Magnum II is the second studio album by British melodic rock band Magnum. It was released in 1979 on Jet Records.
Magnum II followed on from the success of Magnum's debut album, Kingdom of Madness. Recorded with former-Ten Years After bass player Leo Lyons, who had success with producing Phenomenon, Force It and No Heavy Petting for UFO.
As with debut album Kingdom of Madness, much of the material on Magnum II was already written and had already been previewed in Magnum's live set and were suitably "road tested". The album, however failed to chart on its release in October 1979.
Both "Changes" released in September 1979 and "Foolish Heart" released November 1979 were singles.
The 2005 expanded version of the album was reissued on 22 September 2006 in Japan with Mini LP/Paper Sleeve packaging through Arcangelo. The album was also included in a limited edition Japanese Box Set, comprising all six of Sanctuary Records Expanded and Remastered releases with Mini LP/Paper Sleeve packaging. The set included an outer box featuring Magnum's Chase the Dragon artwork.
