ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Ghost of a Living Twilight" is set outdoors. Sound effects sprinkled throughout the CD give the impression that you are sitting by a crackling fire, near a lake, watching a gorgeous Sunset. The experience of Twilight is a special time that captures the majesty and mystery of Nature. It has invoked the imagination for endless millennia, yet is still as haunting and inspiring as when first seen.
"Ghost of a Living Twilight" could be a soundtrack for such a moment. Each of the 13 tracks are distinctively flowing, ethereal in sound and feel. It reflects the spatial freedom of open thought. Lyrically, MagellanMusic explores various subjects in an almost philosophical manner. There is no angst, just a search for answers and the understanding of things we all deal with at one time or another.
"Ghost of a Living Twilight" clocks in at 60:52, features 8 lyrical songs, 5 instrumentals, and 2 cover songs (by Klaatu), all expressed in different genres. It's musically intriguing, lyrically enchanting, all within Progressive Rock bordering on New Age. It is a tribute to the wonders of Nature, to those who respect and nurture it's fragility, and to those who live and let live it's myriad inhabitants.

Magellan's "Ghost" the Best They've Ever Done!
This CD is Magellan's best to date. The musicianship and vocal qualities are top-notch; the songwriting superb; the instrumentals are a wonderful augmentation to the lyrical compositions. From beginning to end, creates the mood of an ethereal twilight. Comparable to any big name band of the same musical style. Excellent. Even gives Pink Floyd a run for their money.

Excellent. This band is awsome.
This band is out-of-this-world.
Their music goes straight to my soul.
I don't understand where they have been all this time,
surely someone in the music industry must listen to
this music and sign them to a recording contract.
What a coo that would be.
I have only the highest praise for their music, and
consider myself extremely lucky to have had the chance
to hear them. I hope that everyone will have a chance
to hear them.

Too hard not to listen to...
Normally this style of music isn't 'my cup of tea', but I couldn't take it out of my CD player. It was haunting. I kept going back, listening closely, trying to figure out what it was that so captured my imagination. The melodies, the vocals, the music - it was a combination of velvet play and thoughtful introspection that created not just a style, but an entire world of it's own. Bands just don't play like this any more. And I truly wish they did.

Takes My Breath Away!
I absolutely love this CD. No other Group can hold a candle to this one, they are the best I've ever heard. I could easily listen to it all day long and not grow tired of the spectacular sound. This is truely a sensual sound that will touch your soul, like a summer breeze will touch your skin. It's breathtakingly beautiful and will end the pressures of the day. It leaves you with a peaceful calm feeling. I describe it as a kiss to the ears. I wouldn't want to be without it. It is impossible to even pick a favorite cut, I love it all! .. Thanks, MagellanMusic!

Fantastic!
I can't say enough good things about this spectacular collection of rare and beautiful music. I also can't listen to it often enough. I did myself a HUGE favor by buying it!

Dark The Day makes this disc worth it!
I heard the song "Dark The Day" on Aural Moon. I ended up playing it over and over until the buffer ran out! This song alone makes it worth buying this CD. It's dark and moody, and beautifully haunting; a nice blend of Alice In Chains ("Rotten Apple") and Pink Floyd, and maybe a few other bits of influence to spice it up. I need to check out more by these guys!

Where have they been all this time?
Funny how people spend too much time hunting for good sounds by Indies, but CD's like this make it all worthwhile. I haven't heard anything like this in years. I sat outside recently, enjoying a calm moment while listening, and it really gave me a whole new ambience. Gave me a feeling of comfort and looseness. At times it was almost too deep. It's moodiness seemed to relate an ironic, bittersweet happiness. And if that lush music was any smoother I could spread it on my bread. Great CD, and I look forward to more.

Music for the soul
I happened upon MagellanMusic through the luck of fate. My first acquisition was 'Ghost of a Living Twilight' and it was rapture at first listen.

I am about as far from a music aficianado as one can probably get. I know very little about the technical aspect. I do, however love music and have always been drawn towards music I can simply close my eyes to and listen with my heart, mind and soul. I am captivated by pieces that help me to paint a picture or envision a wonderful ballet or modern dance. Ghost most definitely accomplishes that.

There are so many different layers to each of the songs. It has been impossible for me to ever get tired or feel bored by any of the tracks. The accoustical guitar on this album felt as if my own heartstrings were being played.

Beginning with the very first instrumental piece, 'Drifting' I was drawn into this mystical and wondrous world and was able to escape into some breathtaking moments of pure serenity. There are several instrumental pieces on the CD, and each one takes me to a different place and time.

The lyrics in all of the songs can, I am certain, be taken into any one person's life experience(s) at one time or another. They touch the heart, even the soul. In particular I was very drawn to 'Daydreams', 'Crying Inside', 'Season of Life' and 'Picture'.

If you are a person who has a simple love for music that can reach out and touch you, this is a perfect CD.

Thoughtful and intelligent
When I first heard this I wasn't sure what to think. Sometimes I get CD's and I'm burned out after a few listens, but this one wouldn't let go. I listened to it a few times, then discovered how excellent it was. Captivating. It made me listen. In it's own world, sort of, but very intelligent; worth listening to and not just hearing in the background. Musical environment was superb. Voices were sexy and luscious; the kind of sound perfect for a romantic evening that could last an entire night. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes music that really means something.

Unexpected
I have never heard anything like this. It's so simple at first, then listen more and it's complicated. It mesmerizes me. Calming and gentle, but moody. Leaves you wondering where it is going next. I especially like Images but they're all good.
