4 stars If at first you don't succeed try,try again. That's pretty much my motto with Magma, it took several attempts before I was able to enjoy this band and genre and it all started with Udu Wudu. While rhythm has always been an important part of Magmas music Udu Wudu sees them branching out a bit while still subtly retaining some of their classic elements which start to disappear after this album. The title track offers up some of the best vocal melodies heard on any other Magma album along with some great piano and bass lines. This album is filled to the brim with great throbbing bass lines which really come to a head on the classic track De Futura. Musically this might be Magmas most accessible album and a great starting place for anyone who is interested in this band but you must keep in mind that this album is kind of a transitional one for the band and does not have too much in common with their earlier releases.

Glimmung | 4/5 |
