5 stars Second (and last) album of excellent Canadian fusion band. Absolutely unknown band in Europe. This album, besides of Canada, was re-released in Japan only.

Every jazz-rock fusion fan will find on this album all the best this genre invented in mid 70-s. Mostly keyboards driven, music is filled with excellent guitar sound as well. Drumming is jazzy and accented in sound mixing, but it doing a sound even more modern. Hammond sound is on the level of the best prog rock bands of that time, but sound in total are more jazz rock than prog rock.

Compositions all are melodic and played with perfection, common atmosphere is fresh and optimistic (without cheese traces at all). Few songs have pleasant French vocals.

I found this band relatively late, and till now I wonder how so great band stayed so best kept secret for millions of fusion fans almost till now. Differently from some leading bands of its time, music there is well balanced, without soloing and back-up instruments, and for me it is more plus than minus.

One of the best jazz-rock albums from mid 70-s! Absolutely must have for any serious fusion fan.

Really 4,5, rounded to 5.
