I have to admit, this is my favorite Magnum album. To me, it exemplifies everything Magnum had set out to do before their drop into 'pop rock' in the eighties. But I also know that this was not a very successful album for them- which kind of makes sense.
On this album Magnum were producing themselves, and so had a lot of creative freedom. This shows through quite clearly as there is a lot of 'arty' stuff here- this is truly progrssive rock. The music much more experimental than 'Chase the Dragon' and it's predecessors, but with the hard rock edge that is the Magnum sound.
The first half of the album is probably the best, with the synth-laden 'The Prize' providing a powerful opening number. 'The Great Disaster' is a great energetic track in the style of 'The Battle' with some great musicianship involved. 'The Word' is nice relief from all this, showing that Magnum could still write a ballad without losing their hard sound. 'So Far Away' is just weird- either you like it or you don't.
However, this does not fit everyone's tastes and I'm aware of this. Most of the material made after this album is nowhere near as hard or progressive as this, yet it was the bands most popular era. Thus, fans of the earlier Magnum material will be most likely to like this. Others will almost certainly hate it.

After the success of 1982's Chase The Dragon, Magnum could be forgiven for thinking that the big time was just around the corner. However, The Eleventh Hour represents one of the most difficult periods the band would ever have to endure.

What's a shame is that this, Magnums fourth studio effort is a good, solid record. The first four tracks, The Prize, Breakdown, Vicious Companions and The Great Disaster, get the album of to a flying start and show guitarist/songwriter Tony Clarkin becoming more adept at creating good songs of a shorter length. However, with the exception of the excellent One Night Of Passion and the anthemic The Word, The Eleventh Hour runs out of steam a little. All in all though, Magnum managed to create a follow up to the superb Chase The Dragon that more than holds its own, and with some more inspired cover artwork by Rodney Matthews, The Eleventh Hour is a decent package.

Magnum's major problem that year was a lack of marketing muscle from the record label and also being forced to self produce the music, for cost cutting purposes. Couple this up with the end of The New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement in which the band had been carelessly pigeonholed, and the albums lack of major league success isn't so much of a mystery. However, good times were only a couple of years away, and Magnum would never sound the same again. In the meantime, sit back, relax and enjoy one of the bands more forgotten efforts. A guilty pleasure indeed.

This was always viewed, and I think unfairly as an inferior album to 'Chase the Dragon'.

To me it was the more consistent and stronger of the two and having purchased both re-mastered albums recently, I think it has certainly stood the test of time better than `Chase'.

There is a definite timelessness to the Eleventh Hour with some great tracks including `The Word', a wonderful Magnum ballad up there with their best.

The extras also make this a great purchase.

My journey with Magnum continues,having started at the beginning and working my way chronilogically thru the bands works,i find myself here with i believe their 4th studio disc.

Unlike the others,this is not a instant fix,enjoyable immediately,its not quite as upbeat as the earlier studio discs and in places quite dark.

The production is quite dated and thin(especially the drum sound) and this grates,that being said there are still some fine moments, the ist four tracks are pretty good as is 'the road to paradise'.

Unlike the earlier albums ,you dont quite get the Styx/Kansas influences,the disc is at times wrapped in some quintessential english whimsy,with acoustic guitar quaintly strumming away,excellent stuff,of course QUEEN and mid 70's URIAH HEEP still resonate.

Bonus tracks are excellent especially the fridsy rock show session,booklet as ever superb and informative.

While this album will never be remembered as highly as 'Chase..' or 'On a Storytellers...' it is still a blinding collection of songs. The difference is that they take a while to mature. Magnum were dabbling in some full-on prog and the first 5 songs attest to that. Prize isn't as good an opener as Soldier... or How Far... but it holds it's own. What is really strange is what follows: Breakdown suddenly changes the mood to one of melancholy and lethargy, although it is a great little slow-burner. The following 3 tracks are variations on each other but they all stand out, especially Vicious companions and The Great Disaster.

Favourite tracks are Young and Precious Souls and Road to Paradise - instant classics on an album with few. Nevertheless a great album.
