3 stars About an year after releasing the Legends CD, Magrathea puts out this EP, that seems to include some tracks that didnīt make to the final cut of that album. The first songs, When Legends Com Alive and Man In The Shade are pure classic Genesis with lots of Tony Banks-like synth tuns and mellotron choir waves. Excellent stuff, specially if youīre into 70īs, Peter Gabriel era Genesis. The remaining tunes are more simple and melodic, but in the same symphonic prog style anyway. And of great quality, if you donīt mind a little lack of originality.

The production is here is a little superior of that on Legends (at least is superior than the copy I own). In fact I ended up liking this EP even more than the original Legends CD. The songwriting is also better, the guitars are more up front and the overall sound is more focused. This english duo worked very well! 3,5 stars for this one.
