Fantastic 1st Class Prog Rock,
This review is from: Motions of Desire (Audio CD)
I came across this band by chance, found their web site read about them listened to some samples from their site...and I was hooked.
If you love Prog Rock in any capacity you will love this band. They are a great mix of fantastic musicianship and no 'one' instrument tends to dominate the theme of songs. Many prog bands tend to be either guitar or keyboard bias, these guys bring out the best in song writing with all instruments playing their part. It can be quite raunchy, a bit jazzy, but basically good genuine alround Progressive Rock.
It would be easy to draw comparisons with Flower Kings, Spocks Beard, Arena, Saga etc etc but listen to this album for what it is and not how it 'may sound a bit' like some other band. It is Magic Pie and they have served up one hell of a major slice of music that quite frankly puts much of my music collection into the shade.
Your CD collection is crying out for this bands CD to join them and to show that small bands on small labels can deliver a great album.
