4 stars After the cascade of euphoric reviews (only a certain Brian is a naughty boy..), I decided to order this album from the Norwegian band Magic Pie. To me this bandname sounds as a Sixties psychedelic group but it's really 2005. During the first track (20 minutes)I got more and more excited, what a good musicians and what a varied and dynamic progrock! At some moments they sound a bit polished but in general I'm delighted about Magic Pie. The other compositions (between 3 and 15 minutes) blew me away: the one moment you hear mellow music with acoustic guitar, the other moment the climate is bombastic with propulsive heavy guitar riffs and swirling organplay. Their alternating and powerful music evokes Yes, Gentle Giant, Kansas, Genesis, Pink Floyd and Deep Purple but in my opinion Magic Pie is far from a derivative!

IF YOU LIKE DYNAMIC AND VARIED PROGROCK, THIS ONE IS YOURS, A SPLENDID DEBUT EFFORT!!
