4 stars The famous French combo from Lyon is back with a brand new album. Privately produced, the sound is perfect as usual. Musically speaking, Pulsar's music is closer now to ambient music than space or symphonic prog. Expect no echoes of « The Strands » or « Halloween ». But soft, melancholy, nostalgic prog. Don't be afraid, this is prog rock indeed, not new age! Mainly instrumental, the music have some strong moments with effects and guitar parts ('Monks' for instance). Pulsar still features the four members of the original line-up (they are high school friends) and guest bass player Louis Paralis who joined the band on « Görlitz » in 1989. Yes, the French Pink Floyd is back from the past, and they are still bright and burning. (first published in Acid Dagon #46)
