4 stars Ange is a historical French rock band from France. It was founded in Belfort, France in 1969 and has been very active. With this new "Heureux!", Ange has released eight Album Their music I personally think that in addition to the symphony, the most special is the drama tension and the dark atmosphere like KC, and my favorite album is "Guet-Apens" released in 1978, not so much like Genesis Say they are like KC, in creating a dark and desperate but beautiful atmosphere. Of course, French is indeed very suitable for singing drama, it sounds weird and full of turning point. It can be said that although in the beginning they were dedicated to the symphonic avant-garde, but then gradually opened up many areas, the band is full of extraordinary creativity and exploration. The new album is a grand musical adventure, opening the theatrical style and symphony integration, and they can clearly feel more "rock" (strong bass), it is not surprising that they had a very Psychedelic and hard rock. Maybe because Zeuhl is played a lot by the French front rock band, I can feel some of Zeuhl's flavors, weird, exaggerated, humorous, repetitive bass and piano marches in the music, but it's clear that Ange is a bit more polished thanks to them There is a very small fresh melody, yes, their ballad orientation is also obvious. Therefore, I think they are essentially a symphonic orchestral eclectic band. The 17-minute epic "Nancy-Jupiter À La Nage (Odyssée 14'00)" was a mysterious narration at the beginning, but it suddenly caught off a cheerful orgasm and ended up in their old line - field. The last one called their style of fusion, it is no wonder made a long one short two versions. The new artillery is still good old, you can play a solid four-star recommendation!
