4 stars The last Offering album to this date!

This album is not that consise as the other albums by Offering, but that doesnt mean its bad, not at all, this is actually a very satisfying album in all ways, it is very varied and starts of with a Kobaian Hymn, with only a big organ and nothing else (I Swear i have heard this melody in magma, but i cant put my fingers to it...) Then comes "Cosmos" which is a interlude for the Title track, both songs are stunning and i think these songs shows the evolution of the band and i feel the link to Magma is very evident on these two tracks, A Fiieh was played live already in 1987, and i wonder why Vander took so long to finish up this album (as all 80/90/00 records by him and his bands)

then comes "La Marche Cleste" which i really have not many words for, a decent tune with a very minimalistic theme, lots of harmony vocals in the background...next tune is a strange song called "Magnifi" which deals with (i think) the varoius obstacles mankind must pass through, the lady vocals just repeats the words magnifi, purifi, magnifi, and the next song up is "purificatem" which is a very wild song, and very jazzy, this song took me about 10-15 listens to just get into, again the words fails me to explain any serious details about this, another one you just have to hear, to make up your own opinion.

This album is worth getting non the less, but you should try Offering I & II before you start to get into this record

A solid 4!
