3 stars HECENIA area band out of France who released 2 studio albums including the debut in 1989 which I was playing a lot recently and was really disappointed with it mainly because of the drum machine. Well here's the second record from 1994 and we're down to a trio here of bass, drums and keyboards. There is some guest harp too. So a real drummer? Apparently although I swear that long 24 minute closer has a drum machine on it throughout. Keyboards rule the day and night here with piano, organ and synth sounds, often two of those together. I have to admit this was a tough listen each time I put it on. That closer especially would try most people's patience I swear. The three short tracks are all solo performances by the keyboardist. A low 3 stars, I mean really low.
