Magma / H.R. Giger Related

1979 Original Featuring H.R. Giger Artwork, With Smaller Pressing Ring. Still In Shrink, With Original Paper "Prodcue" Bag Inner Sleeve. Glossy Vinyl. Jacket Has Small Crease At Top Left Cornber And DIng To Bottom Left. “While Drummer Christian Vander Had Maintained General Leadership Of The Band Since The Early '70s, This New Phase Of Magma Could Almost Be Considered A Vander Solo Project. His Interest In Funk, R&B, Gospel, And Pop Would Come To The Fore, And Similar To Many Of His Prog Rock And Jazz Fusion Peers, He Would Mold The Band's Sound Into Something With Crossover Appeal. It Is One Of The Most Exciting And Certainly One Of The Most Accessible Albums. "The Last Seven Minutes" Is Burning Zeuhl-Funk, With Some Of Vander's Most Explosive Drumming On Record. Although They Weren't Singing About Interplanetary War Anymore (But Were Singing In "Kobaian"), The Bandmembers Never Lost Their Intensity. This Is Getting Closer To Hard-Edged Fusion À La Groups Such As Mahavishnu Orchestra And Return To Forever, But Nothing That Features Vander's Idiosyncratic Wail Is Going To Sound Derivative. Similarly, "Dondaï" Might Be A Pleasant, Unaffecting Funk Ballad From Anyone Else, But From Magma It Sounds At Once Magical And Silly. In Truth, This Is Calm By Magma's Standards, And For A While The Group Actually Seemed Willing To Present Relatively Straightforward Music.” Dominique Leone, AMG.
