3 stars Magellan's Hundred year flood from 2002 ia another worthy album from this band. I've always had a soft spot for this band since I've discovered them more then 10 years ago. Certanly the Magellan's music is an aquaring taste for some listners and not many embrace their unique sound and manner of composing, Trent Grtner is , at least for me one of the most underrated figuers from prog music. With this album the band optaing for a heavier side of prog music, heavy prog is best I can describe this album, with less symphonic arrangements as on previous album and even less symphonic as next two albums aswell. This is the last album on Magna Carts from next release Impossible figuers the band sign with Inside Out label. Some well known guest appear here like Ina Anderson on flute on the instrumental piece Family Jewels, Tony Levin on bass on last track aswell Robert Berry with George Bellas done some guitar works on the rest. Well this is a fairly decent towards in places great, but I don't think is among their best, in fact Magellan doesn't have weak album, only some of them are more or less atractive to my ears. Still this album worth to be investigated if you are a fan of the band as I am. The instrumental piece is to the best from here, adark atmosphere ambrace the listner where the flute of the charistmatic and unmatched musicin Ian Anderson shine from every angle, very nice mid paced tune with nice passages. The rest of the two are ok, the first one clocking around 35 min divided in 13 small pieces, linket together very nicely. So, 3 stars rounded up to 3.5 because Iike this band and all the labums released across the years.
