5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Once In A Blue Moon 3 de abril de 2016
Por VITSOL - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: CD de audio Compra verificada
Once in a blue moon, an album like this one comes along and just blows me away. YouTube suggested it and after the first listening, I ordered it from an Amazon partner because American audiences have yet to catch on to this great band from Norway. It took me four years to finally stumble upon it. It defies classification, but it is a mixture of progressive metal, symphonic progressive, and great vocal harmonies. Rhymes within the thought provoking lyrics are used sparsely and only when necessary. It is flawless from start to finish. Musicianship is stellar!!! I have had it for more than a month and it still gives me the goosebumps with each listen. Listen to it all of it on YouTube and decide for yourself, but don't be a freeloader. Support this fantastic band! When it comes to the high cost for all four of their CD's, they will be released in America at a much cheaper rate in mid-April of 2016, so hang in there. I paid the high price and don't regret it! Can't wait to see them live, even if I have to fly to Europe.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Magic Pie fully realizes their potential. 12 de julio de 2011
Por Brian - Publicado en Amazon.com

Magic Pie's first couple of albums were fairly solid prog efforts, if a bit uneven in places, that still make it into my rotation every once in a while. Songs like "Change" from Motion of Desire gave me reason to believe these guys were capable of some outstanding music and that's what kept me checking back in on them from time to time. Man am I glad I did. The Suffering Joy really represents some fantastic work from these guys and really takes them up several notches in the prog genre so that this latest album is easily on par with some of the finest modern prog out there.

Not only is the album more consistent musically, it's a bit more diverse than previous efforts and has quite a bit more edge to their music than on previous albums. I'd compare the quality of music on this album to some of Spock's Beard's and/or Flower King's best albums and would Highly recommend anyone who's a fan of Spock/Transatlantic/Neal Morse/Flower Kings type material.

On a side note, I don't usually listen for/care too much about the lyrics on most albums, but on this one, there's a lot of great philosophical ground covered making this not only an outstanding prog concept album, but a very intelligent one as well. This album is Magic Pie's best release to date an a must have for any modern prog fan.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Best Magic Pie album yet 30 de marzo de 2014
Por Joel - Publicado en Amazon.com

Magic Pie, as another reviewer mentioned, has had a habit of releasing somewhat uneven albums. "Motions of Desire," their debut, had a dud track or two on it ("Full Circle Poetry" was boring). "Circus of Life," their second album, started out good but just didn't hold up over time.

Now this, this album is fantastic. "The Suffering Joy" starts out with a great series of tracks (not exactly epic, since there's an epic in the series anyway ... I call it a song cycle). These provide a great opening to the album, and what I love about this from the start is that Magic Pie has developed their sound since their previous release. We have some gorgeous alto vocals from a female backup vocalist on a couple of different tracks, for example.

Of course, there's still plenty to love from the classic Magic Pie sound. Great choruses mixing multiple singers, awesome guitar playing, and good ol' crunchy keyboard/organ sounds. One of the things that signals to me that "The Suffering Joy" is excellent, is that in spite of the number of long tracks (most are over 8 minutes) and the length of the album as a whole (well over an hour), it doesn't bore me. I've gotten rid of CDs before just because they had too much material to process. Neal Morse albums come to mind. This, however, is long with lots to process, but is one of the best I've purchased in years. Great thought-provoking lyrics, too.

I only wish I had found this sooner!
4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas I tend to think of this album as something like "Styx on steroids 6 de agosto de 2016
Por Kenneth Richards - Publicado en Amazon.com

A solid album, but perhaps lacking some of the symphonic overtones often heard in Yes or other prog rock bands. At risk of being a bit negative,
I tend to think of this album as something like "Styx on steroids." The tones are definitely upbeat, and the musicianship is outstanding. The complexity of the songs on this album is another aspect of the "steroids" to Styx. Magic Pie is a lot more complex, a lot tighter, and their vocals are quite good, too. But compared to the vocals of a band like Genesis or Gentle Giant, for example--well, those vocals are hard to live up to.
I think this album, and Magic Pie, in general, speak well for what I call "neo-prog rock". The old prog bands have mostly gone pop or gone to pasture; Magic Pie is a real good example of the newer prog, clearly alive & well.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A fantastic progressive rock album 30 de enero de 2014
Por Kenney - Publicado en Amazon.com

If you're a fan of old school progressive rock from the 70s, but want to have something with a modern edge, this is a fantastic album. Each and every song is very gripping and leaves you wanting to listen to it more. Each time I play through this album, I find new things I did not hear before. You owe it to your ears to have this in your music collection.
