3 stars 3.5 really

Second album comes in a period when no one was really intrested in prg music, was released in 1981 named Gamme. Keeping on the same coordonates and same attitude as on their first album, Synopsis here sounds closer to Ange fame more then before. Also lots of instrumental parts , really awesome for sure, but overall I think is not as great as Minuit ville. The album alternates from mellow sections with a Camel feel to more energic ones where the synth and guitars having an important role. Pieces like Cities, the instrumental Novembre are quite great showing that Synopsis were a very promissing band in prog rock zone, but sadly thir music was buried in the dust of time, only few peoples knows about them. They disbanded soon after this release I guess in 1982. Definetly Synopsis is one of the best kept secrets ever came from Franch prog school, with both albums being recommended for fans of symphonic prog with a good doze of space prog inventivness.
