More information: A re-issue of Magellan's fourth album Hundred Year Flood. The idea that this is the big one, the one generations will reoccurring talk about, the one that swept away everything. Prodigious progressive legends Trent and Wayne Gardner and their family had something taken away as well: a brother and a son, swept away in the heat of battle back in Vietnam. The story is here, as Hundred Year Floods opening track The Great Goodnight. It is graphic and emotionally crushing. It is touching and it resonates a sort of timeless spirit-swift knowledge. But the event, in itself, as rare and poignant as it is, is not the Hundred Year Flood. The term refers directly to the act of just talking about it, letting an amazing story such as this get told.
