3 stars SEQUENTIA LEGENDA is a concept, a project of a French keyboard instrumentalist who had to swim in the electronic music of the 70s listening KLAUS SCHULZE or TANGERINE DREAM. This musician out this month a true masterpiece of revival "Berlin Old School" with a tinted music sounds "master", but also with a creation, energy and atmospheric compositions and sequenced in fine style; it is simple, as there are the melodic lines of the albums that have flooded many prog music fans, as these new compositions exude a higher energy, more incisive rapidly put into a trance ... "as in the past."

For titles, "The Return" from a crystalline atmosphere of energetic material that transports you from nagging way to reverb sounds, it is both repetitive and crescendo, it is mostly purely enjoyable! In "Floating Time" the atmosphere is rather on the elements, on the waves, storm, water drops, it goes too, is mesmerizing at times, reminiscent of JM Jarre also and a battery that you force you into a trance if you do not have that; little background, in the days before, during the 70s, this music was used for fellows to "go" with music and drugs force! Now you only need a good channel or a soft helmet from far away on the filaments of a comet for example. So yes, a little one feels will say targeted as KLAUS SCHULZE; but what is good, a bit like when I listened to the "Sanctuary" of R.REED, it looks like Mr. OLDFIELD, but it is not !! Finally, "Mind Lake" still sounding title "Schulzian" with a darker atmosphere, it goes to the "Sorcerer" of TANGERINE DREAM early. Personally, this is my favorite track, perhaps a little short !!

I will say no more, this music is a pan full of progressive music, one of the four sides with metal and symphonic declination PROG (neo or crossover). I echo the words of a friend: "It is music that awakens his inner and transports you." It is not wrong at all, it is a singular moment is a dream now, you can listen far from the turpitude of the surrounding world, away from environmental stress, away from everything to also recharge a bit and rest his own ears! But the most important (as Jacques Mayol said in "The Big Blue"), it is a long personal journey to his own desires, the reason for my article where I do not dissect more specifically 3 titles!
