5 stars One of my favorite albums of all time. Some won't agree but this is by far my favorite Magma album. Sublime and mysterious. Minimalist, heavy and dark, the 30-minute title track smoulders and burns, until the last few minutes when it goes for the throat and rips your head off. The two shorter tracks aren't as good but they are classic nonetheless. This recording belongs in the highest pantheon of prog divinities along with "Relayer", "Lark's Tongues in Aspic", "The Power and the Glory" and just a few others. Oh by the way, like those albums, you have to listen to it more than a few times. Then it will become part of your life.
