The cover of the latest Magna Carta album The Fields Of Eden - in the shops since June 15th, 2015

"What a great album. It is everything that you want from a Magna Carta record and then some. The title track is brilliant and so evocative of times gone by, I absolutely loved it. There is no filler on this album it is 100% classic Magna Carta, with a mixture of musical styles that keeps the listener interested to the end. This album is a corker.

Great job Chris, there really is life in the old dog yet!"
