Magstatic
Cruise Liner (Running Records)

By: Jeb Branin

Wow. What can I say? MAGSTATIC have outdone themselves yet again. Their debut full length CD is pure class from beginning to end. From the handmade and hand assembled covers to the smooth and graceful music there isn't a single thing that fails to impress me here. The band's pop is as smooth as it is infectious. Dreamy vocals, cutting guitars, crisp rhythms, and soaring melodies all lend an air of distinction to "Cruise Liner". Light and sophisticated touches of emo and punk provide the band an umbilical to their roots but in no way anchor them to repeating their successes of the past. This music is romantic and rockin' at the same time a combination that I daresay very few bands would have the guts to try, if they could even comprehend it in the first place. A masterpiece.
