5 stars I'm not sure I can be very objective in my comment. I must admit I have a particular attachment for this record which enchanted my teenage years with its ethereal tones : somewhere between Pink Floyd and King Crimson, with some recollections of Hackett's Voyage of the acolyte.

Maybe it's a difficult, a very demanding record. More than the obviously and immediately fascinating "Halloween". But if you find how to sail on it, your trip will take you among magnificent dreamlike visions.

We are 1000 miles far from the luxuriant symphonism of Yes, ELP or Genesis. Here, the music is calmed but tourmented. The voice is beautiful and deep, nearly religious sometimes (more especially in the splendid "Window"). The music creates an ideal atmosphere for introspection and takes you like a large celestial river to cosmic landscapes without limits where you think time can not pass.

And when the soft waves of choirs of "Fool's failure" end, you know the dream is over but you feel calmed and reassured. Then, maybe you will think like me it's one of the 5 greatest records of french prog rock.

Kjarks | 5/5 |
