3 stars Halloween second album is very far to be a prog masterpiece but has some interesting moments. Mast of the album is based on some H.P. Lovecraft stories and because that fact you expect something darkest and underground but Laz doesn't have much of this characteristics.

The album opens with The Wood, a song that sounds really nice and maybe the most dark of the album and closer to Lovecraft stuff. Waltz is another good song leaded by Giles Coppin keyboards. Just for You is a beautiful instrumental ballad, almost jazzy with a great work on bass by Yann Honoré. Yule Horror is another dark song with some good athmospheres. Iron Mickey is a powerful instrumental piece very hard and rhythmical. Without a doubt, my favourite track.

The last three songs of the album (Suburb, Blue Nightmare and Laz) sounds weak even with some kind of sections totally out place and makes you loose the stuff you can enjoy of the first part of the album.

At last, not the best way to introduce yourself into Halloween stuff. Just for the first part of the album, 3*.
