3 stars Their swansong album

Decoding the soul is the third album of Magnitude 9 from 2004, less good then the predecesor, at least for me, because here the band sounds more metal than prog. Anyway i find it a good album but nothing more, not a highlight all the pieces have the same level. It will be rude from me not to metion that Corey Brown's voice is excelent for this kind of music, but i prefer him on the previous album Reality in focus where shines on every piece, great voice and very underrated in my opinin. The rest of the musicians are very ok, specialy the main man of the band Rob Johnson who really knows to use the instrument and deliver some very efficinet riffs and solos, the drums sounds powerful and combined with the bass of Ian Ringler is a total rythm machine. So, in conclusion not a spectacular album in prog metal, kinda unoriginal in places but good, 3 stars for Decoding the soul.
