2 stars I had a very hard time tryig to get this record... You know? SECOND PARTS LOOK BETTER!!! well, lie... uhmmm. A complete dissapointment, another bunch of raw and unproduced recordings. They were trying to emulate the old 8 track jazz recordings from the "avant-garde" era: meaning "BITCHES BREW, RETURN TO FOREVER, ETC." with nothing but good feelings and an urge of time-changing with a lack of focus. The 3 fragmented pieces of HYPOTHESE are just plain rehearsals of future greater songs, period!, TUNNEL, the strongest piece of the record is an "homage" to HAWKWIND, SOFT MACHINE (OFCOURSE) AND GONG, but with a edgy metallic side that lacks of essence; the rest of the album is just an study/maquette of fusion-meets-metal with a latin taste without focus, as a showcase of how good they are performing but forgetting the songwriting. A shame from a very young band that has a great future. Just add cohesion and focus to the whole, and maybe in future releases they might surperise us with greater things. peace
