5 stars My personal history with this album:

This album is special. The first time I listened to it (my first encounter with magma) I couldn`t make it to the 3rd song, I was shocked.... I remember that I thought: "Holly ****! how can someone like this ****?" And then I started laughing.....

Two weeks later I saw magma`s history on internet, about koba´an, christian vander... and I thought that the fact that the guy is a visionary (he made his own language for gods sake) was cool, so I listened MDK again, and complete. I have to admit that I didn`t LIKE it, but this time I thought it was ok... different than other things I`ve listened so far.

Now, the third time I listened to it (a good friend of mine gave me the discography) I started liking it,, and now when I listen to it I totally love it.

and here`s why:

Magma`s MDK has 7 tracks, but it is only one big big song. And it is opera!, I finnaly understood, that it is opera. A story, a full story is being told and the music goes with that story. The musicians are incredible, vander is a drum god. That one big song is amazing, its parts never repeat, some parts can be heard on several states of the song, though... but it is on purpose....

It is not rock... not pop... not punk.... it`s like nothing you`ve heard before... This is zehul.... and it`s here for good.

Five stars, mr vander... may the force be with magma!
