"I have followed Magnum for 17 years and have bought all their album. I would vote this their second best after Vigilante, that I must say was excellent. They are a band that should have been more popular, due to their lyrics and music, but hey atleast we appreciated them.
I have met Bob and Tony, and you can't have met nicer guys, I am proud to be a fan and will continue to support them."

"When the history of British Rock is written, it will be seen as criminal if this album (and indeed "Vigilante" and "Wings of Heaven" that followed it) is excluded from such a list. Magnum have always had the ability to evoke powerful images and emotions through the joint efforts of the band's superb musicianship, Tony Clarkin's exquisite lyrics and Bob Catley's heartfelt singing. He is seen more as a storyteller than a straight vocalist, as his voice perfectly captures the mood and emotion that each song asks of him. Epic songs "How Far Jerusalem?", On A Storyteller's Night" and the excellent "Les Morts Dansant" sit alongside pop-rock number such as "Two Hearts", "Just Like An Arrow" and the under-rated "Steal Your Heart". Coupled with the gorgeous piano-ballad "The Last Dance", this is an album who's delights are savoured time and time again with each new playing. Also, the album cover by Rodney Matthews is superb too."
Magnum's Best

"The single from this album - "Just Like An Arrow" - brought me into Magnum's world. And what a world ! Storytellers is a fantastic album, both the sound and Rodney Matthews' artwork. More complete than perhaps any other that they've recorded though I would rate "Sleepwalking" and "Rock Art" as both at least 4 stars... Bob Catley's voice and Tony Clarkin's words create an incredible imagery in your mind - I challenge anyone to listen to "Les Morts Dansants" and not picture the soldier shot by his comrades - "paper square to his heart pinned tight..." I've been lucky enough to have seen them live at their peak - once at Birmingham Odeon and a couple of times at Birmingham NEC. For a band that was so relatively unsuccessful in sales terms to fill a venue like the NEC was amazing. They're still around, having reformed 3 or so years ago, releasing albums and touring. Go and see them if you get the chance..."
