Opening song "In The Beginning" is probably the best example of progressive leanings on the album, but even though the basis of the music is pretty basic melodic hard rock there are just enough surprises along the way to call this borderline progressive.
The musicianship is really great. A great playing band. I expected nothing but got a whole lot more than that by listening to "Kingdom of Madness". A good debut album by Magnum well deserving a 3. This debut from Magnum stands out from all their other albums in belonging to a different era.
While the rest of the band's output has a sound heavily rooted in the 80's, the present music is more rooted in the 70's. In many ways Kingdom Of Madness might also be Magnum's most progressive album, but that does not mean that it is the best. With its bombastic sound and heavy presence of synthesisers, this sounds quite a lot like Styx at their best and perhaps even like a harder edged, more progressive, and more talented The Sweet!
However, I much prefer Magnum over those bands. Indeed, the album would have been better if they had just dropped this embarrassing number from the track list. Compared with some of what the band would do later on, this is not bad, but it does feel a little bit shallow and immature at times.
The title track has remained in the band's set list until the present day and is a true Magnum classic. It begins with a wonderful, Genesis-like acoustic guitar intro with flute on top.
