19th Art Rock Show: We Are Legend

Magenta is een progressieve rock band uit Wales die in 1999 werd gevormd door Rob Reed en Christina Reed. De muziek van Magenta is beïnvloed door Yes, maar er zijn ook invloeden van Genesis, Mike Oldfield, Eurythmics en Björk terug te vinden.

Progradar review: “We Are Legend features 3 tracks, opening with the 26-minute Trojan and two 11 minute pieces Colours and Legend. As well as Christina Booth, Rob Reed and guitarist Chris Fry, the album also features new drummer Jiffy Griffiths and long-term live bassist Dan Nelson. (…)

There’s a huge amount of pride in titling your album ‘We Are Legend’ but Magenta deserve to give that name to this excellent release. The longevity of nearly two decades in the business has given them well deserved kudos and they have built on that to give us three songs that inspire and stimulate the listener. This record is a sublime forty-nine minutes of musical bliss and sees Magenta back in the top echelon of progressive rock acts where they deservedly belong.”

Naast Magenta met het album We Are Legend hebben we deze week: Rivendel (The Meaning), Discipline (To Shatter All Accord), Renaissance (Live At Carnegie Hall), Fish (Sunsets On Empire) and Christina (The Light).
