2 stars This 1975 album by the wife of a former drummer of MAGMA bears little or no resemblance to that band, instead straddling the border of space rock and folk-jazz. Split between subdued vocal cuts and organ dominated soundtrack styled pieces, it never quite gains traction in either of its musical galaxies; even if it's all listenable, it winds up being less than the sum of its parts, with the best track being the hypnotic and eerie "Soleil Rouge". By the time the closing title cut gets going it's just too little too late, the focus lost for good. 2.5 stars, rounded down.
