The Magic City MP3
$8.00
The long-awaited second album from Boston's HELIUM is an unexpected departure from the fragmented, angry pop of yore.

Recently naming it one of the best albums of the 90's, The Onion AV Club writes: "The Magic City, while retaining some of Helium's previous acidity, incorporates unabashed Yes-style prog and Renaissance-faire instrumentation. Fantasy and science-fiction themes abound-there's even a song called "Medieval People"-and tracks like "Lullaby Moth" and "Blue Rain Soda" presage Joanna Newsom's Ys a decade in advance. The Magic City sounded kind of like a prank in 1997, when prog was still a four-letter word, but recent history has proven Mary Timony to be a prophet."
