5.0 classicSowilei | June 10th 12

Troubling. deconstruction of everything known before, in order to recreate something pure. That's the story
of Kobaia: a few persons in dire straits decide to leave Earth for a better world, Kobaia. Very symbolic. Magma
says fuck to pop and average music, to prefer something nobler and higher, completely new. Inside the vinyls
jacket, the lyrical summary says that by listening to the music, you can be able to follow the trip of the
spacemen. Mean expressive music. that's true. It's a trip from an ancient world to an other new one.
Something puzzling is the following point: It's seems that the melodies are already known when you hear it
for the first time(especially with Aina. Like if Magma didn't invent their songs: they found them, already being
here, somewhere, for the very beginning. Magma is a part of yourself, as much as you're a part of the world.

4.0 excellentDavid Skattebo | July 21st 09

Gosh, this is strange! This is probably the pinnacle of zany, quirky, epic prog. The band has an epic sci fi concept that Claudio Sanchez could only dream of writing and to up the pretense, the entire album is in a foreign language invented by the drummer! These dudes mix prog, jazz, krautrock, marching band music, and 20th century classical and it owns! Only thing is, it's long as hell.
