5 stars Impressive and original release from this 70's French band. The project seems to incorporate and infiltrate some ancient mythologies and turn it into music for a really passionate, "cosmic" enigmatic "trip". The Mellotron contributes to make this album a highway to a spacey, adventurous journey throw the antique past and the astral nebulous. It sounds a bit like early Tangerine Dream at their most experimental moments (essentially in the visceral , naturalistic "atem"), delivering immersive electronic incantations and abstract visceral atmospheres. "Deadle vers du retour" starts with a brilliant, monotnous melody including electronic keys sounding like a flute, almost pastoral epic acoustic guitars. "Meandres envoutés" is a moody, rather dark, electronic invention, conjugating different synth voices, really weird but always fascinating and introspective. "Arc en lumire" is a marvellous synthesised orchestration for dreamy soundscapes. That is obviously music for the brain and a higher state of consciousness without being mainstream, always bringing to the fore an intelligent sense of harmony. Timeless!
