5 stars Recently broke the barriers of prejudice and sought to know the neo-prog. Magenta me really intrigued by the fact that a woman on vocals, this is a gap between bands of the same style and in this case is quality. The guitars follow the style and YES and GENESIS both in style and in so trimbres can see the keyboards, the latter named. Another difference is that they do not care much breaks the compass as IQ and PALLAS, as in "Envy" following a lyric line and characteristic bands of metal bands with female vocals (but not enough to sound as heavy) where the piano serves as a "bed" for Christina's voice. "Gluttony" led by guitars and modern synthesizer. "Lust" follows and orchestra from the keyboard past the vocal accompanied by the boys. The beautiful "Anger," a symphonic ballad / acoustic, dissonant, his may resemble well the introduction of Roudabout (but I was wrong) where the coral is very timely. "Pride" shows the quality of Christina as a performer with his Solvej that becomes important in this music. In general "Seven" shows a new approach to neo-prog aiming for the melodies that the metrics, which usually makes the style very derivative and criticized, it seems to the smallest details, and be dedicated to the great big symphonic medallions.Uma requested the band is your dvd shows that Christina is still better on vocals-live
