4 stars An excellent return to form after the miserably run-of-the-mill 'Cyclone'. It's still a world away in sound from 'Rubycon' though. I really like the treated guitars on this one and the spatial feeling of the recording which separates 'Force Majeure' from it's follow ups. This is their last truly great album (with the exception of the very good 'Underwater Sunlight' from '86).

A classy late 70's album that is superbly recorded, where every sound is crystal clear. 'Force Majeure' is a fair bit more upbeat than its predecessors but at the same time is far more enjoyable. It also has a couple of cheesy moments in the form of disco era ABBA, but these are washed away with the fresh sound of the album and immensely catchy tunes. Not many complaints here. But a multitude will come in the following years.

Dobermensch | 4/5 |
