3 stars Actually this is the first Magellan's album which I can enjoy in its entirety, and it is their best so far. All previous were rather dull and boring, with only one or two good tracks per each album, and Trent's vocalises can be just annoying. This one is different, and the first track (which is absolute highlight - probably due to Steve Walsh participation) sets a listener in such a great mood that one can easily swallow the rest of the album and enjoy what he hears. It is amazing that Trent Gardner is making absolutely wonderful side projects where (as he mentionned himself) he is using material which is no good for Magellan, and these side projects (Explorers Club, Leonardo) turn out to be much much better than Magellan's outcome. Anyway, "Symphony" deserves 3 maybe 3.5 solid stars, which makes it really good album but not really essential.
