Magenta’s album Seven from 2004 was voted into Classic Rock Presents Prog’s Top 50 albums of all time – one of only a handful of contemporary albums to make it, which is some feat considering the likes of Pink Floyd, Genesis, Rush, King Crimson, Yes, Marillion, Jethro Tull and ELP occupy the majority of the titles in the list!
