Artist: Magellan
Title: Impossible Figures
Genre: Rock/Progressive, Metal
Label: Inside Out/

What a great name for a group, Magellan, and what stunning, colorful, thought provoking artwork for an album cover. So what is inside you say? There is more to this band than a name and images...oh yes, so much more. I am very impressed with this group's musical endeavors. They personify the word progressive.

The Gardner brothers Trent (keyboards, vocals) and Wayne (bass, guitar, vocals), are the clock that makes Magellan tick. They get a special hand this time around with their new album Impossible Figures from musical genius Robert Berry, Jeff Curtis with the brass arrangements, and guest musician Jason Gianna on drums, other than that, it's the world of the Gardner's brought to you through musical soundscapes that challenge and mesmerize you in each track.

This kind of music I have to listen to over and over again to gather my thoughts, there is just so much going on its mind-boggling at times. I know I say that frequently about prog-rock but that is commonplace when it comes to taking in this type of music. When you think about two men putting together their talents to come up with this awesome knock out sound, it really blows your mind. "Killer of Hope" is a testament to their worthiness as world-class musicians and writers of complex compositions. The catch all in their music is the way it changes so quickly. Trent will play a beautifully classical passage on his keyboards, quickly it shifts to Wayne banging out sweeping and crushing blows from his six-string, then suddenly it all comes together creating a supernova of musical bliss. It is like watching a volcano flowing from far away, it looks like its moving slow, then you find yourself standing right at the edge of the opening at the top of the mountain were the explosion is forcing out the hot molten lava from the center of the earth incredibly fast. That is what Magellan's music is like. Now that is powerful.

Does this sound exciting? Is it something you think that you would like? If you can envision music sounding like this then you will get off on this album time after time, I certainly did. Like progressive rock? This band is one of very best in the world so get this CD.
