3 stars A drastical line-up change... Exit Laurent Vercambre and Hughes de Courson...

Some parts of the album like "Les sept jours de Mai", "Branle des cheveaux" are much heavier than similar traditionals on the previous albums. "Danse Bulgare" and "Chant des coqs" are still very nice. The highlight for me is "Les Transformations" which really sounds like Malicorne. Still I prefer the version "Les Métamorhoses" on "L'habit de plumes" by René Werneer (also a former Alan Stivell bandmember like Gabriel and Marie).

The rest of the album is rather weak... "2" and "Almanach" truly were progressive folk albums and also "L'extraordinaire Tour de France d' Adelard Rousseau" was excellent...
