3 stars Latest release to date is Magellan's seventh studio album from 2007 named Innocent god, well is a little diffrent this time then on past works. The music on this album is simpler then usual in Magellan's music, the instrumental passages don't have so much space this time, no more longer and great interplays between musicians, only some moddy pieces with atmosphere but keeping the progressive elements more or less in places. Innocent god is not a bad album , as many said , is diffrent then the predecesor and even mellower in places, the heavy/neo /symphonic ingredients are almost gone here, living space to amuch more calm sound as whole with some exceptions of course like the instrumental Sea of detail, the best piece from here without doubt, is heavy with dark atmosphere and good musicianship, another worthy one is Found a mid tempo piece with some intristing lyrics and nice interplays between musicians, the rest of the pieces are only ok, nothing realy great as on more recent albums like Impossible figures, their best work of this decade and far from the greatness of Impending ascension. Slow burn is a hard rock number with some keys on background not quite typical for Magellan but pleasent anyway. So, this must be their weakest work for sure, but not bad, some good moments here and there makes me rounded up from 2.5 to 3, because I like Magellan's music and because they have an unique manner of composing.
