5 stars A masterpiece, in a strange and unlikely way.

Vander's visionary and genius is very slighty brought to the frontline here. MDK had 7 tracks, but let's just ignore them, because this is an endlessly moving piece of music (and you don't want to pronounce all the track's name, do you?). The repetitive piano chords, virtuoso drumming, complex arrangement and the highly operatic vocals sung entirely in Kobaian (which divides the opinion of proggers here: some thought it was annoying, while others praised it brilliantly) gives soul and power to their music, called Zeuhl by the fans.

But, strangely while it was a turmoil of piano, drum and high choir voices, this is, in another strange way, catchy. This is where Vander cast his magic spells. His brilliancy secured Magma's place and MDK legendary in their own ways.

Overall, no debates 5 stars from me.Period.
