3 stars This is not the Zeuhl I love so much"

For several years I ignored "Zeuhl" because I listened "Eros" by DUN, long before I heard MAGMA, and found a complex but extremely repetitive and lack of coherence album, so when I bought my first MAGMA release, a new world opened for me.

I won't say "Eros" is a bad album, has interesting jazzy moments, but I see no relation with the genre created by "Christian Vander" and company, the lack of "Classical" influence in the vein of "Wagner" or "Carl Orff" creates 180° degrees of separation between the spirit of "Zeuhl", maybe some sort of Jazzy Avant Garde but in no way relation with the magic of "Celestial Music".

Even more, the lack of vocals or fantastic chorals, the abuse of flute and extremely weird percussion makes it even more boring for my taste, to the point that I can't even choose a favourite track, because all of them sound so similar that seems like different versions of the same song.

The rating is quite easy for me, the album is not remotely a masterpiece and not even a great addition for Prog, because I could never define what they were playing, but the skills of the musicians is more than evident, enough to grant them 3 stars.

This is one of the few cases in which I understand why they didn't released a second record, being that there were not even enough fresh ideas for a debut, complexity alone is not enough for a superb release.
