5 stars Wow!!! Sloche's 2 L.P.s really are tremendous examples of mid-70s Prog!! Living in New Hampshire during the '80s, a Sloche LP would occasionally turn up at used record stores in the area. A lot of Canadian ex patriots lived in N.H. Most prog fans I've spoken to have never heard of Sloche. I think they are one of the most criminally forgotten '70s groups. Listening to this group, you'll hear bits of Yes, Gentle Giant, Canterbury, & Jazz Fusion. But, this group has their own sound, too. Although mostly instrumental, there is some singing in French which is well executed. The thing I love about them is their complicated,first rate compositional approach and how easily the pull it all off. Playing complex music is one thing, but a well written tune is hard to come by(especially in the Prog genre). I really like a lot of Canadian groups like Morse Code, FM, Conventum,Et Cetera,etc., but Sloche are my favorite. Their records are easily the equal of other classics of that era by Genesis, Gentle Giant, Hatfield...,Picchio Dal Pozzo, Soft Machine, etc... These guys were GREAT!!! Absolutely essential!!
