December 1973 - Best No. 65 - Review of MDK

Magma is really something else. It is difficult to be precise because Magma abolishes all our habits: more labels, more comparisons possible. The music of Vander and his fellow night explodes fiercely in its originality. Another thing ... It seems to come of elsewhere, but we can not reach whether the choirs and the songs from beyond the world from a cold and distant planet or if they awaken in us, deep within us themselves, the echoes of who knows what eternal rites. Finally, it fails to grasp the art of Magma by images.

Rhythms dry, often quaternary responses, a complex lyrical composition entirely due to Vander takes you far from the magic of these songs, incantations that extend the optical side 1 of "1001 ° centigrade, that is say they still reinforce the novelty of Magma and is one of the most current rock pioneers. As for music, she fiercely chanting the chorus: low buzzing, relentless drums, brass swirling. It is worth noting the excellent performance of Claude Olmos whose undulating guitar gives the whole dimension unreal. It's really fantastic.

Magma, once again, opened in our sphere of boredom and smoke, the breach of the dream. So that is a great disc to rhyme almost nothing compared to what it offers beyond. The work ...
