4 stars I really should get more albums by Magma.

This LP was the second of the two Magma albums I found way back in the seventies (the other being "Üdü Ẁüdü"), and the better of the two.

The music is dark, and almost droning. But at the same time, there are elements of fusion that call up some of the best of the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Compositionally, the four pieces are a bit repetitious, but Christian Vander's powerful and energetic drumming keeps the songs from becoming boring.

I wouldn't recommend Magma for the non-adventurous listeners out there, but if you want your music to send you on a journey, they are certainly something to try.

Evolver | 4/5 |
