MAGNUM – Escape from the Shadow Garden- Live 2014
Recorded on a series of European shows in support of their last studio album, "Escape from the Shadow Garden- Live 2014" is a 12 song showcase of a good cross-section for Magnum’s discography. Melodic rock icons of the UK, you’ll get early material like 1978’s "Kingdom of Madness" and three songs from the 1985 classic "On a Storyteller’s Night" including the extended 10 minute plus rendition of "How Far Jerusalem" beyond the current album’s "Live ‘til You Die" and "Falling for the Big Plan".
Straddling the line of light progressive rock and melodic rock, the five piece still know how to excite an audience and keep the focus on the music. Given the number of live albums Magnum has released through the years (this would be their ninth), I’m guessing this one is going to be for the deepest followers of the band.
