The Truth
4 stars This was an excellent debut album which I got three years after its release. Magic Pie is the first Norweigan rock band I'd ever heard, (let alone prog rock band,) and they're also the best Norweigan rock band I've ever heard, (although I guess that fact doesn't really matter.) This excellant albums first track is the epic Change which contains many of the basic elements of symphonic prog yet sounds almost like John Petrucci of Dream Theater is at the guitar at times. The title track starts off with beautiful vocals that eventually turn into another rocky symphonic prog song. Full Circle Poetry is my favorite song on the album with it's nice guitar riff and superb vocal performance. Without Knowing Why has a nice intro but after awhile it gets kind of boring as does Illusion and Reality but it finishes off nicely with the excellent track Dream Vision. A very nice debut by a band that has a lot of potential! I hope they bring out more than two albums!
