2015 reissue of Magical Ring's "Light Flight / More and More", originally released in 1977.
Components of rock and pop unite here in this lone effort from Magical Ring. Elements of dark slow funk and soul take the listener to the early seventies, a couple of years before the album's release, and a garment of swirling synthesizers keep it all together. The atmosphere can be soft and gentle, like the touch of a lover's hand, but it can also become more and more mysterious and gloomy, generating a feeling of paranoia as if you're on the run and have no idea what you are running from. Some passages have these big and catchy melodies, and despite the lightweight groove in some compositions, there is always a thought-provoking melancholy present. It's catchy but still rather wicked. It takes a turn from the pop and rock elements in the beginning and chooses a more epic direction with each song. The great late Edgar Froese (Tangerine Dream) or Klaus Schulze would certainly raise their hats to this project in deep respect. A beautiful little obscurity from an utterly strange and magical scene.
