Album Review

Along with such bands as Marillion, prog rock/mainstream popsters Magnum enjoy widespread success in their native homeland (the U.K.), but remain virtually unknown Stateside. Regardless, Magnum still enjoys a solid fan base back throughout the rest of the world (especially with prog metal experiencing a bit of a resurgence circa the early 21st century), as evidenced by their 2008 double-disc set, Wings of Heaven Live. With countless classic rock bands performing their best known album in its entirety nowadays, Magnum was the latest one to take the plunge, performing their most commercially successful release to date — 1988's Wings of Heaven — front to back, during a week-long U.K. tour in late 2007. But the 19-track set goes beyond just the aforementioned album, as the first disc is comprised of renditions of favorites from other albums, including the slightly Queen-ish opener "When We Were Younger," as well as the Zep-like "Out of the Shadows." The Wings of Heaven portion of the set sees faithful readings of the Magnum classics — many of which reflect the mainstream rock radio sounds of the era (Survivor, Journey, Van Halen, etc.), especially such tracks as "Days of No Trust" and "Start Talking Love."

Biography

Formed: 1975 in Birmingham, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s

Hard rockers Magnum got their start in Birmingham, England, in the mid-'70s. The band's first album, Kingdom of Madness, came out in 1978, right in the midst of the punk rock musical revolution. That timing may be one factor contributing to the band's unknown status. Magnum II was released in 1979. After extensive gigging, the group released the live album Marauder in 1980, and Chase the Dragon came two years later. Going back to their "album a year" pace, The Eleventh Hour was released in 1983....
