3 stars I have had this album in vinyl format in my collection for a long time and had not listen to it very often. To be frank, I bought it second hand, listened to it once or twice and just put it away. I didn't feel it had much to offer at the time. So, after a couple of years, I decided to give it a couple of spins to find out if I had missed something. Well, I don't think I have. It's definetely on the electronic side if you must give it a tag. Very close to Vangelis globally. But it's not that simple. Let me give a description of the first two tracks that compose this album : Poursuite sur le Peripherique Nord : an uptempo and instrumental piece. Very lively with nice (real) drumming. The piano and synths remind me of Goblin in their classic period. So quite a good track on the whole. 8 Aout 0H15 125-eme Rue : a slow driving piece which is led by a synth. Has a jazzy guitar solo that comes and goes during the piece. A nice synth solo in the end. And so the tracks are all quite different and never repetitive. Didier Lockwood also appears on this album on four tracks giving it an interest for fans of this violin virtuoso. François Bréant's link with Magma still remains not so much in the music but in the musicians who appear on the album : Didier Lockwood I've already mentioned ; Stella Vander (vocals) and Klaus Blasquiz (vocals). So a nice album but only for completionists although it does deserve for than two stars in my opinion.
