4 stars Perhaps this is their best effort so far...a mature work, whose definition within a "metal progressive genre" is becoming narrow after a repetitive listen. They are influenced from US Bands like Kansas or Mastermind, but also from the classical excerpts by JETHRO TULL (listen to "Counterpoints") and ELP (listen to "Confessor's Overture")... a couple of "aggressive" musicians, such Gardner brothers (already famous within our preferred "progressive genre"). In particular the track "Halluncination Suite Part 1 - Uppers and Downers" is their best instrumental, with good ambient keyboards and a drum solo as well!!

At the end I can not recommend this work as an original and particular creative work, but it's a true "MAGELLAN trademark", that is a typical US Metal Progressive sound, influenced by such symphonic progressive rock in the vein of ELP. Make your personal choice!!
