4 stars Arabs In Aspic is one of those fantastic bands that emerged from Norway wich delivers great classic sounding heavy prog. Since Far Out In Aradabia to the new album Madness and Magic they produced notable records. Madness and Magic bring us a different vibe, a more acoustic feel, but still followed with their sound. I Vow to Thee, My Screen is the opening track and it is a great almost space rock song which delivers beautiful melodies and lyrics that revolve around society's obsession with modern technologies. Lullaby for Modern Kids, Part 1 is a true example of the band's sound. Heavy riffs and great guitar solos make this song a perfect follow up to a more space rock oriented first song. Fantastic lyrics continue through out the album. Heaven in Your Eye is the epic of the album and it rounds up various styles that AIA delivered on this record, from some folk elements to a truly heavy organ and guitar driven parts, and elements of space rock.
