4 stars No! Do not worry, this is not Electronic Prog. In fact it is close to any other Prog sub-genre, less the fast Metal Rock ones.

Visiting the preferences of another fellow PA reviewer, I came across with this musician, Pascal Comelade (french, multi-intrumentalist, composer). I would not judge why he was stuck in such a neglected category (by the "majority" of audiophiles, not me and others, or the "minority" in a politically correct language).

The amount of electronics used in this remarkable multi-oriented work, is the same as any average prog/rock band. In fact the multitude of instruments (really a lot, not at the same time, of course!) leans towards the acoustic ones. The songwriting alone is completely eclectic or crossover (depending where you are standing). The richness of each performance, competes with one another.

Expect detailed compositions which can be as simple as attractive. Expect each song to go a different route, without exceeding emphasis or "musicianship", to prove nothing to no one. Expect fun, introspection, a mature yet unpretentious musical language and a friendly musical environment.

As far as "routes" go, expect instrumental Rock, Blues, Jazz, (native) Folk, RiO (SAMLA like not UZ), and the progressive imagination in the composition of each highly entertaining song. But really do not expect Prog/Electronics as such!....( In fact we could "exchange" Pascal for Jean Michel, wherever he ended up, no diplomatic conflict at all, just kidding!).

****4 "multi-oriented" PA stars. A keeper!
