3 stars Voyage cerebral published a few years before corresponds to a high standard of kosmische electronic dreamness. Unfortunately this honest Sequences doesn't reiterate the sensations provided on the previous effort. This is a much more conventional, formalistic, mainstream work divided into short pieces specialised in mysteriously epic, heroic and almost symphonic textural synthscaping sequences. The musical pieces are composed for massive analog synth, electronic repetitive arpeggios, time to time covered by nice, touching piano chords. This album sounds a bit kitschy and cheesy today but it contains some good moments (notably in the haunting, floating tune named nostalgia) and the pieces are well achieved, full of arrengements. I'm sure that these playful, charming almost new agey melodies will ravish fans of late 70's cosmic groovers. A pleasant listening and a real transition for Bocquet who tried to capture an hybrid stylistical approach somewhere between spacey-melodic-symphonic-electronic rock.
