5 stars We all have to agree in one thing: Magma started Zeuhl without a doubt. But we also have to agree that there are a lot of bands and artists that have taken Zeuhl to a higher level than Magma did (or should I say does?) and Jannick Top is a great example, who additionaly was part of Magma and contributed in a lot of songs. Jannick Top by himself is synonim of great Zeuhl, and this album is not the exception. Every element that makes Zeuhl great is present: female vocals, dark music, shiftings and jumps and great bass BTW. I really consider this album a masterpiece, it is a suite that represents the glory of Zeuhl but taken to 2008, something really hard IMO, but still I enjoy a lot modern Zeuhl, like Magma's K.A. or Shub Niggurath's Introduction. An absolute gem, a treasure, prehaps the greatest Zeuhl work to date (really!) and my third favorite Zeuhl album, a little short of Eskaton's 4 Visions and Corima's Quetzalcˇatl. A must.
