5 stars If you were of a certain age in Quebec or the Acadian part of New Brunswick, chances are that you had this album or knew someone who did. Imagine America with intelligence, jazz sense, guitar mastery (especially 12 string) & a way with melody that brought to mind symphinic prog, without the mellotron or orchestra so rich is the sonic palette the group used. Pour Un Instant is a song that still carries with it a certain weight in Quebec, its' lyrics message about consciously starting to believe in oneself. Un Musicien Parmi Tant D'autres details the up & down nature of music. Here Today, gone tomorrow, replaced by the newest sensation. Enjoy your time in the spotlight, but know that others will have their turn, then ending with the epilogue asking where have all the people who had stories to tell gone; that we bring children into this world, maybe we should at the least listen to what they have to say. As a final note, I think if you polled french speaking canadians on Harmonium's musical ouput, this one would come out on top by a wide margin, because of its' special place in our hearts.
