4 stars This one is the debut album of MAGELLAN, a very interesting 2-man band from the US prog scene and I consider it their best effort so far among their 3 first releases...This is pure hard progressive rock with leanings towards bands like CAIRO (in their keyboard driven parts), KANSAS (especially the vocal lines and melodies) and RUSH (song structure and general atmosphere of the album)...There are also some nice heavy parts of music in this album- almost metal - which make me think (and I think you will agree) that this album is the closest one to the sound of the later excellent Trent Gardner's project THE EXPLORER'S CLUB!...Although my actual rating for MAGELLAN's debut is 7/10 I'll give them a 4-star rating since this one is one level front of their next efforts...Recommended for fans of hard prog like RUSH,ENCHANT and CAIRO...
