4 stars Once upon a time... A Canadian prog band lead by Pierre Flynn, Octobre were one of the major progressive bands in Quebec more precisely. Despite a rather chaotic career and production, they released a pure gem, "Survivance" in 1975 which is still not available on the CD form. I'm still wondering why. French speaking fans will enjoy the gorgeous lyrics of 'Suvivance', close to Atoll's fabulous 'Le Cerf volant' (in "Tertio" 1977) or 'L'oiseau rouge'. The others a very personal kind of prog in the 'French tradition' showing other influences such as King Crimson, a superb melancholy singer and awesome instrumental tracks.
