5 stars Most won't know this group from Montreal,Quebec, Canada and that is a real shame because it is one of those GEMs that made it locally but never made it world wide because they stuck to their native tongue ie : French. Not understanding the French Quebecois dialect might throw some of you off a bit, but hang on and the lyrics will eventually just become sounds as part of the melody. This masterpiece can be described as 70s folk progressive .There is plenty of acoustic instruments with drums bass and synthesizers as well.You can hear a bit of woodwinds in the style that might be compared loosely to Supertramp.It also has a stlye of flutes that could be compared to PeterGabreils style but more complex.The vocal harmonisizing is excellent. Their best song is "Histoires sans parole" = "Stories without Lyrics " It's a smooth 17 minute exquisite instrumental piece thats is like being in a textured dream changing from theme to another with pleasure and grace. This is a one of my top ten albums. Do yourself a favor and listen to this gem with an open mind and it will bring you limitless hours of enjoyement
