4 stars As you Prog guys already know, Ange is the most important band in French prog scene. Well, not only in the French prog scene but also in the Prog World. How many albums do you think they released so far? It's about 40 albums officially. There are about 20 studio albums among them except live and compilation albums. Plus one more question, how many Ange albums have you ever listened?

The reason I'm starting my review like this is to give you no illusion about the reputation of Ange. Quite frankly Ange is not the 70's virtuoso band like Yes, ELP,Gentle Giant, Jethro Tull, Genesis, ..Don't ever think that you are going to hear amaging technical sound from them.

However you will come to believe why Ange is very important artists when you listen to this album, "Le Cimetiere Des Arlequins-The Cemetry Of Harlequin. The charismatic vocal, sentimental violin, thrilling melotron and most of all, dramatic composition will prove their reputation and the glory.

This album is called the re-interpretation of legendary Jacques Brel's song called Ces Gens La. I hope you guys could enjoy this fantastic French theatrical prog album as well.

I'm sure I go for Le Cimetiere des arlequins, Au-dela du delire, Emil Jacotey, Par les fils de Mandrin and Les larmes du Dalai Lama. Give it a shot!
