4 stars Magenta is back in good shape after some unintristring previous album Home, who was little to soft, but this time thay are back delivering good moments like on Seven for instance. Methamorphosis from 2008 is another worthy album from their catalogue, where symphonic grandeur is melted almost perfectly with neo prog elements. Only 4 pieces this album has, 2 of them with an epic status, the best being the title track , nearly 25 min of pure magic. Everything went ok here, the arrangements are more then great, each musician being sure of his instrument and creating something truly enjoyble. The beautiful voice of Christina Booth gives to the album a great atmosphere and pleasent listning. Methamsphosis maybe is not as great as Seven, to me their best for sure so far, but has plenty of complex parts, great musicianship and a damn great sound that will please most of the neo/symphonic fans. Great guitar chops dueling with keybords, a great drumer in the mix, all of these make me give 4 star to this album, and for sure is no less then great. I really like it from start to finish.
