Magna Carta was (is?) a record label that did a lot of really cool progressive metal albums in the late 90s. They tended to get a lot of famous musicians to collaborate on albums. Some were tribute records but some were actually 'groups' that would put 1 or 2 records out containing pretty epic songs.
Explorers Club was one of the better super groups of this era. It had 3/5 of Dream Theater, Terry Bozzio, Billy Sheehan, Steve Howe among others. Billy and Terry were a constant rhythm section throughout. There were about 3 singers that took sections, a few guitar players and keyboard players would do solos.
The album is interesting for a few listens. I actually maybe last listened to the record...15 years ago? Before that probably a dozen times in the 5 years after it came out. It brought back quite a few good memories about how I would figure out how to spend what litter cash I had on these releases. They were mostly mail order unless I could get The Exclusive Company to order them for me.
