Fragments of the 5th Element is Magic Pie’s long awaited 5th album, made up from 5 tracks showcasing tracks showcasing the band’s very diverse influences. On this record, they have tried to steer clear of the sterile perfection which modern prog bands have a tendency to get caught up in – and have gone for a slightly more unpolished sound, a bit rough in the edges. A little more ‘bite’.
From the bombastic and genre-defying opener “The Man Who Had It All” to the epic 23 minute album closed “The Hedonist”, this album has Magic Pie firing on all cylinders! It’s safe to say that it has definitely been worth the wait.
