4 stars How can this not be rated?!!! This is prime Canterbury music, an essential listening for all jazz/rock/progressive devotee's.

From the beginning, this album just takes off, and leaves you with the appreciation of a real writer of music, that can put his thoughts into other contributor musicians heads and they become a single unit. From soaring solo's to articulate compositional arrangements, this just doesn't getting any better. Add the unique French take/creativity on the prog Canterbury slant, and you get a wonderful work of listenable, quirky music.

As a musician myself, I have always found it interesting to hear the composition of drummers, as they take a much closer look at not only rhythmic ideas, but harmonic tension and release. From Bruford, Daniel Denis, Christian Vander, and here; Patrick Forgas, comes such thoughtful, expressions.

When thinking of trying something new, try any or all of the Patrick Forgas Phenomena albums - each unique, and all entertaining.

As always, thanks to Progarchives for being, well, Proggy!!!
