Prog Reviewer
3 stars Magic Pie's Motions of Desire sees the band pull off the obvious motifs of various classic prog acts of the past without quite managing to build anything new and innovative on that foundation. There'll be a Yes bit here, a Kansas bit there, a Gentle Giant bit over there with the vocal harmonies, but all these disparate parts only manage to demonstrate that the band can pull off the technical aspects of these bands' playing without convincing me that they've really mastered the relevant compositional approaches, or indeed that they have developed an interesting compositional approach of their own. A fun listen but I feel it's a rather shallow experience.
