4 stars Carl Orff forms a rock band and runs into a humourless Frank Zappa? Next door, they hear Ian Carr's Nucleus playing electric modal jazz. Across the hall from Ian Carr's Nucleus is Osibisa. Both Carl & Frank invite the groups over and they record Magma's 1.001 Centigrades. That's about it. Of note, however, is the Zeuhl sound fully realized on the opener _Riah Sahiltaahk_ which they develop to the fullest on subsequent albums. Still a little too jazzy for most prog.rock listeners and not rock enough for fusion fans. The bass guitar is much higher in the mix than on the previous debut. Still not a great place to start for the Zeuhl sound. A solid 4 stars. The best Magma album from their early period(first 3).
