Magenta - We Are Legend album review
Welcome return for the veteran Welsh prog band Magenta
It feels as if Magenta have been on the back-burner, and the back foot, since 2013’s The Twenty Seven Club. Prolific main man Rob Reed has been busy with his Sanctuary project, channelling his all-time hero Mike Oldfield on two intricate, well-received records. Before that there was his all-star Kompendium project, and who could forget his supergroup, Kiama? (Well, most of us, probably.) In issue 75 of Prog, Reed revealed how he struggled with writer’s block when it came to material for Magenta, and of course Christina Booth’s treatment for her well-publicised health problems had to take priority over music.
