From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars Instrumental Zeuhl, pretty Avant-Garde with links to the likes of Frank Zappa. The Zeuhl style is added to by regular use of a flute and various percussion, particularly xylophones. Its a really eclectic mix and you'll either love it or hate it, but its certainly something different in the genre.

Although its probably the least Zeuhl-like, my favourite track is the first, L'Epice. This jumps wildly between styles, incorporating jazz rock, Canterbury, Zeuhl and the Avant-Garde etc. and features xylophones heavily. Its a suspenseful track but pretty fast paced, sounding somewhat like a chase scene. The bass playing is excellent, as is the tight drumming and occasional flute. Arrakis is equally fast paced and frenetic, with a lot more piano and flute to drive it. Equally a very good track. From here though I'm less enthused as Bitonio and the title track are a little too improvisational and messy for my tastes. But I can appreciate the strong technical musicianship so it would definitely go down well with certain fans.

Pretty decent.
