Phantasmagoria Esoteric 2018. Phantasmagoria REPERTOIRE 2011. Phantasmagoria Imports 2015. Sort: Recent best-seller Results cached. 'Curved Air'' reached their peak with this album. When you :listen to the great ''Marie Antoinette'', there is no doubt. It is a real prog gem but it overshadows the rest of the album. There won't be another track that will come close to it. It holds a fascinating vocal melody, aerial keys and furious guitar as well; an upbeat second half which solidly rocks is highly welcome. It is one of my all-time fave from the band.

Second Album was the second album released by British rock group Curved Air. It reached No. 11 in the UK Charts on 9 October 1971, and "Back Street Luv" became a UK No. 4 chart hit on 7 August 1971. Both variations of the album cover include a rainbow, a reference to the album A Rainbow in Curved Air, from which the band took their name.

Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). The centerpiece of the album however is the 19'29" epic, four part Phantasmagoria suite which was written largely by Francis Monkman with contributions by Sonja. This is a decent large-scale composition that boasts some exceptionally intricate time signatures and fantastic ensemble playing. This CD reissue by Collector's Choice Music is just OK and has a few informative liner notes that discuss some historical tidbits, along with specifics about the Phantasmagoria album itself.

But still, Phantasmagoria is a fabulous album, the culmination of all that Curved Air promised over the course of its predecessors; the yardstick by which all rock/classical hybrids should be measured. The opening "Marie Antoinette" sets the scene with lovely melody, impassioned vocal and a terrifically understated band performance which complements every syllable uttered by vocalist Sonja Kristina
