First listen under my belt.

Magnum have been my #1 band since 1988......

Love almost everything TC has ever written, from KOM/MII in the 70s to the mighty Wings Of Heaven in '88 to GLA/Sleepwalking in the 90s to Visitation/13th Day/Shadow Garden in more recent years...............

The Serpent Rings?

THE SERPENT F'IN BREAKS THE DOOR DOWN!!

What an absolutely, utterly, all round, top to bottom SUBLIME album.

I am 111% sure that I am going to be playing this non-stop for weeks.

Honestly, I wouldn't know where to begin with a proper review. I hear every era of Magnum. I hear Status Quo (really), Supertramp, Trans Siberian Orchestra, Queen, Rush... I hear Tony Clarkin being a genius, and Bob Catley flipping a finger or two at those who say he has lost his voice. If this is losing your voice, I pray he never finds it. Studio tricks maybe, but those can't take away or add to the fact that NO-ONE finds the heart of a song like Bob.

It amazes me to be able to say it, but in 2020 - FORTY EIGHT YEARS AFTER THEY FORMED IN 1972 - Magnum may well have just released their best ever album.
