4 stars Gerard Manset is one of the French počtes maudits, cultivating mystery, poetry, innovation far from the beaten tracks of French commercial, easy listening chanson. Few French musicians have this rich flavour except perhaps William Sheller. A great melodist and arranger, this man can play on words too. This first real opus is a gem. A concept album based on Science-Fiction, the story of a dying planet. A universe close to the first King Crimson's albums plus the French touch (stress on the vocals and lyrics), including an orchestra. More progressive by the attitude than by the typical prog sound as we mean today. But we are in 1970, aren't we? Very recommended. Recently reissued and remastered.
