4 stars It took me a while to get used to the sound here. The sound quality is excellent it's just that the drums are very upfront.The guy is an outstanding drummer so it's all good. There 14 relatively short tracks here but several do blend into the next song.TRANSIT EXPRESS are a Jazz / Fusion band from France. This is all instrumental and quite impressive. Some clavinet to go with the electric piano, synths, guitar, bass and drums.

"Priglacit" sounds really good when the sound gets fuller. It suddenly settles with piano though, before kicking back in before 2 minutes. The drums sound so crisp. "Drousia I" is drum led as piano then guitar joins in. The guitar is outstanding to end it. "Drousia II" has the same style as the previous tune with piano, drums and bass leading. It blends into "Contrat-Session" which is uptempo with those ever-present drums out front. "Planerie" is laid back with no drums (gasp) until they kick in after a minute. This sounds better. It ends as it began. "Bahar" features drums, piano, synths and some good guitar.

"Contradiction" is uptempo and drum led. "Ludion" is a great sounding song with some atmosphere. The guitar is killer. I like the electric piano as well. "Wanda" opens with acoustic guitar, bass and we get some atmosphere as well. It picks up before 2 minutes. The electric guitar before 2 1/2 minutes lights it up. "Vinitier" has some spacey synths to start followed by an uptempo soundscape as the spacey mood stays. "Connection" is relaxed yet drum led. It blends into "Flaure" where we get some clavinet. This blends into "Coexistence" where the tempo slows while the drummer and guitarist do their thing. Keys and bass a minute in. It picks up after 2 minutes and the guitar is on fire. "ILS" has this catchy beat that takes over. Guitar after a minute then that beat returns as contrasts continue.

A low 4 stars from me. Well worth checking out.
