4 stars W-O-W!

When it comes to France, progressive rock is meeting new ground. Bands like Ange, Nemo, Clearlight, Gong and Magma made their mark by creating (most of the time) some new trends and even sometimes, a new category. And to me, french progressive rock meant bizarre, complex and hard to reach music, and with Taal, it's still weird but the 'wow factor' is simply too high to ignore this band.

How come this band is still unknown? It's a shame to bypass such quality, skillness, energy and intelligence in these neo-progressive times that we are living. Not that neo prog is bad, it's just that Taal is recreating the complexity and enigmatic atmosphere of Anglagard, the energy of a young Dream Theater and the néo-classical approach of Yngwie Malmsteen...it feels so good to have something nourrishing to chew on.

Words are missing to tell you how great and exciting this is for me, since many bands are drawing away from such majestic orchestration and intelligent songwriting. A huge round of applause to that enduring guitar player who delivers and carries the song on his shoulders, track after track.

Kudos to Taal that delivers a powerful exercise of energy, skills wrapped in an eerie atmosphere.

A powerful and symphonic whiplash.
