3 stars An interesting addition to the Canterbury scene from France.

The name of the band kind of gives away the game here. It is jazz/fusion Canterbury scene prog. Those who think SOFT MACHINE and GONG is as far as you can go in the direction of fusion/jazz, this album will take you even further into the fields of unearthly jazz and avant garde.

The sax reminds me about SOFT MACHINE. The bass is not millions of miles away from GONG. The music is in the same direction, just a lot more jazz. The interplay is mostly very impressive and full of small, very interesting details. The mood is nice. Overall; this is a very challenging album. This is also a very nice album with small details like a choir as a bonus. It manage to keep my attention. The title track is very good with it's changing themes and moods.

I have to admit that this album is probably too left-field avant-garde for my tastebuds. But I still likes it in my own way. PA is right to brand it as a hidden gem, well worth exploring. I believe most Canterbury scene fans will like what they get here. Like I do.
