Along with Neal Morse Testimony, this is the best prog release of 2003. It's all in magellan vein but with a new musical focus. Killer of Hope is an epic one. The highlights are in the Trent Gardner voice, and in Wayne bass parts!!The best we reached on Late for church, a kansas oriented song!! 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.
Like progressive rock? This band is one of very best in the world so get this CD.

I took a chance on this album because they are carried by InsideOut Music. I was not disappointed. There is great musical talent and impressive song writing. Since I am a huge fan of YES, Genesis, and Spock's Beard, I enjoyed the multiple layers of sound on this CD. I even think that track 9 was meant to be a sort of tribute to Starship Trooper (the ending instrumental is extremely similar--I loved it).

I love epic prog, but if you feel like a break from 15+ minute songs then this might be a good alternative. It certainly is better than the garbage coming out of the radio stations.

I think the statement in one of the previous reviews "doesn't fall prey to long, boring epics with a million ideas like many prog bands" is the exact antithesis to good prog rock (except the boring part, of course). Progressive music is supposed to be full of changes, complexities, different time signatures, instrumentation, etc. Do you know what you get when you remove all of these elements? Just plain rock 'n roll . . . and you can get THAT anywhere. Magellan is one of the many, many, many underexposed bands of this genre, and although Test of Wills is still my favorite Magellan album, this album is well put together, thoughtfully composed and HUGE on talent (I even like the new drummer). Long is good. Complex is good. BOMBAST is very good!

I read the previous reviewer's comments, which I felt were a bit skewed, especially given that it was the only review, and felt it would keep people from listening to the album for themselves. Otherwise, I might not have been drawn to make this review myself.

First of all, while it is true that Magellan isn't a true band in the sense that Dream Theater or Marillion are real bands, nevertheless, the music recorded on these albums is performed by real musicians, with dynamics and tone that are very characteristic of a band that reveres precision and clarity. Second, I will admit that their music lacks a certain raw quality that one generally expects from a progressive metal act, but I think that Magellan aren't quite as metal as they are progressive, which suits me fine.

Their one serious vice is that, just perhaps, their music does sound a little too clinical at times (Not a problem if you have any interest in modern jazz or Twentieth Century music, which Magellan manages to evoke on occasion). However, it's not fair to say that the music has no hook or bite. Their sound is probably closest to Trevor Rabin-era Yes, if you like that sort of thing, and you can hardly say that music wasn't hook-laden or punchy. And their vocalist is quite adequate for what they do. I've heard other neo-prog acts with far less adequate vocalists than this.

Magellan isn't a favourite band of mine (I'm not a huge fan of music that has strong Christian themes in its lyrics), so I won't drag this out. The point is, if you like progressive rock music, and are in the mood for something a bit newer sounding than The Flower Kings, but something a little less edgy than Porcupine Tree, feel free to give this album a try. If that goes well, you might consider giving Test of Wills a try, which has a more live-in-studio-band feel to it. Good luck.
