5 stars This very much the easiest to listen to album by Heldon, the changing musical scene presented in "Bolero", the almost comic sound of " Une drole de Journee" and the crafted rock and (sometimes) roll of "Stand-by" give the listener a changing landscape of sound. RP is a master of his guitar, a self confessed Fripp fan, he plays with a little more sublety, but manages to blend this with the madness of the accompanying bass, synths & battering ram drums. If one album can entice you to buy the back catalogue of a band, it then deserves the highest praise, Stand-by got me hooked on this very good French band, and so it gets my highest praise, this is an un-missable album for any prog-rocker worth his name! One critisism, the later cd re-issue of the album starts of with Stand-by, then Une drole de Journee, to finish with Bolero, it may be years of listening to the album with the tracks in their original order, but this order seems less satisfying, maybe Cuniform or whoever prepared the release should have a rethink and put the tracks in their original format.
