4 stars Here's a well kept secret from the UK. For those who enjoy the more aggressive instrumental side of Marillion(Fugazi without the downer lyrics), the more progressive tracks from the Genesis _Wind & Wuthering, _And Then There Were Three_ to _Duke_ period, '78-'82 period Rush, _Black Noise_ era FM, Porcupine Tree & German synth rock(Schicke, Fuhrs & Frohling). Throw in some Pendragon, although the vocalist isn't quite as an acquired taste as Nick Barrett. Magrathea surprisingly have a gallic sound which reminds me a bit of early Ange. Magrathea also remind me of a more symphonic version an American duo called Ebeling Hughes from Detroit. Tracks _Fear Of The Unknown_ and _Reunion_ are some serious modern prog.rock classics from MAGRATHEA. The great thing about this band is that it will take several listens to appreciate their craft. Every listen, I hear something new. Magrathea is hard to get tired of. For that alone, you should be curious. Recommended.
Gooner | 4/5 |
