5 stars Wow, they lived few blocks away from sister-in-law!

Oh Montreal, you are so full of surprises. Beneath your multi-cultural cauldron and somewhat gayish attitude, you are a castle for progressive music. Proof is Harmonium, perhaps the most deified rock band of all Quebec. Where I live, talking against Harmonium is simply asking to be stoned by the minute, considering that this band has been almost an ambassador for the political separatism party of Quebec. They are adored (the word is feeble) by more than one generation, and kids are legions to discover this classic out of their father's LP collection (I am one).

As my progressive buddy Cédric and I were arguying about french as a good progrock language, he convinced me (again) of not spitting of classics and giving Harmonium what they deserved. Well, for a 20 year-old guy, he surely has a lot of taste and musical maturity. Thanks buddy, I owe you one....again.

Oh yeah, this being in french is nothing to be feared, considering the immensity of the mellotron, the flute and the acoustic guitar, making me realize more and more where Wobbler got their unique sound and laid-back and flaky attitude. Once again, the 70's speaks for themselves, and I recommend strongly to get a taste of this piece of rock history, straight from the cold plains of Quebec Province.

Thin as the air of the winter but gorged with the scent of fallen leaves.
