5 stars From time to time a group releases a perfect album and then has difficulty recovering from it, this is the case of MAGYAR POSSE.

This group offers basic minimalist music that infuses deep mantranic, psychedelic and tribal sounds; languorous sounds, progressive explosions and captivating tunes like the whirlwind 'Whirlpool of Terror and Tension' with a jerky, frantic rhythm that makes you jump without realizing it, which tortures you with terror while keeping you in intense musical tension ... Like the hypnotic-looking 'Popzag' with always a hint of vintage guitars from the 60s, with a sound that vibrates and seems uncontrollable, taking up the tune of the first title and shaping it into a more playful drift... Like the fabulous 'Sudden Death' and its bewitching violin which takes you to arid lands without fear of the cold or the dark; tunes often on a basic post-rock movement which offers disconcerting, subliminal and magnificent musical ramifications... creating climates filled with nostalgia and contemplation. The 'European Lover/Random Avenger' with a proven cinematic tune composed before we invented this word recently, a tune that takes you off on metronomic post-psychedelic, the kind of sounds that lead to ecstasy with the contribution of the violin and distant voices. Finally it is the shortest tangled track 'One by One' which sounds the most post-rock. The 'Intercontinental Hustle' sounds the most avant-garde with an adrenaline rush of sound that sets the speakers on fire accompanied by a twirling violin.

In short, a perfect album in the genre.
