5 stars First of all: Get the instrumental version. If you really want to get the essence of this album, go and chase for it. It is worth the effort. It is not that the singer blows it up, Christine has lots of followers, but the composition here needs no gimmicks or distractions for the human listeners. SEVEN is an impressive collection of themes that is better listened raw. I don't think anyone was thinking on sins, demons, angels or other religious paraphernalia when assembling the music that was flowing out of heads. This is plain music, seven gorgeous compositions, that's all. Magenta uses the well-known shameless pile of sounds of earlier prog heroes as the instruments in a symphonic orchestra and combine them perfectly with their own stuff to raise one of the finest prog works ever. I'm pretty sure that no prog heroes would complaint, they rather should be Proud for the borrow of their sounds, and they would probably be Envious too for these compositions not being their own creations, sure they will swallow them with Gluttony; if anything, they should be ashamed for being Sloth and Greedy when they left the good track to collect money out of fame; anyway, Oh prog-gods, don't get Anger, you know that we, your musical slaves, have forgiven you for that much you gave us, just sit back in your Olympic armchairs, relax and feed your Lust with this magnus opera. Not all is yours. This seven are ours.
