Prog Reviewer
3 stars Evidently, Magenta were perturbed by the mixed reception Home received, because Metamorphosis finds them retreating to more traditionally proggy territory. In fact, they cram on not one but two songs of over twenty minutes, as though going out of their way to stress their prog credentials. It's a pleasant enough disc, but to be honest it feels like the band are going through the motions, trotting out a bunch of well-worn prog motifs and jamming on them until they hit the 20 minute mark. The lyrical direction is mildly darker than expected, but otherwise this is good but rather typical neo-prog material which doesn't do anything particularly special.
Warthur | 3/5 |
