4 stars Despite its short 44-minute length "The Magician Chronicles - part 1" has enough room to present the talents of the Swedish proggers Brighteye Brison, who yet again after their well received "Believers&Deceivers" put out a very good album. The opening 23 minute epic "The Rise of Brighteye Brison" moves smoothly in its transitions, having an overall pretty symphonic feeling. The keyboard and sax maestro Linus Kåse presents many quite fresh sounds and themes and the rest of the band also fills their parts with quite stellar musicianship. A memorable composition both in melody and structure. The other two tracks are also solid but not quite on the masterpiece level of the first track. This album shows once again that those following the legacy of Yes, Genesis and the kind need not to stick on similar soundscapes and tried patterns to retain that wondrous atmosphere found in the 70s classics.
