MAGNUM
PRINCESS ALICE AND THE BROKEN ARROW
SPV

British rock veterans Magnum return with their 13th studio album chock full of melodic album rock with PRINCES ALICE AND THE BROKEN ARROW. Balancing their act somewhere between prog rock excess and hard rock histrionics, this 11-track offering is brazen with the kind of radio friendly sounds that bands like Styx and Kansas dole out with a slightly more metal edge a latter-day Deep Purple. With a footing in both fantasy metal and popular rock music, Magnum's latest disc may be a bit too light for the current metal fan, but surely there's an older family member that is bound to dig on the richly textured choruses on tracks like "Dragons are Real".
