Magica are one of many bands dedicated to the sound of the Nightwish of old. A lot of these kinds of bands have drifted into Goth-Rock country, but Magica keep their sound defiantly Power Metal, even after three albums. All the ingredients are here: melodic guitar work, some bombast, and sweet female singing. If I had to pick one band Magica remind me of, it would be Visions Of Atlantis, only with no male singing. There are some sweet hooks on this album, and it's a good, satisfying length, but overall they don't infuse their songs with enough identity, and the songs themselves are not that memorable. This is well-played by a talented band, but it doesn't really stay with you.
