4 stars I like this record! Magenta is a very 'fresh' band with a female voice and excellent musicians and composers. This record is strongly influenced by Genesis, Yes, King Crimson and mainly by the '70 progressive rock scene. Every track is surrounded by mello, moog, piano and by the sweet voice (but maybe too childish) of Christina. The two guitar player are great as well and strongly influenced by Steve Howe and Dave Gilmour; also the drummer in great and sometimes it remindms me of Neil Peart but most of the time he can be simple as the Magenta music requires. The record has a very 'fresh' sound and i have to admit that 'Gluttony' is one of the most beautiful prog-song in the last 20 years. By the way, sometimes, the record gets too close to some Tori Amos records sound, and quite simple in the harmonic enveloping. I think that 'Seven' is one of the best album you can listen to get in touch with progressive rock music, and i really think this record could hit the charts as well (i don't know if it did at that time, but i'm sure it could). In the end i think that Magenta is one of the best neo-progressive band in the last years, and they deserve a great attention by the progressive world.
