3 stars How dare I write about MAGMA when I'm not into Zeuhl? Well, for those who read this lines, I must say that I love traditional symphonic prog and this is my first experience with this band. So, it will be a point of view from an old prog listener but newbie in the sub- genre.

After several listenings, I would say that this is a dark fusion among contemporary classical music, jazz, space and... madness! Very dense, very strong and very strange. Piano, organ, sax, drums, chorus, voices... and nothing in the traditional way! This album is absolutely different from any other I ever heard. It seems even chaotic and reiterative at the first listening, but intensity is so incredible that made me feel involved on music along the whole opus. Really, even though this style isn't my cup of tea, I recognize I had an unique experience.

For those who look for mellow or simple prog music, or even the conventional symphonic beauty, I would recommend to keep far from "Köhntarkösz". But those who like the most difficult and intense side of progressive will find, at least, an incredible album.
