Editorial Reviews

Limited two disc (CD + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) edition of the Prog/Art Rock band's 2009 release including a bonus DVD that contains an hour long testimonial to the intensity of the work during its recording. . Em‰hnt‰htt-R‚ is an intimate epic, an occult stride forward, a quest for the sublime. Initiated in 1975, its composition beholds its whole fulfillment after more than three decades. It is the testimony of an unwaveringly timeless inspiration, of which the expectant present asserts itself beyond history. Connecting wide and contrasted scenes, it sets its coherence within its very dynamics, playing with chiaroscuro, between choral splendor, operatic jubilation and hurricane of spirits beyond graves. As much a seraphic liturgy as it is a telluric opera, Em‰hnt‰htt-R‚ comes as the final closure to a second trilogy, following upon that of Theusz Hamtaahk, in Christian Vander's corpus. This is a music reaching out from a time before man time.

I'm not going to begin to describe Magma's music to the uninitiated. It is NOT music for everyone (my wife, for example, thinks they sound like Manhattan Transfer on acid). Read the amazon.com reviews of their 1973 album, Mekanik Destruktiw Kommandoh(their best in my opinion, though I won't argue with fans of 1974's Kohntarkosz), to get a sense of what Magma's music is like. Instead I'll address this review to Magma fans, and anybody who has been thinking of investigating Zeuhl music. For Magma fans, I'll say that I like this album even better than the last studio album, Kohntarkosz Anteria, and I really like KA. This new album is more melodic and more dynamic than KA, and a little more rocking too. I felt KA to be skewed a little more toward the free-jazz side of Magma. This new album also showcases Christian Vander's drumming more than any studio effort I've heard: it is the best drumming Vander has ever done in the studio. Plus the second half of the album features lots of killer Zeuhl-style growling bass work that was missing on KA. And if you missed KA and so have not heard the re-formed Magma band in the studio yet, let me tell you that this band has the mojo of the original band from the 70s. The lead male singer is not quite Klaus Blasquiz, but he is an awfully good replacement. And Stella Vander sings better than ever. I am going to start recommending Emehntehtt-Re to anybody interested in discovering Zeuhl. By the way, this album--just like KA--is part of the Kohntarkosz triptych, composed in the mid-1970s but not recorded till 2009. Long time fans will recognize "Hhai" from several live albums. The version on this studio album is a little less intense vocally than the live efforts unfortunately, but musically it rocks, fitting in well into the album overall. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece of Avant-Prog April 6, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I'm not going to waste time telling you that Christian Vander's Magma is the greatest musical adventure of our age. Either you've cleared the learning curve of Magma's unique brand of music (a genre called Zeuhl or "celestial music", a combination of funk, soul, gospel, opera, classical choral music and intense jazz fusion) and you know exactly what I mean, or you haven't, and you think I've come from another planet (and in fact, all passionate Magma fans do come from Kobaia...) Magma fans have a tendency to forget that this music is an acquired taste, and marvel at how anyone can hear it and not rocket out of their chairs, eyes glowing. If you're up for the adventure, and ready to change all your ideas about musical genres and their supposedly necessary divisions, there's no better place to start than with this new CD, which consists of some Magma masterpieces, magnificently played and recorded. If you're content with the conventional, however, stay there, make the sign of the cross on your chest, plug your ears with thumbs, and read no further.

No, rather than a typical review in which I, the fan, try to convince you, the imagined non-fan, how musically great Magma is, explaining how they soar to celestial heights and descend into the darkest reaches of the mind in this new release, I'd like to try something different, speaking directly to fellow fans. What I'd like to try is a completely subjective report of what this new composition stirs in my imagination. I think this has not been done enough with Vander's compositions, and hope it motivates a dialog among fans about the meaning and nuances of this wonderfully evocative music.

5.0 out of 5 stars An eternal and MAGnificent album by MAGMA June 16, 2010
By Samar
Format:Audio CD
I totally agree on what has been said in previous reviews regarding the attempt to describe MAGMA's music, but it can be said that this jazz-fusion-outofspacey-rock ensemble has exceeded all my expectations with this new release.

An album that took three decades to composea and record (as it is stated in the inner notes), captures in Magma's unique ghostly - eerie mood a whole mystic and even extra-terrestrial experience, Christian Vander's percussive structures and the album's instrumentation in its whole is as superb as it could ever be, and when the operatic choir and the kobaïan lyrics are added... man, that is something that will definitely make the right hemmisphere of your brain tickle.

For the non-initiated on Magma - A great way to start listening to REAL high quality music
For prog-art-avantgarde rock/jazz fans - An album you MUST HAVE
For MAGMA fans - ILLUMINATION

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't believe they can still do it in 2009 May 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
At long last, Magma completes the trilogy that began with Kohntarkosz in 1974. In 2009 they released Emehntehtt-Re, and I realize there will be some nitpicking, particularly with the absence of Klaus Blasquiz and Jannick Top. But it don't matter, to me it still sounds like Magma, and it's nice to know they can still do it in 2009. In 2004 they released K.A. which was the other installment of this trilogy. Anyways, so many bands you can think of from the 1960s and 1970s reunite and often cut a new album and sound so out of touch and really embarrass themselves big time (that also is the same when they perform live). Like Crosby, Stills & Nash. Or, in the world of prog, Emerson, Lake & Palmer (apparently it was In the Hot Seat that gave Love Beach some serious competition over "worst ELP album"). Too often it's money-driven, playing on the nostalgia of their fan-base, and younger fans who weren't alive (or too young) to see them in their glory days. At least that's not the case with Magma. They prove that you still need to record material every bit as good as the classic material from the 1970s and this 2009 release proves that. And of course, still able to put on great shows.

Anyways, the first two parts of Emehntehtt-Re are rerecordings of material found on their 1975 Live/Hhai album (including the one track only available on the 2-CD reissue), Udu Wudu and Attahk, the stuff originally from the 1975 Live album in studio form for the first time (as far as I can tell). So naturally, that stuff will be familiar to you if you're familiar with those albums. Then starting with the third part, then it's all brand new, showing that Magma still has it. What you're faced with is lots of great jazzy drumming from Christian Vander, plus a great choir.
