4 stars Magma is de Hundin

What can I say about this album, that others haven't said?

Well for a kick off I bought my copy off Ian Curtis (he worked in Rare Records in Manchester) although I didn't know then what he would become.

I've given this 4 stars as It starts well and ends well but some of the tracks in the middle are just OK.

Kohntarkosz is the best live version of this track I've heard (and I've heard a lot of versions) and blows the album version out of the water. This track alone warrants 6 stars. If only they'd remaster it and release it as one track, rather than it being presented as two parts as per the original double LP.

A good place to start if you're curious about Magma, as Kohntarkosz and the edited Mekanik here are excellent.
