5 stars This has to be my all-time favorite French progressive album. (I also love Nino Ferrer's Metronomies but it's not on ProgArchives...)

Nostalgic melodies, socially-relevant lyrics and very interesting vocals all merge together into an experience that is so overwhelming it's almost unbelievable that it has remained an extremely confidential release--even here in France! If you're interested in reading a discussion in French about the album and the band, including some snippets from people previously from the band (or close to them), you might want to check out this page:

Fans of Banlieues will REALLY want to check out Megot's (aka Maurice Boguet's) album "Ballades pour nous" (aka "Ballade pour nous", don't ask me why), which featured the same lineup and has a couple of excellent songs that would perfectly fit on Banlieues. You can order this album on CD-R directly from the artist at
