Artist: Magic Box
Title: Bliss of a Madman
Produced by: Lynskey, Denny, Maxwell
Label/ Date: Pascal Records/ 2003
Magic Box is basically comprised of two musicians: Tom Maxwell (of The Blue Hawaiians) and film maker/guitarist Steve Denny (Oscuro) along with guests. Together they created soundscapes that would make any Fripp fan happy on Bliss of a Madman which contains some of the most original music I’ve heard in ages. Aside from being rooted within the progressive music genre, these excellent and relatively unknown musical genius’ go way beyond classification. Not convinced yet? Well fans of early Pink Floyd and Tangerine Dream will Magic Box a worthy enitiy to continue while adding a modern musical flare.
Bliss of a Madman has a “soundtrack” like vibe to it and definitely belongs in all progressive music fan’s collections. This is one of my favorites of 2003!
