This is an absolutely gorgeous album; every track perfect and in the right place. You'll want to listen to it over and over again. It mixes sumptuous vocals, fantastic, intelligent lyrics, beautiful and clever arrangements with gorgeous strings.

My favourite album of 2013. A combination of fantastic vocals, clever instrumentation (and not just for the sake of being clever), and brilliant lyrics.

Dan and Sophia continue to produce music of the highest quality.

It's been 15 years from Ooberman's debut album The Magic Treehouse to the lush, mature, work of The Magic Theatre's latest album. And far from the barnstorming world of stormtroopers, blossoms falling and collapsing igloos is where you'll find Dan & Sophia's latest work, which contemplates life on a grander scale. Following the disappointing debut London Town, the two ex-Ooberman vocalists have seemingly gone back to the drawing board and perfected a fine line in delicate pop music that doesn't need guitars or drums as a primary focus. Here, the instrumentation and arrangements are far more baroque - string quartets, celestes, melodic bass guitar work and the occasional larger ensembles where required.

Restraint is the key and any bombast is musically justified, all topped off with Sophia's distinctive familiar vocals, occasionally multi-tracked for heavenly effect. Thematically it's an exploration of love and hate, from the most minute detail and fleeting moments (example song It Was Glorious is a highlight) to something more (literally universal) with the soaring Cathedrals Of The Mind, a list of mankind's greatest achievments, and a few alarming mis-steps along the way. The cover of Love Is Blue is also a pleasant addition and will warm the cockles of the indiepop fan who enjoys Claudine Longet.

Okay, it's not perfect; the instrumentation (particularly the drums) occasionally sounds a little too clinical, and I would prefer a couple of songs sung by Dan along the way, but it made my list of the best albums of 2013. As a sampler, try the opening track, The Sampler, and see how it grabs you. If you enjoy it, you'll find a lot to love here.

I've been listening to Ooberman since they first came out back in '99 and I adore what they created, their albums are a permanent feature on my generic mp3 player. Every album has moments of poignancy, wonder and joy. The Magic Theatre is Ooberman all grown up, luxurious and decadent. Here's hoping they keep making more!
