5 stars My favourtite COS album. Babel is the third album by COS, and I have to say this is their most experimental album as well. The bases for this album are completely Canterbury Scene, it has much similarities with some British bands from that sub-genre like Soft Machine, Soft Heap, Gilgamesh or Matching Mole, but also it is very similar to some RIO and Zeuhl bands like Henry Cow, Magma or even Univers Zero. (I used this references in another COS review as well).

It is a very interesting experience, even there's a song that sounds like Disco Music, and still sounds proggy. Maybe this was their last Prog Rock album, because in the eighties they changed their sound a lot, so I guess this is a very fancy way to close their Prog discography.

If you like Canterbury Scene you will love this album, if you like RIO you will love this album and if you like Zeuhl you will love this album.

Five stars!
