4 stars Magenta are a relatively new band that first came to my attention when I was them at the Progeny festival last year.One girl backed by 6 guys playing as tight as you can.Very impressed I was with them.I immediately got their album' Seven' which had the same high standards of the live performance and then later purchased Revolutions.On first listen I wasn't sure about it as it seemed to have slightly clumsy lyrics and was maybe a lttle too sprawling (as 2 CD sets can be).However after about 3 or 4 listens I can say this is one of my favourite 2CD sets.It's wonderfully ambitious music in a syphonic prog vein featuring the lovely voice of Christina Murphy.Some will argue that it just rips off Yes and Genesis but then that is a tired and oft used argument that has been levelled at many 'neo-prog' bands.For me it is an excellent addition to my prog collection that will get many future plays.
