3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Martyn VINE VOICE on 4 Aug. 2008
Format: Audio CD
This is a very good album from a band which got better with every release.

Having stepped up from their first two indie-lite albums, this album, along with Hello June Fool, shows a maturity of songwriting, msicianship and production that few bands achieve.

The album's groovy feel and rhthyms have caused some to label it 'trip-hop', which may present too much of a 'dancy' image in your mind, but that influence is their alongside the indie-psychedelic ones.

Mary Lorson's voice has filled out and taken on more character by this time, which is another strength.

I dig this CD out and play it on a regular basis, and if you get it i hope you'll do the same.

Many of the best discoveries come by accident and this is how I came across Madder Rose. If a band are known by the company they keep then the sideways acknowledgment in the sleeve notes to Tanya Donelly only increased the anticipation. And well worth it it was too. This is an incredibly strong album with no apparent weak tracks. 'Hung Up In You' and 'Don Greene' are the soulful highlights, Mary Lorson's vocal gently conveying the pain of an unrequited love. Even the monologued 'Peter and Victor' is given a strange ethereal quality by the drifting backing vocals. A brilliant discovery. If Throwing Muses, Belly, 10,000 Maniacs fill your collection then Madder Rose should be added if they re not already there.

Sexy, Smoky....a great listening experience 5 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For those that haven't heard of this band and like women singers like Fiona Apple or Heather Nova, this group has a pinache that makes their sound one of the best on the market, yet one of the ones common folk won't hear about. Mary Lorson has quite a voice, and the notes she can reach will rival that of any other woman you've heard. The first track "My Star" has this mysterious sounding percussion and, coupled with Mary's voice, will hook you for the rest of the disc. All of the music is quite mellow and laid back, very well played and well sung. An album everyone should own!

Buy this album now! 24 May 2006
By Joshua Burnett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As I type this review, Tragic Magic can be had used through Amazon for only 1 cent. That's a pretty amazing deal, considering what a great album it is. Madder Rose was one of the most criminally under-appreciated bands of the 1990s, and this may be their best album. On Tragic Magic, Madder Rose added elements of trip-hop to their already great indie pop sound. Lots of bands stumbled when they tried to do that, but here, it works magically. Highlights include "(She's A) Satellite" and "Hung Up In You."
Great voice is not enough 17 Jun. 2012
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lead singer Mary Lorson does indeed have a great voice. She's one of those vocalists who can sing an achingly sweet tune or change tempos and do an uptempo rocker. That said, I didn't find this album nearly as engaging as their previous effort, "Panic On." Unlike that fine album, there wasn't the same sense of wonder or plethora of songs with tuneful majesty to be found on this album. That said, this is still a worthwhile listen. If you enjoyed "Panic On" you may like this CD too. With Lorson's distinctive vocals, and the guitars in the band, Madder Rose was sometimes compared to the Cranberries. That's not a bad comparison, but Madder Rose's music wasn't quite as loud or stadium rock-ish, leaning more towards atmospheric song structures. One reviewer mentioned "trip-hop" but I don't really hear that on here. Whatever the sub-genre, this was a band that should be heard by more listeners.
