3 stars I believe not many prog fans know about this album. In its very early years Magma tested possibility to chose another, more accessible jazz-fusion direction. This album is the only result of that experiment, and Univeria Zekt is in fact Magma with guest vocalist and trumpeter.

Music there is quite different even from Magma's very first , still more fusion, releases. Bigger part of compositions there is jazz-rock, with brass-rock (Chicago style) elements and even few free jazz moments. In whole, the album sounds as a bit better than average jazz-rock album of its time with rare zeuhl flavours. It will be really difficult to compare this music with Magma's sound, and much easier - with bands as BS & T or Chicago.

To be honest, I like vocals and all this brass there on this albums, but main problem is compositions: all them are unfocused and with bulky structure (remember - I am speaking about jazz-rock compositions, not zeuhl). I believe this obscure album could be interesting for every real Magma's fun (just to hear how Magma plays jazz-rock). Not very attractive for fusion fans, this album contains not enough zeuhl to be interesting for zeuhl lovers. And it is obscure release, what make it mostly album for collectors.
