Album Review

This is the second of Magna Carta's one-time-only groupings and the second to feature bassist Tony Levin. Fortunately for all concerned, it's light years beyond Black Light Syndrome, which paired Levin with guitarist Steve Stevens and drummer Terry Bozzio in an ill-conceived and poorly executed set of improvisations. There is one such impromptu excursion here, the concluding 28-minute "Three Minute Warning," but even it holds up favorably by comparison. But it's the rest of the tunes here that showcase the versatility of Dream Theater members John Petrucci and Mike Portnoy and Dregs keyboardist Jordan Rudess. They fit the fusion/prog rock tag, with plenty of chopsmanship on display, but also with some allegiance to melody and restraint. Not likely to get any radio play, but then that wasn't the point of the session.

Customer Reviews

A brilliant explosion of emotion and adrenaline

I reckon the album cover says it all. I had to listed to this album about 5 times to adjust my brain to it's intensity. My friends, it is well worth it. It gets better every time I hear it. I had never heard of these guys before (from the Dream Theatre band). When I purchased it on the recomendation of a saintly store attendant, it was a revalation. If you like your progressive rock intense and powerful, then this is for you. There are some really beautiful moments too - some of the most touching music riffs ever laid down. Make no mistake, this album is a veritable symphony of rapturous transcendence. It changed me and affected my musical tast/palat in a profound way - like no other album has ever done. WARNING: listening to this album may require practise. As the album cover (back) says "...not for the musically faint-hearted".

Awesome Instrumental Music

This is really awesome stuff. They're all extremely talented. The drummer, guitarist and keyboardist are from Dream Theater and the other band member is from the legendary progressive rock band King Crimson. I might be going too far but their music is probably better than most of Dream Theater albums. That's how good it is. It's the perfect fusion of jazz and metal music.
