From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars I was attracted by this album mostly because I speak French and it was offered free on their website. I did not have any expectations on my first listen, but I must say that I'm pretty surprised by this group. With only an acoustic guitar, a bass guitar and some very basic percussion, they achieve to create a very dense and dark atmosphere. The progression of intensity in their songs somehow reminds me of M.D.K. by Magma (only the progression, not the sound). I would rather compare the sound to some of the late acoustic guitar work by Robert Fripp. The only small thing that kind of annoyed me is the signer's voice at some points on the album. Often it contributes to the atmosphere but at some places it seems out of place. I would recommend this album to any open minded prog listener.
