest that you check out the MP3 samples on the band's Web site first before splashing out on this 2-CD set. As for my opinion, it's a 2-star release (Collectors/fans only). I don't hate it, but unfortunately it just does absolutely nothing for me.
