There comes a time in everyone’s adventure in music where one asks, “Is there such thing as ‘too much of a good thing’?” It’s easy to summarize your viewpoint on life in this question. This question, however, gets immediately muddled by the existence of Magenta by Seajeff (fka C-Jeff); founder of the gateway to a ton of excellent progressive jams known as Ubiktune.

There are some predictable names on their list, but some of the more obscure and avant garde artists piqued my attention. Such a wide array of influences is indeed on display in each track of this album; time to dive in! (more…)
