4 stars This is easily Magenta's best album for a progressive rock fan, and right up there with Seven as a great starting place for their catalog of music. With three mammoth tracks, that alone should have most of us excited. Well, Magenta delivers an excellent performance on all fronts. Superb musicianship support these excellent compositions, along with sound samples and some well placed guitar solos with a Floydian vibe. It is clear that they put polish into these tracks. Christina Booth has an addictive quality to her vocal performance. She always draws me in on every album, and We Are Legend is no different. From the perfect pitch, to the exceptional phrasing, I always love the way she sings. The 26 minute Trojan starts things off, and I have no complaints with Colours or Legend. It is a must have album for a Progressive Rock fan. 4.5 stars.

4 stars UK band MAGENTA has been among the more popular of the relatively recent progressive rock bands ever since they appeared with "Revolutions" back in 2001. So far they have more than a dozen of studio and live albums to their name. "We Are Legend" is their most recent studio album, and was released in the spring of 2017.

Just about anyone with an interest in well made, sophisticated yet also accessible progressive rock in general and perhaps even more so those with a passion for the symphonic oriented varieties of this style should already be well aware of the UK band Magenta and their take on that particular aspect of the genre. "We Are Legend" is a quality example of that kind of progressive rock, and a production that warrants a check by those who tend to fancy music of this nature ? a high-quality CD of modern symphonic progressive rock and one that should have a broad general appeal.
