Like every Gillan album, Magic is an eclectic bunch of sounds. Every song has its own style. Some are traditional rock cliches like "What's the Matter", a traditional hard-rocking and uptempo album opener, and the "Heaven and Hell"-esque slow gallop of "Bluesy Blue Sea". However, most of the songs are just totally weird! Demon Driver leaps from ominous to urgent to epic, and is a great example of the unconventional songwriting and bold musical experimentation that characterizes this band and this album in particular. "Caught in a Trap" shows Gillan's funkier side but is still a rocking tune and fits well on the album. "Driving me Wild" is a catchy dance-rock song spiked with thrashing metal riffs and inspired keyboard madness. "Living a Lie" is a keyboard dominated prog-rock ballad with some heavy moments as well. "You're So Right" and "Long Gone" are the most overtly poppy songs on the album but are still innovative and unique. Basically I have grown to like every song on this album more over time, which is how I feel about most Gillan albums. Hard to say how it compares to the other albums, they are all great too... but I have to say that every other Gillan album has one or maybe two songs that I skip over, which is not the case with Magic.
