5 stars This group arrived like a kind of UFO in my musical sky : technical, intricate, extremely subtile compositions and very high level musianship. A kind of perfect integration of jazz elements in prog, the result being absolutely not jazz-rock but pure prog music.

Perpetual changes, intense energy catch you and take you for a long run in infinite labyrinths. You take a direction and you soon have to change it for a new one. Nevertheless, you are always confortably sat in a deep armchair and discover new landscapes, new colours.

Sometimes you feel you have found inedit pieces from King Crimson's "Islands" sessions and you ask yourself : maybe these archives are still better. Sometimes, you feel you are somewhere between Magma and the Mahavishnu Orchestra ! Then, an atmospheric moment drawn by synths and light piano make you float closer to the serenity of Anthony Philips or maybe Willow White. It won't last?

Impressive, even fascinating at many respects. 4,5 stars.
