I have been really back into Kayo Dot after the modern band championship poll, and am voting for Choirs of the Eye over K.A.  Much as I like K.A., I do find CotE a better and more satisfying album.  K.A. I find lacking, cliche for a Magma fan (quite formulaic), and even quite cliche for a Prog fan generally.  I finding it lacking in textures, nuance and, I don't usually this word for music, but lacking in emotion or mood, and rather dull -- feels. Unlike most, I like the "K.A II" track the most.  Of modern Magma albums, I prefer E-Re by a wide margin, partially because of Christian Vander's exuberance in the "Hhai" and related part.

While I can understand the excitement of K.A.'s arrival, taken on it's own, it is to me, to use a word many hate, Magma's most overrated studio album.

Really tough. I'm going to have to say Remedy Lane, but Frances the Mute is very very close.

In full agreement with this. I find it a complete mystery that K.A actually is the highest rated, and the second most rated Magma studioalbum on PA. I have a hard time listening all the way through the third part, which has a kind of glorious finale of a christian rock opera/musical (of unaturally high quality) feel to it. Still the second best album of this lot, no doubt.

No, I like it just fine myself. The complete mystery is that its more popular and higher rated than the (imo) far superior Koba´a, 1001░ centigrades, K÷hntark÷sz and also higher rated than Mekan´k Destrukt´w Kommand÷h. K.A is not in my top ten of the Magma albums I own.

^ I rephrase then, I find a mystery why you can't compute that others might like K.A more than Kobaia, MDK and others Magma albums. Surely you must know that tastes vary.

Don't get too hung up on the "mystery" part. I could write that its a complete mystery to me that someone would want pineapple on their pizza too. It doesn't mean sit and think about it while trying to solve it as a some kind of puzzle all day long. I know tastes vary, but its easier to understand that some prefer neoprog and some are into avantprog and only rarely do they enjoy the same artists. Its different with a band I have to assume that "we" all love. To me K.A is more of less to MDK what Present is to Pawn Hearts . As in a solid comeback and nothing to be ashamed of. But among their best?

^ I know it's not literally a mistery, which is why it's more effective as a figure of speech. It's quite derogatory, you know.
