4.0 out of 5 stars Keyboards are us. 20 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
Strange one this, but that's not a bad thing at all, it just means you've got to be in a strange mood to listen to it. Gillan(the band)to me have always been a progressive rock band, a bit of an oddity, but a good oddity!
"What's the matter" kicks off this record, a hard rocker in the "Roller" mode (from Mr Universe!)which is no bad thing at all, Next up "Bluesy blue sea" a kind of strange dreamy type song, I saw em' live twice on this tour and the song works perfectly in that environment, not that it doesn't here it's just that in my opinion LIVE is where it really shines. I'm not gonna go through every track with ya, cause at the end of the day it's just my opinion AND.....AND it's gonna be boring for me, and for you too. Colin Towns(Keyboards)is king on this release, which is a slight shame because some of the tracks could have benefited from more guitar from Mr Gers(who?)(Iron Maiden anyone?)"Caught in a trap" is a horrible track(hey it's my review, not yours!)"Long gone" is pleasant enough, "Driving me wild" has the weirdest piano/keyboard solo i'd heard for quite a while, Colin Towns co wrote most of this record and deserves some credit where it's due. I believe in the past Mr Towns has brought to the table a rather large portion of classics for Mr Gillan to lend his silver throat to and in my opinion(and it's just an opinion)Mr Towns has delivered the goods yet again, maybe more so than the other Gillan records, because maybe, just maybe, the writing well was running a little dry with the other members of the band? "Demon driver" is superb, progressive rock at it's best, such imagination, it sounds just like a movie soundtrack to me, this is where Colin Towns shines brightest, GREAT STUFF.(OK,OK i've mentioned most of the tracks so I may as well carry on!

5.0 out of 5 stars underrated band 1 Jun 2011
By W Butler - Published on
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid rocker all the way 25 Jun 2000
By David K. Barrett - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This is a metal release by Gillan. Do not confuse this with the pre Mr. Universe stuff. Janick Gers of Iron Maiden starts the proceedings with a fast one called "Whats The Matter" and then cruises into a monumental Sabbath/Zeppelin esque riff on "Bluesy Blue Sea". Gillan sounds fantastic, if you liked "Born Again" with Sabbath, or NWOBHM you will love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars end of the line ? 18 Mar 2008
By znodog - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
People seem to think that Ian crashed and burned here after a good run of hard rockin'releases,but thats not true at all. On this one he settles down a little. But with the aid of Jannick Gers he cranks out another quality hard rock album. The production is slick and the tunes are not as brash as the previous arena anthems. But this is a rewarding listen if you just leave it on and listen to the man sing. Its still heavy even though this marks a return to more versatile set list.One of the better Gillan albums. If you have a Gillan collection you need this one.4 stars instead of 5 for changing directions again, and keeping fans confused.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Voice of Rock 6 Jan 2012
By JPH - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Gillan's voice is in top form on this album. Janick Gers playing is more in support of the songs than a collection of "look at me" stylings of his predecessor. A great album of an eclectic, very well performed material.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jannick Gers' debut 25 Feb 2011
By Vince Hamer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
A Kerrang! review from the day described Jannick as a Blackmore clone. Sure, you can tie a string between them but most importantly this release has Colin Towns taking more control than previous Gillan releases. Maiden's Fear of the Dark has more of what he can really do but here, he plays more for the song. "What's the Matter" and "Purple Sky" has florishes but that's the critcism! Not enough Jannick. And it's slicker in production. Good for the collection but not essential.
