    Magic Pie - Fragments of the 5th Element (new album out 8/30)

    Wow. No threads about this at all? I mean, I had to stumble onto it while Amazon-surfing.

    The first two songs released sound excellent -- quintessentially Magic Pie with a generous dose of Gentle Giant quirkiness. Definitely sounds like another winner like "King for a Day."





    Looking forward to the rest of it!

    I'm also really shocked that this close to the release date nothing has been mentioned about this. I didn't know about it.

    When people invite you into their homes, feed and lodge you, and show you wonderful Norwegian hospitality, when they make a new record, you buy it (albeit loving the music makes it easier).

    Now that you have weighted in Geezer, I can rest easy and look forward to the release..

    King For A Day was an unapologetic monster. Can't wait to hear the rest of the new album - especially the epic. Of course, the epic.

    Rich Mouser has these guys sounding like world-beaters too.

    Three cheers for Magic Pie!!!

    And I bought the full album and it's just as good. "The Hedonist" is a solid 20-minute epic. I'll warrant this album doesn't feel as meaty as "King for a Day" but I've enjoyed both listens I've had to the full album so far.
